Words by Margarita Buenaventura

Ask a short girl about this and she’ll roll her eyes: reaching for the top shelf, riding roller coasters, or getting constantly carded on a night out. Drawing the genetic short straw isn’t always easy.

But two friends, Cre and Cara, don’t seem to give a damn about being vertically challenged. On a lazy weekend, B/BLOG shoots this petite pair spending the afternoon at an unlikely place—a skate shop.

In comfy joggers and boyish blazers, strapped in helmets with their boards by their side, these pint-sized pals show us that it may not always be easy being a short girl. Still, it sure is a lot of fun.
