A Girls-Only Day in Venice Beach presented by GRLSWIRL and Changing Tides Foundation raising money for philanthropic trips to get more women on boards.

Bringing women together to share in surf, skate, yoga, enviroment, & empowerment.


This will be an amazing opportunity to not only skate and hang with sisters in GRLSWIRL but to also meet and get to know girls from Changing tides! Changing Tides is a group of water women and adventurers from Southern California. They work globally to address social, environmental, health and safety issues. With their environmentally-focused projects, their aim is to do their best to fight single-use plastic and marine pollution as well as raising awareness of how we can all work together to protect our planet and combat climate change. This specific event is helping raise funds not only for GRLSWIRLS Skate Mentorship Programs, but also Changing Tides female empowerment projects. Their aim is to connect with and support women of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds through our love for the ocean.

Untamed Daughters and GRLSWIRL are bringing women together not only from surf and skate but other sports from pro snowboarders (Elena Hight) to pro photographers. You will be meeting and hanging with incredible women who have paved the way in their given sports for women like us to feel safe to learn

This event is the first ever of its kind!

Were going to take over Venice skate park! If you’re not digging the park, flat ground carving as well !

There will be great photos and video available after the event documenting the day : )

Its a great opportunity to learn to surf or skate if you don’t already, or to collaborate to perfect your skills.

All ticket sale funds will be donated to both Changing Tides Foundation and GRLSWIRL, going towards Changing Tides Women’s Outreach Mentorship Program in Peru and GS Skate Mentorship Programs in the states and abroad.

The lifeguard tower on the Venice Pier was broken into late Friday night.

The unofficial info we got was that one or two people broke into the tower, they rummaged through everything and made a mess. They smoked out while inside, then they took off with 2 surfboards that were stored in there. We will update with more info and the board photos once they are available.

Here's some of the photos from Saturday morning at the Venice Pier. This set was shot by Six12 Media.

You can find over 70 more photos from this session, all full size and in high-resolution, in this photo gallery:

One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based "sport" into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva.

At 61-years-old Alva, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alva’s brand of aggression and bravado in the 70’s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined. Vans’ The Tony Alva Story chronicles T.A.’s humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over.
