I am truly honored to be included in this years Skateboard Hall of Fame 2018 induction. Yesterday at noon I watched the Facebook live announcement. I told myself to be prepared to not get in so I wouldn't be disappointed. To my surprise I was the first person announced by Laura Thornhill. Congrats to Pattie Hoffman who was the only other female to make this years SHOF. More will get in. It was the first time I was on the list.
Thank you to all my friends and family that supported my skateboarding passion. To Cindy Whitehead and John Ravitch who always believed when I did not.
Here is the ticket info on the event set for a special Starwars May the 4th be with you date.
