  1. Hi, I’m Katie, just starting skating again (used to skate when I was like 10 :D). I don’t know any skaters here in London and I don’t know where to turn so apologies if this is completely irrelevant and annoying. I really want to go for the first ride tomorrow but I’m still missing wheels (student’s cash flow problems at the end of the month..:D). So my question is, do you know anyone in London who has old but rideable wheels to sell for cheap? I would be really grateful for any help… Thanks a million and have a great weekend! Katie

      1. Thanks a lot, I was too excited and ended up buying new wheels.. So dry rice and water for the rest of the week it is for me! 😀 But I’m following on FB now 😉

  2. Hi I’m 14 and I want to start skate boarding but I’m quite shy and I’m abit worried about going to the local park as there are a lot of older people there, especially boys, I don’t have much confidence around people I don’t know… Do you have any advice for me ?? Thanks

  3. Hi to any women skateboarders, I’ve never skateboarded but would love to learn. Am a very young 46 yr old. Can anyone advise me where to buy, what type of board and where can I learn. To be honest I feel a bit embarrassed but what the shell you only live once!

  4. Greetings to Girl Skate UK Team,

    Hope you all are feeling well and healthy

    I am Abdullah from Afghanistan, as I have learned basic skateboarding here in Afghanistan, but I personally don’t have any skateboard to try at home or streets to advance up my skateboarding techniques and to teach skateboarding to some interested kids around our house so if there is any one to grant a skateboard to me, I will appreciate their help.

    Best Regards,

    Abdullah

  5. Hello I’m Rute, 16 years old and I’m in Birmingham.I’m starting skatebording and I would like to know if I have a skatepark here and if there are some girls here. Bye 🙂

    1. Hi Rute!

      There aren’t currently any sessions we know of in birmingham, however we do have a birthday jam coming up at the end of March in Leicester that maybe you could travel to!
      keep up to date with happenings on our Facebook and instagram pages @girlskateuk ! Thanks! 🙂

    2. Also! Check out Unit3sixty on Facebook as they are based in the west midlands and host girls only sessions once a month. Get in touch with them to find out more!

      thanks!

  6. Hey I’m 24 years old and From southampton, I want to learn how to skateboard but I’m to shy to go to a skate park as I have no friends that are into skateboarding so I would have to go on my own but I don’t have the confidence to do that, I feel like people will laugh because I’m to old to learn or somthing! Do you have any advice? 🙂

    1. Hey! You are never too old! We know ladies who have picked it up at 45! 😉 I would suggest popping along to a girls session (you may need to travel but it will be worth it!) and getting to know some girls, it’s not as intimidating as you first think! Ellie Ford is from Southhampton and a super happy and friendly lady, add her on Facebook or instagram (@elliefordy) and we’re sure she will be happy to help you out 🙂

      1. Hello everyone, im from Manchester, I also want to learn skateboarding, but dont have anyone around, who do that. If you have any information, which can be helpful, please let me know:)

      2. Hi Svetlana! There is a Facebook group called ‘Manchester Girl Skaters’ where you can meet other girls in your area and get updates on the fortnightly girls only nights at Projekts Skatepark. If you have any further questions please email girlskateuk@gmail.com – happy to help 🙂
