TransWorld WAKEBOARDING hosted the first-ever Ladies Learn to Ride day Tuesday, Nov. 2, at the Carlsbad Lagoon, giving more than 20 women from the industry a chance to pick up some tips from Liquid Force professional riders Melissa Marquardt and Grant Roberts. The event, which was organized in collaboration with Mahfia.com, Spy and Liquid Force, is one of the first in a series of future ride days that TransWorld WAKEBOARDING and partners plan to hold for women in the action sports industry.
“It was nice to get to learn what our riders do so we can better appreciate what we are promoting and working toward in action sports, while getting to be a part of the action and having the chance to meet the other awesome women and men we work with in the industry,” says Jenny Lane, Body Glove’s Events and Promotions executive assistant.
Thanks to event sponsors Vitamin Water, Luna bars and Wahoo’s Fish Tacos. Stay tuned for a Mahfia.com video of the event.
TransWorld Media added Wakeboarding magazine under its umbrella of titles in September, with an official launch party at Surf Expo in Orlando on September 9, 2010. Visit the official website for more information on TransWorld Wakeboarding.
