This past weekend I had the opportunity to witness a moment in history that I will never forget, the first ever ALL GIRLS VANS Combi Pool Classic. I was there helping out my associates, professional female skateboarders Mimi Knoop and Cara-Beth Burnside. Burnside is the equivalent of a female Tony Hawk when it comes to skateboarding and both girls have a pleathera of X-Games Titles under their belts. For more info on them, check out their team page on the hoopla skateboards webstie. I am currently assisting Skate One with their female skate brand hoopla skateboards, so I went down to the Block in Orange County to set up the vendor tent and show my support as it relates to female skateboarding. All of our flow girls and pro riders did an amazing job skating in the event and I was proud to be there supporting them. All I can say is that I really need to skating the vert. I am totally inspired. I don't really surf, so skateboarding is my calling when it comes to action sports. Hopefully soon I can rock the bowl.
