In 2012, Lisa Whitaker created Meow Skateboards to fill a void in the skate industry because she saw very little support for women’s skateboarding. Now, 10 years later, Meow has a team of more than a dozen skaters. That’s only the scratching the surface of Whitaker’s skateboarding story, one that goes back over 25 years and includes life as a sponsored skater; early contest circuits both in front and behind the camera; decades of filming skating; and the founding of the Girls Skate Network in 2003. With top pros like Vanessa Torres, Mariah Duran, and Kristin Ebeling, Meow practices what it preaches. Check out Red Bull’s latest episode of ‘Good Work,’ featuring Meow, above.
Duran appeared in our inaugural Women’s Battle At The Berrics. Watch her first round match, and her appearance in our ‘Skate Girls’ series, below:
