Briana King and The_ONES Are Bringing Together Girls Through Skateboarding

 

 

With her nationwide Girl And Queer Skate Sesh Tour in full swing, professional skater and model Briana King has partnered with The_Ones to empower the community one ollie at a time. King credits skateboarding as a turning point in her life and mental health and wants other girls to know that when you’re on the board, you can face your fears and be yourself.

Whether it’s the fear of falling or being rejected, King is well aware of the obstacles that often keep girls from ever picking up a skateboard. Once an outsider herself, King was encouraged to start skating by other girls in the community and now wants to extend that invitation to girls across the country. It’s important for her that guests know there is no skill level required and you don’t even need to own a skateboard. Her sessions are all about creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and the top priority is having fun and making friends.

 

 

“This is what we love and what makes us happy. It’s not a competition. We can be goofy and be ourselves. We’re in it to make friendships and help each other out.”
