Texas Vert Revival

vert revival posterThe rebirth of vertical skateboarding.

We are starting from the ground up . Vert will always have a place in skateboarding and I think taking it back to its roots is the best way to move forward. I  am so stoked on all the new breed that are doing it for the love of vertical! Vert has become too mainstream in the last decade , and that made it isolate itself from real skateboarding. Bringing it back to the shut up and skate era will get it back in touch. We are starting small but I believe this can grow into a amazing event in the future and hopefully have a domino effect on vert contests to come. I want to add pro/am and masters at the next one. Can't wait to see all you rippers skating this weekend. Good times to come.

Thanks to all involved

Congratulations to Lizzie Armanto, Allysha Bergado and Arianna Carmona who all came away with wins at Exposure 2014! Female skaters traveled from all over the states, Brazil and Australia to enjoy this unique event held every year at the Mission Valley YMCA. It has a world class pool and an 80' wide XGames vert ramp! This girls only event was started by Amelia Brodka to help expose more fans to see how amazing the girls in 2014 can be! This year she has been premiering her movie UnderExposed to theaters nationwide with a great response, showing the history of girls skating and giving it a big push into the future!
