Ladies take over on Saturday in Venice Beach

The Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks is celebrating gender equality this year, with the first ever Venice Beach Springtime Ladies Skate Jam taking place Saturday, April 30 from noon until 4:00pm.

The event will celebrate women in skateboarding.

The contest itself will consist of individual runs in the snake run and mini bowl. In addition there will be a “Pup Cup” which is an event for very beginners. It will be on flat ground and there is a good chance there will be some ties for first place.

Pros and Legends will be there to sign autographs in the VIP tent and they will also be doing demos in the big bowl. Meeting pros and legends promised to be fun for everyone, not just the skaters!

Sponsor booths will be set up on the walkway into the park creating a festival atmosphere where visitors can browse and shop.
