As Told By Daniela Ramirez
A collaboration between the Poseiden Foundation, Skate Baja, A. C. and Sk8Ens, Hang out & Skate (Patina y Cotorrea) consisted of 2 events in Ensenada, México, during July, organized to inspire the youth.
4th of July, Punta Banda III Skatepark
Amelia Brodka is the first female pro-skateboarder to skate the Punta Banda skatepark and was well received, playing games of skate with some of the youngest skaters. It is safe to say that Matt Condon had a great time as well.
We left the skatepark to hit other spots not before enjoying fresh seafood by the sea. The day ended with everyone happy skating a mini-ramp and saying farewell right before sunset.

Women’s Skateboard Street
It was an amazing but yet competitive day for all of the female xgame street skaters. First place went to Leticia Bufoni, with a score of 88.00, Lacey Baker coming in at Second place with a score of 86.00 and our Third place Marisa Dal Santo with the score of 81.00. All of the girls did an amazing job pulling in a huge crowd and nailing all of their tricks.
Each of the athletes callaber of style and technicality during each heats showed their dedication and hardwork when pursing their common goal: Their love for skateboarding.
XGames, 2013 Los Angeles, wouldn’t be the same without all of the phenomenal skaters and event organizers that create opportunities for athletes to continue their passion.
Skate Con Gusto.

The Girls Combi Pool Classic is creating opportunties for the girls to unite and show the skate industry just how talented they truly are!
This year is Poseiden Foundation’s second year to attend the Girls Combi Pool Classic that was presented by Vans and put on by World Cup Skateboarding (WCS).
Both on Friday, January 17th and Saturday January 18th the level of talent that was at the Combi is one that leaves goose-bumps all over your body and chills that penetrate ones bones. It was a sight to see and we feel honored to have witnessed the ladies skating first-hand. Poseiden Foundation has followed the tough road many females have traveled and fought to keep the female skate community dreams alive. Thanks to the constant advocation of females that have paved the way for more female contest, equal prize purse and acknowledgement within the skateboard industry and media, more and more females are coming out of the woodworks with ripping style both in the United States and on a Global level.
With the help of Poseiden Foundations Media Crew Photographer Grazi Oliveira and Filmer Jackie Ramirez, we were able to document and interview many of the girls that were attending the competition. Many of the girls gave Poseiden advice on how they stay positive and how they focus before they have to skate before an event such as the Combi Pool Classic (Stay tuned for the pictures and footage by Poseiden Media Crew).
