Sparkles, tutus, radical drop-ins: these six-year-old skater girls defy doubters

The three six-year-olds who make up San Diego’s Pink Helmet Posse let their considerable skating chops answer any questions about their dedication, as they shred away gender stereotypes, all while dressed in head-to-toe pink. With equal doses of humor and girl power, Pink Helmet Posse profiles the tutu-clad crew as they consistently defy expectations (and gravity) in a sport where girls are traditionally underrepresented, and tend to drop out at an early age.
