Designing better dads

Gnarly in Pink

As many of you know, some friends and I raised over $20,000 on Kickstarter last year to make a documentary called Pretty Rad For A Dad.

The film is still in production, but every now and then I find little stories like this one that remind me where the idea came from... Dreaming of teaching my son to skate the same way my dad taught my brother and I when were kids.

This short film by the New York Times media team is as inspirational to me as a young dad, as I'm sure it will be to any 6 or 7 year old girls out there.

Bella, Relz and Sierra are the founding members of the Pink Helmet Posse, and they are as rad as it gets.

Not only are they ripping up bowls and rails all over Southern California, they've created a killer set of boards, accessories and (of course) pink helmet, available on their site.

If you've got a little girl in the family, we hope you'll watch this with her and let us know what she thought of the PHP.
