Some of the most gifted skateboarders in the world will put their talents on display in San Diego when EXPOSURE: A Women’s Benefit Event returns for a third straight year on Saturday, Nov. 8, at the  YMCA in Encinitas.

The event is free for spectators, and runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“The most progression I have seen in modern day female skateboarding has consistently occurred at EXPOSURE,” said Gabby Ponce, a gold medal winner at both the X Games and Dew Tour.

Competitors will include the youngest ever X Games medalist Alana Smith, who made history at EXPOSURE 2012 when she became the first woman to land an inverted 540 spin, otherwise known as a ‘McTwist’.

EXPOSURE partners with Carol’s House, a shelter for survivors of domestic violence that is run by the Community Resource Center in Encinitas.

“With a large gap in government funding for domestic violence programs in San Diego this year, we couldn’t be more appreciative and thankful for the EXPOSURE event,” said Paul B. Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Community Resource Center.

This will be the first year that the event will be held at the YMCA in Encinitas. The 37,000-square-foot park was just recently renovated.
