The Poseiden Foundation have been putting on women’s skate events at The Berrics for years, and their annual Ladies Nights are some of the most eagerly anticipated. On November 7, Poseiden is holding a very special Ladies Night featuring their very first Global Virtual Game of S.K.A.T.E.! Girls from all over the world have signed up for this competition—which begins today and also includes a goofy vs. regular contest—and there will be special guests galore! The Finals will be held here at The Berrics during the Ladies Night festivities, and will also be livestreamed through our @berrics social channels.
Not only are continents around the world represented, but sovereign nations skaters are representing each of their tribes within the Americas. And, because there are some bracket spots still available for Africa, each native participating in the Global Game Of S.K.A.T.E. will also be helping to raise awareness for female skateboarding in the continent.
Poseiden’s huge United We Skate outreach program has a goal of giving 100,000 skateboards to at-risk and homeless youth. In addition to this initiative, the foundation has also provided food for over 6,500 people; picked over 3,000 pounds of citrus; and collected over 50 pounds of honey for at-risk, low income, and homeless communities.
Here are some of the many events planned for this year’s Ladies Night: Skate clinics, sessions, and filming; a Best Trick competition (open to all skaters); a humanitarian outreach fundraiser, including a skate equipment drive, and an opportunity for the skate community to build homes for the homeless; and much more. Please visit the Poseiden Foundation site for more info!
