“Skateboarding challenges me and helps clear my mind at the same time,” says professional skater and artist Nora Vasconcellos (@noravexplora ). ”There is no better feeling than riding away from that trick knowing you put so much energy and effort into doing it.”⁣

“It has always been difficult to be taken seriously as a female skateboarder,” explains Nora. “I always wanted to be seen the same way and taken as seriously as the men are. I wanted to travel and create products like the men. I wanted to be put on the same pedestal as male professional skaters.⁣

I hope watching me skate inspires you to go out and do something that makes you feel good.”⁣
