[Music] [Applause] [Music] yeah I guess it’s like a really rough raw country but it’s really beautiful there’s all these little cultural things that I really like but girls have been oppressed for so many decades now damp expected to like be girly and like do all this girl stuff so that’s what I really like about skateboarding that it doesn’t really have those set rules I have this thing called girls get in yeah I try to promote female skateboarding within the country when you see a girl skating for themselves and having fun it changes the perspective of what a girl can do and it also teaches them a lot about their own capabilities [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] we just got to bangalore india so we’re going to skate park right now you’re gonna be messing with concrete and we’re gonna teach a girls clinic Lizzie’s one of the best female skateboarders right now she’s done amazing things for the females gay community you know I didn’t expect to be doing this straight off the fight yeah we have no mercy jetlag or not finally girls it could as he was coming to do a workshop with us they were stoked because they grew up watching home videos once these girls see what’s possible they’re gonna have new aspirations and dreams that like she’s gonna ignite in them I am skating for life two years with a DITA and I would love to skate with Liv and when I found out that Lizzie is coming to Bangalore for the workshop I got super excited Nene was coming here some little town on the west coast of India and companies coming here is from a little fishermen village she is the only girl in that whole village that skates regularly today is so good day and today is the workshop opened and you guys know yeah [Music] lizzi’s hearing she’s like the best in word he’s so good skater in the world I started skating three months ago my first time skating at the ramp is a skate on the road I can unveil I’m gonna meet you I’m better than welcome but sad incurable do you guys have any tricks that you want to learn or like you bet you’re trying oh you have it what is it they make you a handprint it’s not too hard once you get the hang of it [Music] what about you you want to hold an otter and skate dang that one’s good on this house got news [Music] it was cool to see like all the different levels of the girls and most of my group everyone learned a trick when you see like another girl skate just having that reference you know it’s possible you learn self-confidence through skating the more girls get into that the world will change [Applause] skateboarding in general like just allows you that freedom to just choose whatever wealthy whatever do whatever it embraces difference and it embraces the beaut nosov life and like accepts you in a way and there’s so much power [Music] [Music] [Music]
