“Skaters were today celebrating victory after a 17-month fight to save the “spiritual home of British skating” on London’s South Bank.” So reports the Evening Standard, adding that “in its 41 years (the space) has hosted some of the greatest skateboarders on earth.”

Today’s article reminds me of another recent piece I read, entitled “Women's Skateboarding: Why It Matters To Skate Like A Girl.” Think again if you thought that skateboarding was for men only: female skateboarders may not yet receive the same acclaim as men but they are hot on their tail. Watch out you male South Bank skateboarders: there are new skateboarding sheriffs in town!
