Margie Didal discovered skateboarding at 12 years old, working as a street vendor next to the the now- closed “Concave Park” in Cebu, Philippines. After given a hand me down board from the locals, Margie quickly became noticeably better than most of the other boys at the skatepark. Margie's parents were initially skeptical of her pursuing a career in skateboarding but later supported her decision. In just a few short years later Margie is the Philippines first gold medalist in skateboarding and is ready to challange the world.
