386,398 Girl Skaters in Brazil

Thanks to divaskateras we’ve just been reading about some new research from Datafolha that indicates there are 3.8 million skateboarders in Brazil (or 3,863,981 if you want the exact published number!!) Anyway this is obviously a serious amount, comparable even to the populations of entire countries!!

Given that 10% of skaters are female in Brazil, that means there are 386,398 girls out there carrying the flag. Thats amazing and really cool news.

The research went on however to explain how given these large numbers there are insufficient parks and areas for skaters – and how there is an urgenet need to build suitable sites for the practice of skateboarding, taking into account the different types of skateboarding and skateboarders.

Wise words.
