Rob Hewitt founded Oh-So after his daughter took an interest in skateboarding. When they went to buy her a skateboard, they notice that the selection was male-dominated, and she questioned why she couldn't find something she liked. Oh-So is a magazine that celebrates the global female skateboarding scene.
In this issue: Prior to the global pandemic, we had just returned from a trip to California where we joined Sky Brown and Rayssa Leal to watch them skate together. It was positioned as a small skate trip (riding in the van was included) we visited a few local spots—it was amazing. That was when the world was another way. We began to realize that the road trip has more lessons to offer us at this moment than previously thought. While it is a reminder of our desire for interconnectedness, it is also a reminder that movement (traveling near or far) brings wonder and awe to our lives. Through it all, travel always continues and so skateboarding and the road trip will also continue. We also celebrate Allysha Le’s prominent place in the Global Skate Scene, the emerging talent of Giovana Dias (Brazil), Haylie Powell (Australia) and among others the amazing Jordan Santana (Texas) who is on the journey to skate next year’s Olympics, Tokyo 2021!
