ABOUT DUCHESS RIDE
The story of Duchess Ride stems from different backgrounds, age spans and styles. But the common thread is a passion for board sports — and the founders of Duchess Ride “crew’ed” up and never looked back.
Behind three powerful local women, Duchess Ride helps young girls gain confidence with a crew of their own, learning to snowboard or skate along the way.
Together they know dreams are possible, but they don’t just happen.
