Poppy's Story

Poppy Starr has just returned from skating at the new XDubai skate park in Dubai and competing at Vert Attack in Sweden - the largest Vert competition in Europe.
 
I’m all about encouraging more girls to skate. I look forward to representing Australia in skateboarding at the Olympics one day. It’s looking more and more likely that it will be in Japan 2020; this is going to be the best thing ever for Women’s skateboarding. Poppy Starr.
 
At the shy age of 15, Poppy Starr has joined the elite group of pro skaters around the world that are competing on a world stage.  Poppy is younger than most all her competitors competing the open division and continues to out-rank many of her peers both male and female who are almost a decade older than her.  Already a passionate pioneer for women skaters in Australia and voted as one of the Top 12 Most Influential Girl Skaters in the World of 2012 at the age of 13, Poppy is quickly becoming one of Australia’s greatest exports.
 
Poppy’s talents extend into the art community as a jewellery designer and card designer and it was the sales of her art that help fund the early stages of her competition career at the legendary Bondi Skate Park.  She now has an established business with her art being sold online and in several stores across the country.
 
Poppy is in high demand as one of the most booked young speakers in Australia and most noted for her TED talk at the age of 14.  She inspires young people to find their passion and gives great tips on being a young entrepreneur finding ways to fund her passion.
 
Poppy has recently signed to 6 Degrees Group for management as their youngest talent and one of their most promising.  She currently holds endorsement deals with Vans, Ride TSG and Girl is Not a 4 Letter Word, and sponsors include Theeve Trucks, Stance Socks, iSkate Australia, and Sanbah Surf Shop.  She has made appearances on Saturday Disney, ABC Kids, Sunrise, The Project, and has regularly featured in publications such as Dolly, Girlfriend and Total Girl.
