“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.”
