Shredder Girls



Off to The Vans Warped Tour to spend the day hanging out with my girls, Laura Thornhill and Edie Robertson. We were all pro skaters "back in the day" and were invited to judge the Masters Skate Contest today by the super cool Patty Segovia-Kraus who owns and runs the All Girl Skate Jam. Patty has done much for women's skateboarding it's insane.

The funny thing about all this is that Laura and Edie came up through the ranks right before me and we never met. I admired them in magazines, and even emulated them to some extent. I remember buying red Vans sneakers to be just like Laura when I first started skating and later I ended up being sponsored by Sims Skateboards just like Edie was. Our paths were so close, yet never crossed.

Well thank goodness for Facebook and skateboard reunions! I ended up meeting both of these rad girls in the past few years and its like we have known each other forever.

Its going to be a BFF kinda day and totally rad - I can't wait!



Here are all of us way back when...

Ohmigosh Cindy have the best time EVER! When I was twelve I begged my mom to take me to All Girls Skate Jam but she was working, and couldn't get me there. One day I vow to attend an event! :)

I am so jealous! If I was in the States, I would have LOVED to go to the Warped Tour. (I was watching a video on the Vans Girls website earlier and I so wanted to be there). Hope you have a great time!

Sooo cool. I had multiple pairs of Vans "back in the day" and now you're making me wonder if I still might have a pair somewhere...
