Erica Jacobs

I started skateboarding at age 20, I fell in love with the freedom of expression it gave me. I competed locally and nationally throughout my 20's. Travelling with my skateboard, I met amazing friends along the way. In my 30's, I decided to change my skate path into a community leadership role and founded 100% Skate Club in 2015. My goal is to bring girls and women together in a welcoming and safe community, to have fun and share our passion for skateboarding!

In 2015 I heard about 100% Skate Club in an article featuring Erica in the Metro Newspaper. I’ve been attending ever since that first sesh on April 1, 2015, starting skateboarding (again) at the age of 50. In season two, I began to help Erica by managing the photography and social media for the club.

As 100% grows and becomes a non-profit in 2019, I’m involved on a deeper level connecting and collaborating with community partners, and strategic planning to ensure 100% Skate Club goals are met now and in the future.

Skateboarding has changed my life. It’s the first community where I feel like I belong, 100%

Hi, I am Yura. Mother of three kids. Mimi and Lucy are part of 100% Skate Club. I love to volunteer while including my kids, as we enjoy the outdoors together. I am still a beginner skateboarder myself and excited to develop more skills this season.

Quite a few winters ago I won a skate deck at a snowboard competition, I didn’t skate at the time so it ended up being art on my wall. Then in 2015, the 1st season, I heard about Erica & 100% and decided it was time to get a set up for my deck and see what the skate club was all about. I thought it would be a great way to support my other two favourite board sports: snowboarding & surfing. Little did I know we would be building this rad community of skater girls in Calgary. I enjoy the positive vibe that surrounds the 100% sessions and like spreading that vibe by contributing to our social media channels. Also, if you ever need help dropping in: don’t be afraid to ask, I’m happy to help!

I joined 100% in the summer of 2017 after John Hiebert, a local Calgary skater, told me there was a club for girls and women. I now assist 100% coordinating their digital marketing through their website, social media and helping Erica and Marlene however I can with our meetups and events. The truth is, I don’t think I would have taken my skateboarding to a skatepark, for fear that I wouldn’t fit in, if I hadn’t learned about 100%. I didn’t realize until that first night how wonderful it is to be a part of a community of girls and women, just like me, that love to skate. To echo others, skateboarding changed my life!
