Skateboarding Hall of Fame 2016

Saturday, May 13th I attended the Skateboarding Hall of Fame ceremony 2016 held at the National Grove of Anaheim. I've been lucky enough to attend this event the last four years, but this year stood out as one of the best, as a woman I have great respect and admiration for, Cindy Whitehead, was inducted. Introduced at the Skateboarding Hall of Fame ceremony by Joan Jett via video which was followed by a live intro from renowned skateboarding photographer Bryce Kanights, Cindy gave a powerful speech that is certain to resonate for years to come. You can view both Joan Jett's intro and Cindy's acceptance speech by visiting a website that supports girls in action sports created by Cindy Whitehead herself: girlisnota4letterword.com/2016/05/joan-jett-bryce-kanights-introduce.html
