2014 Exposure on November 8th was a fantastic event and drew the largest crowd and competitive field of women to date at an Exposure event. The main goal of the event is to grow the base of female participation in skateboarding and to help raise funds for survivors of domestic violence. With a slew of new sponsors and larger participation in the event they garnered $20,000 for the pro Vert and Bowl competitions, and accomplished their goals in great fashion.
There is a great description of the event in the Press Release (Click Here) so I will keep my write-up brief and with pictures 🙂
After the Bowl competition the it was time for a little break in the action, only the break just had more action. It was a Happy 50th Birthday tribute session for one of the most legendary bowl skaters ever, Steve Caballero. The best Frontside Invert session ensued for about 30 minutes. Lizzie Armanto threw a couple down for the ladies and got ‘best’ prize, and several of the guys were throwing them. Daniel Cuervo made some stellar ones and got the prize!
Daniel Cuervo’s winning FS Invert style reminded me of Jeff Phillips R.I.P.
After the Frontside Invert Jam the attention was turned to the vert ramp. Putting yourself through one contest on any given day is rough, but this day there were two. A few of the girls opted out of the vert ramp comp, but a few new ones gave it a go. Once the judges and MC got set it was tome to roll, there was money on the line!!
