Cindy Whitehead knows a thing or two about being a girl in the male dominated sport of pro vert skateboarding, paving the way as one of the top ranked professional female vert skateboarders in the U.S. for pool riding and the half-pipe. Since her days as a pro, Cindy has been the stylist behind most of your favorite athletes and brands, including Tiger Woods, Gatorade, Kobe Bryant, and the NBA. When she’s not skateboarding down closed LA highways, Cindy has devoted her time to the Dusters California collaboration, “GIRL is NOT a 4 Letter Word” with portions of the proceeds going to the Girl Riders Organization along with Longboarding for Peace.
Cindy’s efforts highlight the fact that not a lot has changed since the ‘70s, “The younger generation is asking for more female skateboard coverage, so why aren’t we giving it to them? Why are we not promoting women skaters all this time and especially now?”
The board is set to launch at the 2013 Vans Warped Tour and will be available in stores in July. Stay tuned to Sneaker Report for the latest details and further release information.
