What hasn’t yet been said about Jerusalem? In the world, in the news, we usually hear about hatred, division, religion, radicalism and politics. One city, two cities, a city within a city – obvious separation between religions and between secularism and religion, but despite that – everything co-mingling.
If you look at Jerusalem closely, through the skateboarding community, you will quickly find a very different city.
We Jerusalem Skater Girls meet together for skate session every weekend.
During the week most of us are busy – in school, at university, working. The weekends are our time to skateboard, to hang out together a...
We waited a long time for a female skateboarding tour.
In the last summer, our dream comes true and we did the first skateboarding tour for
girls in Israel.
6 girls, 1 photographer 3 days
We started in Haifa and we kept from there to Hadara Netanya and finally Ashdod.
At each place, the local skaters joined us to kill the skate spots.
It was an amazing and challenging experience for us, we got to know each other better,
cross our boundaries and have a great time.
We are excited to present the full video
It was our third annual competition, in cooperation with the Jerusalem Municipality.
This is the only competition in Israel that dedicated specifically to women’s skateboarding – by girls, for girls.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the girls' community in our scene, by giving girls and women the feeling that they can do it, that they are free, that they belong. By giving girls the confidence they need to do what they dare and expose more girls to skateboarding and raise the level.
The competition took place at the Jerusalem skatepark on May 21 st.
Two crews of skater girls riding in the big city - Tel Aviv
This past August, a group of skater girls from Germany came to meet our JSG –Jerusalem Skater Girls crew, as part of the cooperation between Adidas Originals and Girls Are Awesome. Because, you know – girls are awesome.
We rode around the streets of Tel Aviv for two full days with a production and film crew, led by Laura Kaczmerek – a skater and photographer – and her friends from Germany. We skated with them, had some great food, hung out and visited some spectacular spots – some of which we had never heard of before!
The bond between the two crews was immediate and amazin...
The "Attraction" water park, at Kalia Beach on the Dead Sea - the lowest place on earth! - was abandoned years ago, but once upon a time it was a spectacular and enjoyable water park. I remember as a child I spent several times enjoying the huge slides and the wave pool.
Today, 15 years later, I return to the water park that went bankrupt and was abandoned, only to discover a Skateboarding paradise! When you reach the place you can't avoid the colorful appearance of the slides combined with the sand, thorns, cracks and aridity that characterizes the Dead Sea.
We got there with five skater girls and a photography crew: Paola, Royal...
JSG organized our first by girls, for girls competition in 2016. This year we decided to go next lever, organizing a bigger and more professional competition , in cooperation with and support of the Jerusalem Municipality.
The event took place during the Passover spring break, at the Liberty Bell Skate Park in Jerusalem. Skater guys and girls came from all over the country, and although it rained periodically, forcing breaks every now and then, the stoke was high.
So what went down at the event?
U15 and adult run, for girls and for boys. The fantastic DJ Flow Nevo spun the tunes, and even the rain couldn't through him off his gam...
