Is there anyone on the planet supporting female skating as much as Cindy Whitehead?
A world famous skateboarding legend, Whitehead is most widely known as the first and only woman to ever grace the centrefold and two page spread of a skateboarding magazine, yet her commitment to promoting women in the sport reaches far further than this accomplishment .
A professional skateboarder from the age of 16, Cindy officially retired from the sport at age 22 to begin work as a stylist. In 2013 she launched her own female skate brand Girl Is Not A 4 Letter Word, focused on empowering girls in the skate scene.
Now Cindy has pushed the scene once more, releasing It’s Not About Pretty, the world’s first ever hardback book on the radical women in skateboarding.
