Portland, OR, January 6 2017 Nikita announced today a partnership with Poseiden Foundation, the non-profit organization focused on empowering youth to actualize their dreams through the sports community, with a special focus on action sports. Nikita kicked off this partnership with a sponsorship of the 8th installment of Ladies Day this past November that Poseiden Foundation hosts at The Berrics in Los Angeles, CA.

“Nikita’s roots are in skate, so of course we were drawn to sponsoring Ladies’ Day and excited to be a part of it said Vicki Vasil, Nikita Marketing Manager. “Poseiden’s cause makes an impact for girls in skateboarding—and beyond—globally, which matches our brand’s aspiration to inspire rebellious confidence in girls no matter what their passion. We think that together we can synergize our combined message to inspire more girls all over the world.”

The ladies that comprise Poseiden Foundation were equally moved by the idea.

“Over the years Poseiden Foundation has followed female brands that inspire and motivate females to pursue their passion and accomplish their dreams,” said Poseiden Founder and President Micaela Ramirez. “Nikita does just that with their advocacy, athletes, and as a company as a whole. Nikita has been a brand I personally have followed since 2000, and it’s an honor to be collaborating with a brand that understands the importance of building confidence, giving strength, and helping the female community to flourish by connecting like-minded females that are philanthropist, athletes, and advocates within our society.

Ramirez continued, “We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Nikita and are looking forward to growing together by making a stance and showing the world how collectively we can make a difference within our communities. The NikitaxPoseiden collaboration will inspire, empower, and educate the females, males, and youth about the importance of pursuing their passions and accomplishing their dreams across the globe.”

Nikita will support Poseiden through a synergy of event, product and social media collaborations, promotion of its cause and outreach, and a commitment to empowering girls across the globe.

Art, like skateboarding, is a vehicle for self-expression and a means to showcase real talent. Two striking young women, Carolina Lujan and Susana Arbelaez, created a mural at 4Sur skate park dedicated to three of the absolute legends in women’s skateboarding: Cara-Beth Burnside, Patti McGee, and Ellen O’Neal Deason. It was heart-warming to mentor these women throughout our time in Medellin and it is their appreciation and dedication to continuing the progress of their mission that Poseiden Foundation will continue to support. It is rewarding to see the joy their mural is bringing to everyone in their skate family, including our very own Amelia Brodka and Mecu Videla who had a blast skating the section at 4Sur!

Our second contest was held at Viga skatepark on December 4th. Viga is one of the many government funded projects headed by Corporacion EVG Extremo which offers a drug, alcohol, and smoke free environment for skaters to enjoy. The competition was fierce as the girls skated for best trick in both the Open and Novice divisions. Huge congratulations to Ana Rendon for taking 1st in Open and Lizeth Melissa Paez Pinto, in Novice. Other prizes were awarded for the quarter pipe, longest manual, and highest ollie over stacked boards. True to Poseiden Foundation style, the crowd went wild for our giveaways where girls and boys went home with Nikita Clothing pins, new skate parts, shirts, shoes, and enough stickers to spread across Colombia! We look forward to following these talented humans and hopefully seeing them fulfill their dreams of competing in the USA!

Poseiden Foundation is passionate about treating the environment kindly and we strive to educate, motivate, and participate in environmental conservation activities. On December 4th we continued our ongoing collaboration with Techo, an international, nonprofit organization that mobilizes youth volunteers to fight extreme poverty in Latin America by building transitional housing and implementing social programs. Techo por Colombia partnered with the entire Humanitarian Tour team to help build a community garden in the Nueva Jerusalen barrio which will grow enough fruits and vegetables to feed over fifty families! The local children spent the day learning about photography with filmer Mecu Videla while the families explained their immense gratitude for this opportunity of providing food for their loved ones.

The first contest kicked off December 3rd at the 4Sur skate park where over sixty women showed up to compete in the Open and Novice divisions. While the prize packages were wildly impressive and everyone came to win- it was the overwhelming sense of unity, support, and friendship that was truly worth showing up for. The community, skaters, and the future generation of riders were stoked with all the giveaways and watching the talent each of these ladies showcased throughout their best runs. Placing in the Open division were: 1st Jazmin Alvarez, 2nd Anna Maria Falla Toro, 3rd Ana Rendon and in the Novice division were: 1st Viviana Quintero, 2nd Alejandra Ospina, 3rd Lizeth Melissa Paez Pinto. We love the pure joy Viviana showed on her face when she won 1st and her new Active Ride Shop deck! Also, we couldn’t be happier for the three ladies who won these terrific Triple 8 NYC helmets: Juliana Vargas, Manuela Molina, and Juliana Gomez!

One of the proudest moments of the tour was the December 2nd Inauguration Ceremony at the Concejo de Medellin (City Hall) where EVG Extremo, Skategirl Colombia, and Poseiden Foundation were recognized as leaders in the history-making, female skateboarding movement! Emotions ran high as the Skategirl ladies presented on the importance of healthy habits, the history of skateboarding, and our very own team leaders: Micalea Ramirez, Amelia Brodka, and Paco Manzanares delivered powerful speeches on the importance of believing in yourself to a room full of supporters.  With backing from the government and the determination of these athletes, Colombia is on track to take the industry by storm!

Creating peace and unity through community-wide volunteerism is a key aspect of all Poseiden Foundation Humanitarian Tours. With the generosity and support of our dedicated sponsors, we had the opportunity to partner with A Color- Pinta el Pesebre Medellin, a project based organization that beautifies low-income neighborhoods increasing both the visual curb appeal as well as the pride of the people. It touched our hearts to paint alongside the children, families, and co-creator of Skategirl Colombia, Daniela Gonzalez. This transformation of homes, nearly an entire city block long, will create a lasting image of peace, hope, and pride for Medellin.

Our tour kicked off December 1st at the Club Rotario Envigado where we met with an inspiring group of young high school leaders who volunteer their time educating and mentoring their neighborhoods on the importance of grades, graduation, teamwork, and unity. Along with Paco Manzanares of Amor al Skateboarding, our videographer Yvonne Navas, and co-founder of EVG Extremo, Sebastian Montoya, we taught the group techniques to face and overcome their fears as well as the fundamentals of skateboarding. All of the students, as well as some of the teachers, were thrilled to skate for the first time and will definitely keep practicing at one of the community built skate parks.

The Poseiden Foundation’s mission is to encourage our youth to follow their dreams and realize their greatest aspirations in life, whatever they may be. This year’s 4th Annual Humanitarian Tour brought the team to Medellin, Colombia for an international collaboration with Corporacion EVG Extremo and Skategirl Colombia, two organizations who aim to empower the female skateboarding movement throughout the entire country. Thanks to all of the sponsors of the 8th Annual Ladies Day at the Berrics and the generosity of private donors, we were able to spark a fire in the female skateboarding community that has only just begun!
