WHAT THE QUELL? 🤷♀️🛹🍻
We were so excited when we heard Quell was holding a day-long series of events last February in partnership with Leo Baker’s NYC Skate Project and sponsored by Nike SB. NYC Skate Project was started by Leo to provide programming for gender non-conforming, trans folx, non-binary folx, and CIS women who skate. We were able to send our MOST EXCELLENT east coast correspondent and resident beginner skater Maya Haptas out to the event and she gave us a run-down of what it’s like to attend.

Lots of money was raised for survivors of domestic violence. 5. Many skateboarders won prize money that will contribute to their skateboarding dreams & aspirations.
