When the rad dudes at Freedom Skatepark reached out to us about hosting a Women + Queer skate sessions called Mercury 13 we knew we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. It was awesome to come back to help this year and skate the new obstacles repurposed from House of Vans in Philadelphia, built by 5th Pocket. The park is so welcoming and had something for every level. Clif Bar provided the yummy snacks, and we had lots of raffle prizes to give out from: Krux Trucks, Independent, Bronson Berrings and Creature. Check it out this winter and keep an eye out on Freedom’s Instagram for more events.
