Last weekend Barcelona hosted its first Women in Board & Action Sports Conference. Over 50 women gathered from all over Europe to enjoy four days of inspirational conferences, networking, wakeboarding, skateboarding and dirtbiking. This was the 7th annual event.

The event kicked off with a webinar with Women’s Skateboarding Alliance’s Mimi Knoop and Mahfia TV’s Kim Woozy. There was a interesting debate about how to make yourself valuable and start a successful career in the action sports industry.

To wrap up the first day of conferences, Cameron Norsworthy from the Flow Centre, told the group what the scientific definition of ‘Flow’ is and how they use it to work with athletes and improve their performance.

 

The two day conference also focused on entrepreneurship, technology and content marketing. Delegates enjoyed some of the best facilities around the Barcelona Province: Saturday evening they wakeboarded in the Malamar Wakepark and Sunday they jumped on dirt bikes in La Poma Bike Park guided by local bikers Gemma Corbera and Laura Celdrán. They finished the weekend on a skateboard in the Skate Agora skatepark with JM Roura and Louisa Menke.
