"Exposure 2019" Photos

The eighth annual Exposure Open brought women from around the world not just to compete, but to support one another. Across ages and places, Exposure highlights the friendship that skateboarding fosters, and the incredible positivity that women’s skateboarding enables. Fans and peers got to watch and skate alongside their favorite skaters, like Samarria Brevard, Lizzie Armanto, Nora Vasconcellos, Vanessa Torres, Allysha Le, Brighton Zeuner, and more. Thanks Exposure, we’ll see you again next year!
