Introducing Mimi Knoop

Introducing Mimi Knoop from the USA! Mimi is one of the most respected female skateboarders in the world. She first turned pro in 2003, has won 5 gold medals at X Games and she takes some amazing skate photos as well. We can’t wait to share them with you at the exhibition.

Mimi works hard behind the scenes too. She co-founded The Alliance, a not-for-profit organisation that strives to empower and encourage young women’s participation in skateboarding and increase professional opportunities.

She also started Hoopla Skateboards, a girls skate brand whose team consists of some of the best female skateboarders in the world.
