Around 2015 – 2016, I wanted the experience of designing and launching my own mobile app. Around the same time, I had my second child and skateboarding had to take a back burner. To stay connected to the scene, I used instagram hashtags to search for women skateboarding videos and images. I decided to make this easier, I developed a simple app that takes the Instagram API and filters images based on hashtags. The most popular hashtag was #ladiesofshred. With that, an app was born for iOS and Android.
