What is She Shreds australia?
She Shreds Australia is a local community organisation that was established by keen skater and father of two Jared Andrew in 2014 with the intention of increasing girls' participation in skateboarding. What began as a social media group set up to find some like minded girls for Jared’s two young daughters to skate with, very quickly became an active skateboarding institution within the Australian Skateboarding community. She Shreds runs skateboarding sessions for girls and those identifying, on weekends in the greater Hobart region. As well as an opportunity for friendly non-competitive socialising at skate parks, She Shreds also provides basic skateboarding lessons for beginners and is aiming to host skateboarding competitions as physical distancing restrictions allow. As an incorporated body with an active committee and support from Local Council, Government and the local skateboarding industry, She Shreds Australia is fast becoming an icon in the Australian skateboarding community.
She Shreds is a not for profit organisation, joining up is FREE! She Shreds supplies boards and safety equipment for all beginners for introductory sessions. Social skate sessions are Sunday from 10am to 12pm, generally at Elizabeth College Skate Park (but we try to change it up once a month!).
