Mimi Knoop Guest Pro Board Now Available!!!
Meow Skateboards is extremely honored to have been able to surprise Mimi Knoop with her 1st ever pro board! At the height of her career, there was little to no support for women skateboarders. Then after co-founding Hoopla Skateboards with the mission to encourage both girls' participation and progression in skateboarding she helped support upcoming talent and eventually turned others pro, but was too humble to make one for herself. So we had to change that!
Mimi Knoop is one of the most respected female skateboarders in the world. She has claimed 5 X Games medals in women’s vert & has cinched titles at some of the world’s most prestigious bowl contests.
Always pushing for progression, Mimi has been one of the most active women in skateboarding behind the scenes, as well. As an advocate and entrepreneur, she has been dedicated to growing the sport for the girls of the next generation by co-founding The Alliance in 2005, Hoopla Skateboards in 2008, and Women's Skateboard Alliance (WSA) in 2015.
Mimi represents women’s skateboarding with passion and enthusiasm. She is a tremendous advocate and ambassador for young girls breaking into the skateboarding and action sports scene.
We love you Mimi! Thanks for all you do! 💛
