Grounded on Feminist Studies and Gender Studies, this research analyses the ways through which skaters have constructed their places as subjects in this sport universe. The analysis of different kinds of documents has led us to identify skateboarding as being crossed by power relations, which foster distinct opportunities and sociability for men and women. Due to this differentiation, women built places, discourses and practices not only making their presence visible but especially the existence of this sport in Brazil.
