Nurding is angry about the tokenism that’s going on in the industry re:putting a girl on flow just for the sake of having a girl on the team.
She does have a point - it took Plan B ages to put Leticia fully on and it does seem like a lot of companies put on a girl and then do very little with her (enjoi and Samarria). Although board companies are doing very little full stop compared to the amount of videos they used to put out. WKND have done more with Alexis though.
This is all a big step up though from say 10-15 years ago when it was only really Elissa and Marissa who got any coverage. Even if it’s tokenism, isn’t this a positive step?
From a British perspective, are there many women who deserve being fully hooked up on a pure talent level? LA is for sure. Josie Lori rips but has had a bad injury.
It’d be really sick if a fully female team could make an impact on the industry in terms of sales and coverage. Have women present themselves on (largely) their own terms. I wonder if the number of female skaters are big enough to sustain a company like that yet?
