ohhh yes! more skatergirls please! yay!!

@SYLVIABLACK, i'm in Texas too and it doesn't seem very conducive to the boarding. I go to college down here and it's fun to skate around campus, but that's about it. When I visited Cali and Philly, it's much better. I'm definitely going to move after I graduate. ^_^

i love to see brown folk on skateboards. i love to see girls that are good on skateboards. First black pro skateboarder i saw was early 90's. He was sick, skated on boulders in SoCal...wish i knew his name. I used to skate in grade school when I lived in Orange County. Good enough to get around but thats it...and then the move to Texas killed that. My affection for the sport and culture never waned. Right now Im in Venice Beach. There are a lot of longboards and other odd wheeled modes of transport all around the boardwalk : /  I wanna see more young girls beasting! How old is she? And now for some skateboard silliness...
