My name is Bailey Te Maipi and my love of skateboarding started at age 6 at the skateparks of Kāpiti.
I was one of only girls skating at the time and in the last 20 years since, not much has changed.
Which is why I’ve started WAA HINE Skate. Having taught rangatahi across the region for the last few years, I wanted to focus on creating space for more wāhine like me to pick up a board and their sisters on the way.
I know firsthand the mana enhancing experience skating can provide and I look forward to a future where girls skating is normalised, recognised and celebrated.
So, nau mai haere mai. Let’s skate!
