Who are the women revolutionising the world of sport?

This Is Off The Wall is an editorial partnership between Vans and Huck that celebrates creative trailblazers from across the worlds of art, skateboarding, music and photography.

In Changing The Game, we’re looking beyond skateboarding: exploring the wider world of sport, and the incredible women who are transforming it.

From surfers and fencers to sumo wrestlers, we want to spotlight the boldest young voices pushing boundaries within the global landscape. Whether they’re making history, pioneering the resurgence of forgotten practices, or defying tired stereotypes, we want to champion resilience, independence and creativity.

The season ties in with the launch of Girls Skate India – a Vans-produced short looking at the country’s skateboarding scene, and how girls are defiantly embracing the sport despite it being seen as a ‘nontraditional.’ Watch the film in full below.
