In the past, skateboarding has been a male-dominated sport, and adidas Skateboarding's 'Nora' video shows the extent to which that has been the case. The digital short from the adidas Skateboarding team is the first in its twenty year history to feature a female rider: Nora Vasconcellos.

'Nora' is a twenty-minute digital short that documents the rise of the 25-year-old Vasconcellos as a pro skater, from her childhood in the town of Pembroke (outside of Boston) to her more recent relocation to California. Though it might be difficult for a female pro skater to be taken seriously in a field of men, Vasconcellos is consistently lauded for her effortless skating style that has been praised by other pros as "pushing her limits and skating as hard as she can."
