I spent a lot of time watching adolescent and teen girls learning to skate and they all had one thing in common... how they dressed. They all wore boy clothes that were baggy and dark (literally, clothing sold in the boy's department), usually with a baseball cap (under their helmets) to boot. But when classes were done, they would go back to whatever their typical style was. One little girl went back to an actual pink tutu. This inspired me to find professional female skaters who don't fit the standard male mold. This is Kristin Ebeling and Jasmin Kwan of Skate Like a Girl proving fierce comes in all shapes and styles. You definitely don't have to be a boy to skate like a pro. You can be. But you don't have to be.
