"Action sports is at a point where it's pretty mainstream," says Mahfia's Kim Woozy. "People are way more open to the idea of being sponsored by a corporate company. Before, you were a sellout. Now there are no lines."

Case in point, Samarria Brevard is sponsored by movietickets.com, along with Mimi Knoop, Nora Vasconcellos, Andy Macdonald and Alex Sorgente. In a world where female skateboarders have trouble getting endemic sponsorship, more mainstream partnerships like this might be where the women's market is headed.
