The founders of women skate the world at the skatepark in Asira, Palestine.

Hey, we are Women Skate the World, nice to meet you!

Who are we?

Women Skate the World consists out of two team members, Nanja and Amber. We met in March 2018 when volunteering with SkatePal in Asira, Palestine. We’re both passionate about women’s skateboarding and using skateboarding to empower communities and build confidence in young women around the world. We decided we wanted to keep going and travel to other community skate projects, around the world, encouraging women to skateboard, working to give women positive role models in skateboarding and give them a chance to develop themselves and their communities. 

What we do

We are available to work with, and at skateboarding projects around the world, providing them with a ‘Women Skateboarding Program’ consisting out of skateboard classes, non-skate educational classes and a youth leadership program. If you’re interested to work with us, or receive information about the Women Program feel free to send an e-mail to nanja@womenskatetheworld.com.

When we skate, we feel free, we feel empowered, we feel like nothing can hold us back. The global skateboarding community is a powerful and positive force, we want to bring that force to women around the world and spread the joy and power that skateboarding brings to us.
