VP OF SPORTS & COMPETITIONS | PARTNER
OWNER OF MEOW SKATEBOARDS
Lisa Whitaker has been the driving force in connecting the women’s skate scene with each other and with the world for many years. She is a talented skateboarder and former competitor that found her calling on the other side of the lens. Lisa launched thesideproject.com in 2003 to feature her all-female skate videos. Over the years it has evolved into the Girl’s Skate Network; a social network where girls from all over the world can share their pictures, footage and opinions. Lisa is a mentor and tour guide to all the girls that land in southern California and she has been to almost every major women’s skate event since 1997, either competing or documenting and quite often both. Lisa has also been involved with athlete selection and talent scouting for X Games and other events for over ten years.
