Focused on the male-dominated and socially/spatially provocative skateboarding subculture, the article presents the argument that skateboarders locate themselves at the “edgelands” of mainstream culture, which is also the position occupied by female subjectivity within skateboarding. Considering female involvement as a performance intervention, the article explores representations of women in skateboarding from an industry perspective, followed by an analysis of several progressive female skateboarders as exemplary of a performance of gender that problematises the dominant “alternative” masculinity displayed by heterosexual male participants.
