However, the continued underrepresentation and purported misrepresentation of
skateboarding women in the mainstream and niche media, coupled with the
contradictory and increasing prevalence of skateboarding as a viable activity for
young women (Wheaton 2009), calls for a more extensive investigation of
skateboarding media. Furthermore, as suggested earlier and as claimed by
Laura Azzarito (2010), through their interactions with media texts, audiences may
adopt subject ...

As these groups were vying to establish the legitimate styles of skateboarding,
one group was consistently excluded: females. Whereas the 1960s and 1970s
skating establishment embraced female participants by providing opportunities to
formally compete and by providing media attention, the 1980s emphasis on a
street-wise and anti-authoritarian style marginalized females. In fact, most
contests dropped the female category altogether, such that women like Cara-

So when he directed me to listen to the skater on the screen it was immediately
clear that he was telling me, “This is what skating is all about for me. Skating has
saved my life.” It had expanded his peer group, opened his eyes to new ways of
thinking, and provided him with a social space in which he could hone his
strategies of self-expression. For Braden, skateboarding media served as a
reflection and projection of himself, his values, and his aspirations. Although I did
not know ...

They skate inside a virtual community of their imaginations and seek to progress
the discipline by sharing what they've done with others. The community of skaters
largely does not exist in physical space; their community is facilitated by
skateboarding media and now more immediately by social media. The cognitive
map of Los Angeles covers an immense geographic expanse, but rather than “
staying local” in one's specific area like many Angelenos do, skaters go to spots
that suit ...

The number of these modern primitives has grown steadily alongside the
increasing size of the skateboarding industry. Those who scorn videos and other
media must be cautious, however, to avoid the sterility and selfrighteousness that
usually accompany Puritanism. This decision to shun images of the professional
ranks is unheard of in sports. No football fan turns his back on NFL games to
become a more fulfilled player. Videos play the same role for skaters as visits to
galleries ...

The two most prominent aspects are embracing risk and the marginalization of
women. Mainstream sport is defined by masculinity. In other words, mainstream
sport helps reproduce masculine values, through which risk is encouraged and
women are subordinated. In skateboarding media, images of injuries and stories
about being injured are valorized. Pain is the currency with which skaters gain
acceptance and establish cultural capital. Female skaters are not viewed as risk
takers, ...

The second (and a big selling point of skateboarding) is an emphasis on the
traditions of an anti- team-sports attitude, a disrespect for authority, and a
suspicion of the organized competition that goes with it. Specialized
skateboarding media and industries, especially manufacturers of boards, wheels
and shoes, like to highlight the outsider/DIi (do-it-yourself) status that
skateboarding has cultivated during its recent history. The continuing success of
skateboarding, as both a sporting ...
