Why skateboarding's 'not just for guys'

Organisers of a regular girls-only skateboarding session are challenging what is perceived as a predominantly male sport.

According to governing body Skateboard England, 85% of skaters in the UK are male.

But despite this, female-only nights have popped up at skateparks around the country.

The sessions at Flo Skatepark in Nottingham are also open to transgender and non-binary people.

Chloe Stafford, from the group, said: "Skateparks are really intimidating so just seeing a bunch of girls is quite comforting for them [female skaters]."
