A few opening words.
Skateboarding was born in the late 1940s in California and turned out to be one of the most attractively dangerous sports throughout the world. When hip-hop culture has been in vogue, skateboarding follows this trend and has come to its youth. In recent times, youngsters are so into the thrills and spills of this high-risk sport.
Skaters give prominence to their creativity and liberated lifestyle. Although this is not a safe sport at all, guess what, it can’t stop us ladies from becoming a fan of skateboarding!
Skateboarding is not only for males. Spinning, flipping and soaring along the streets or the skate parks, these ladies show their hidden talents while standing on the skateboard with stunning and unique skateboarding techniques, which are guaranteed to make the crowd look at them admiringly.
So, let’s take a look at the most well-known girls skateboards on Instagram!
Who are the famous female skateboarders on Instagram?

Beside her talent, Lizzie is a famous skateboarder who has a huge number of fans, but she always shows up in simple clothing. Surprisingly, this is one of the reasons why she stands out from the crowd.

Using a longboard is now becoming a new trend among youngsters. If you think this skater looks quite familiar, let me remind you: this talented skater appeared in Far East Movement Music Videos in 2016 showing her eye-catching performance on the skateboard!
Not only that, Ko Hyjoo successfully gets the attention of Vogue, Hypebae, Marie Claire, and lots of notable big-name brands in the world.
Ko Hyojoo makes her own different way of skateboarding
Every step she takes is much like she is dancing on the skateboard. Her Instagram account is full of skateboarding videos combining with music which attract millions of views and hundreds of comments per video.
It might look fun and simple, but actually, to perform like her, skaters need to be 100% focused on the skateboard to make sure that they won’t fall. This is a true talent. I consider her as a perfect example for a whole new skateboarding generation.
Talking about her fashion, Ko Hyojoo follows a casual and sporty style. This skater once shared that she loves to wear knee socks mix with short jeans while skating.
