I've been skateboarding since 1973. I skate because I love skateboarding. Thank you everyone for the calls, texts, likes and comments. I am truly thankful.
There are several men's categories. I don't want to complain but putting all the women in one category is rough. Each decade had it's hero's. The bowl riding we did in the 70's is nothing like what these women and girls can do now. I've ridden since 1973. My first race was in 1973 my last race was Nevada City 2017.
