2015 Gold Rush Giant Slalom Results and a few pic's

Back from a great weekend in Sacramento, staying at Shannon and Jamie Hart's house with Cliff Coleman. Jamie, Cliff and I have been skateboarding together for almost 40 years. We do it for the ourselves not for anything else. Being from NorCal we were not Skateboard Magazine material. Living North of the media is like living on another planet. We laugh we hug and we encourage each other to go fast and have fun. Our boards are high tech our bodies are not. Though I have to say since I have been doing Crossfit for almost 2 years and the past 6 months going 4 days a week I can say I am stronger than I have ever been in my whole life. It helps on the walks up the hill and turns going around the cones. My only regret was not going off the big ramp, otherwise no complaints. I may not be the best skater and never would claim to be. But I can say I have skated competitively longer that any woman skateboarder that I know of.

Thank you Cliff for the women's skateboard history lesson we will be talking more soon. I learned their are a few women never mentioned in the skate history that were from Norcal in the 60's. The SHOF folks only know the SoCal history they don't know about NorCal or other places all over the world that have been as passionate about skateboarding. As mentioned before just because you were never published in a Skateboard Magazine does not mean you are not dedicated to the life long passion and addiction of being a skateboarder.
