The Late Shift: Freestyle

Skate Girls Tribe

If you’re near the Alexandria area of Virginia, sPACYcLoud and Skate Girls Tribe have a must-attend event for you to see this Friday, June 30th.

Part skate park, part secret pop up art show, Late Shift: Freestyle opens its doors to the rebels, the misfits, and the crazy ones. To those who see things differently and those who push the human race forward. We’ll be repping this philosophy at the event, because it’s our shared philosophy!

The details are super rad: experience a late-night art happening along the riverfront and in the Torpedo Factory. Founded in 1974 in an old munitions plant, the Torpedo Factory Art Center is home to the nation’s largest collection of working-artists’ open studios under one roof. That’s cool enough as it is, but it also has an indoor skate park! Skate Girls Tribe is ready to blow it up (pun intended)!

About sPACYcLOUD: sPACYcLOUd is the manifestation of a revolutionary spirit always pushing people to be liberated from social constraints through expressions of love, peace and creativity.  Our competition follows trends. We follow our vision and philosophy.

About Skate Girls Tribe: SGT invites girls of all ages & all abilities to come together and skate with other girls in a big fun group. Skate Girls Tribe was created in Washington DC to empower young women through action sports.  We hold monthly events to celebrate life, art, culture, education, and fun via skateboarding and longboarding. We also organize surfing and snowboarding camps.

Skate Girls Tribe promotes confidence and assertiveness, individuality and creativity, strength and dignity, all gathered together with a love for action sports. With a vigorous setting of play and sociality, SGT nurtures and sustains these values and goals. With such virtues in place, we believe that healthy and responsible choices will be made later in girls’ lives.

– There are several open spots for artists to be part of poetry slam if anyone is interested.


Just Kickin’ It Saturdays

Just Kickin' It Saturday's

Join us on June 17th at Skate Girls Tribe “Just Kickin’ It Saturday’s” skateboard sesh at Mount Rainer skatepark at 4pm. Learn to push, ride, ollie, kick-flip, grind and drop-in, make new friends, and have fun!

Event is followed by an outdoor screening of “Hermanas En Ruedas” (Sisters on Wheels), a documentary by Amberly Alene in partnership with Electicllama and Prince George’s African American Museum.

Hermanas Er Ruedas

Film tells the stories of young women in the underground skate culture in Havana, Cuba. Skateboarding in Cuba emerged in the 80’s but has recently grown rapidly with the new interchanges of culture and art from abroad that are taking place on the island. In Cuba, skateboarding is still an unrecognized sport by the government, and the girls search to find their paths in a subculture that is not only male dominated but also completely underground.

Imagine “Living Life in Peace” with Mattie Stepanek by Ekaterina Nekrasova, 6th grader


Mattie Stepanek was an American Poet who published six books of “Heartsongs” poetry and one book of “Just Peace” essays. All of his books reached The New York Times bestsellers list. He became a peace advocate and motivational speaker, and lobbied on Capitol Hill on behalf of peace, people with disabilities, and children with life-threatening conditions. Unfortunately, Mattie passed away before his 14th birthday.  


Mattie’s life was short but he motivated and inspired people from around the world. That is why Skate Girls Tribe decided to host a small get together at Mattie JT Stepanek Memorial park. 


It was a beautiful day, not too hot or cold, with a gentle breeze.  We invited some of the kids at the park to do a limbo contest with us and gave away the prizes.

sPACYcLOUd prizes

We skated around on the smooth roads, played on the playground, and threw a frisbee on the field.  Everyone had a great time!  We love Mattie’s park because it is so peaceful and Mattie’s energy is felt through the park.


Peace, Ekaterina Nekrasova


Fine Lines Mural Jam by Ekaterina Nekrasova, 6th grader

                       Fine Lines Mural Jam

          On Sunday, April 6th, Skate Girls Tribe was part of the art pavilion at Fine Lines Mural Jam along with Little Friends for Peace, Albus Cavus, and DC Bow Bows.  It was a beautiful Sunday.  The event was hosted by Words Beats & Life and HiArts and sponsored by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.  The jam was produced in collaboration with The Fridge and Albus Cavus. 


           The event started at 11am with some artists arriving as early as 7am. There were over 70 graffiti artists painting on a 990-foot long wall.  Artists came from all over the United States.  Everyone was nice and worked together. It was a great sense of community. 

 Hippie Jump

            Skate Girls Tribe held limbo, skateboarding limbo, game of S.K.A.T.E., and Hippie Jump contests. Out of all of them, the Hippie jump was the hardest.


         Even though it was hard, everyone had a great time. Many of the kids played skateboarding limbo contest in which players had to get under the pole on a skateboard  or longboard.


     As the pole came closer to the ground, it got harder and harder, until we got a winner! Everyone enjoyed all of the contests.

Open mike performers

         Many local HIP HOP artists came to participate.  Everyone had tons of fun.  Random kids sang and we all danced. At about 4:00 pm, everyone grouped up to listen to singers perform. Pokah Havoc, Lee, Anwar, Doe Vicious and several other MCs made the crowd move, dance, and clap. They were amazing!


          At the art pavilion, Little Friends for Peace, Albus Cavus, DC Bow Bows and Skate Girls Tribe sponsored by sPACYcLOUd provided kids with all kinds of activities.
