AMELIA BRODKA

EXPOSURE: A WOMEN'S BENEFIT MOVEMENT
FOUNDER

AMELIA has been dedicated to skateboarding since 2001. She was born and raised in Poland, then moved to New Jersey and Maine, and has finally ended up in the mecca of skateboarding: Southern California. While attending USC, Amelia actively competed in WCS events. After graduating from USC with a double- major in Communication and Narrative Studies, Amelia wanted to find ways in which she could help bring women’s skateboarding to light. First she directed and co-edited a feature-length documentary on women’s skateboarding called Underexposed. Underexposed went through the festival circuit in 2013 and received honors such as “Best Documentary Film” and “Award of Merit.” Underexposed is currently available on iTunes, Hulu, Amazon and Google Play. After the film was finished, Amelia created an annual all-female skateboarding event called Exposure. In 2012, Exposure hosted the first ever McTwist to be performed by a female in competition (Alana Smith). By 2014, the event grew to offer the biggest prize purse in women’s transition skating and had the largest amount of competitors of any women’s skateboarding event. Each year, the event donates its proceeds to survivors of domestic violence. Currently, Exposure has grown into its own non-profit (Exposure Skate) that empowers women through skateboarding.

In the past, Amelia has held positions such as: Writing for the Public Affairs office at USC Annenberg, Public Relations at DC Shoes, Marketing at Red Bull NYC, Special Projects Liaison at Woodward West as well as Skateboard Instruction at Woodward West, Aura Skateboarding Company and Neal Mims Skate Academy.

Currently, Amelia manages Exposure Skate, does freelance video production, marketing and social media work and teaches skate lessons in San Diego. She is still actively competing in various skate events across the globe. Her current sponsors are Theeve, Vox, Arbor, 187, Concrete Disciples, XS Helmets, Black Bear B12.
