Calling all girls who want to longboard: Melbourne longboarding community Sunset Skate Sessions is hosting a free lesson for beginners.

The Sunset Skate Sessions are free and run every weekend, but this is a series aimed specifically at women new to the sport. It's never too late to learn — Jesslyn, creator of the events, started skating when she turned 30.

"I never, ever thought I would skate as I didn't grow up with the culture or have friends who skated. So when I got my longboard in the USA, I was determined to convert my friends to skate with me and have a more active lifestyle," she says.

For some more femme power inspiration, check out icons like Hyojoo Ko in South Korea and Parisienne Cassandra Lemoine tearing up the longboard game. For the next session, bring your own board and meet at the entrance of Luna Park in St Kilda on March 4 from 4pm.
