Switch Sessions Mount Hawke

This month I headed down to Cornwall for a weekend to attend the 2nd Switch Session at Mount Hawke. Switch is a monthly girls session held at the skatepark, there was a luanch back in November, but unfortunately i couldn't make that one.

Anyway, this time I got to skate a bit but also coached a few girls that were trying out skateboarding either for the first time or just wanted some advice. The crew were rad and came on strong in the couple of hours we had :)

For more info on the Cornwall Girls skate scene and for the Mount Hawke Switch sessions check out the Girls Skate Fal FB page

Here is a little edit of me skating the park...


I also managed to stop by the DC Showroom on the way back... Sick BOWL!!!!

Skateboard Coaching - Brighton Girls Workshops

This summer I got to work on a great programme delivering skate workshops to girls at Hove Lagoon Skatepark. We did two 6 week courses and had over 20 girls / women taking part. The girls really came on throughout the course and each was competent riding their skateboards around the park and going down banks.

During the course Olivia Bohac came down and shot some photos of the lessons in action! There are loads of great shots on her blog here http://oliviabohacphotography.tumblr.com/post/31731640809/brighton-skate-jam-continued

This is the second edit Lec and I made back in 2003. Most of the footage is from the old Crawley Skatepark but some is from our trip to Australia in early 2003.

Don't know why my trousers are so high and yes, my hair is well long! :)

Us Girls Hastings

This week I was invited down to the Us Girls project in Hastings to meet some of the programmes participants and do some skating at the gnarly bowl!

The weather turned out pretty good, although a bit on the windy side! I met some rad girls that were attending a variety of the sessions that the Us Girls Hastings project including a gym session that I looked in on.

It was also great to see some younger girls turning up at the park and I did some coaching and gave out some stickers!

Get Set Go - Malmo Ultra Bowl

After not having posted frequently for a while, this is gonna be an almighty blog post about the most awesome comp I’ve ever been to!
Malmo Ultra Bowl! The girls comp is known as Women’s Get Set Go and this was the 4th edition, now taking place as a street comp.

The early morning flight to Copenhagen was taken by myself, Hannah Neon Stash, Becky Jaques and Stef Nurding – quite a crew! We landed by 10am and so decided to spend a bit of time in the city and check out a few spots.





The flight was too much for some!
 











The first park was pretty rad and warmed us up nicely (footage to come!) for the Faelledsparken – the hugest skatepark I’ve ever seen. The park had a pool, a bowl snake run type bit, an overhang gnarly bit, a whoop-de-whoop middle bit with hips, d/ways and speed bumps and a street plaza. It was the shit! I immediately got involved with some airouts that a queue of kids were hittin up whilst Hannah was given a dropping-in lesson from Becky! Nice one Hannah!
 


As the evening we headed over to Malmo to meet up with Lovenskate boss and rider, Stu and Ewen! A little skate at Stappel before dark and an early night went down well.
 

 
Saturday morning saw the quarter finals for the girls comp and there were 29 girls in total! How rad is that?! It was cool to see the standard being so high amongst the riders and some really serious stunts. Sarah Meurle killed it on the Saturday, nollie heels mid run was a shocker! Julia Bruekler and Kristin Ebeling also ripped hard and made things look easy.
 

That afternoon Stu, Ewen, some other Brits and I all went off to check out Malmo’s other impressive skatepark offering that is Sibbarp! Swimming in the sea, Texas plants and a Chinese that served pizza (#unexpected) were all on the agenda!
Stu FS wallride, Sibbarp



Sibbarp



 
#perfectblues and backflips


Sunday morning played host to the semi’s and the finals! Good news was that Stef, Lois and I all made the cut for the semi’s! Stef landed a FS flip on the quarter which she’d only learned a few weeks back and Lois honed around. Julia, had a few more tricks in the bag too and Kristin was as powerful as ever.
 
6 made it through to the finals – Lois and I got in! It was sick! I wanted the Sal flip over the spine but I had to make do with a savage slam instead. Good enough to get 3rd and be stoked forever more with a badass board cheque J

NASS 2012!

So last weekend was the annual NASS Festival at Bath and West Showground. It was wet and muddy but Em and i were staying in a B & B so we were lucky I guess!

After stressing most of the day because we couldn't leave Horsham until 3pm, we actually had a good journey and turned up at the showground at about 6.30pm, in good time for the comp. lots of the girls were skating the flat ground area at the back of the course to get a bit of a warm up. Alexis Sablone was in attendance and popping tricks like your meant to.

The comp eventually got underway at about 8.45pm, a massive improvement on last years 11pm! There were 5 heats of 3-4 girls in each...a pretty decent turnout....mad international as well. i found it quite hard to get used to the course, not because it wasn't good (it was probably the best yet), but because i hadn't seen any skateboarding on it. There were obvious lines, but i like to see the mens comp to get inspiration and its good to know what speed you need for what etc. The worst thing was having to go first. Some girl bottled it and that meant that I was the first girl to have to skate their 1 minute individual run. I literally felt sick!!! Nervous wasn't the word. Anyhow, managed to skate my way into the final with 6 others; Swede Emma Fastesson, italian Anita, USA Lacey Baker and Alexis Sablone and Brazilian Leticia Bufoni!

I enjoyed the final a bit more and finally started to feel like my legs were my own! Results below:

1st Leticia
2nd Lacey
3rd Alexis
4th Emma
5th Lucy
6th Anita

Throwback Thursday #5 - Similie Magazine

This weeks Throwback Thursday is from october 2004. It's an article in a French Skateboarding Magazine called Similie on the Gallaz competition, Hossegor.



The comp was one of the best Euro Girls comps I've attended, the likes of Vanessa Torres and Violet Kimble were there ripping.

I went with my sister Rosie and she must've been 13 at the time.We stayed quite far away in Biarritz, which happened to be very expensive. Needless to say we run out of funds and had issues with no public transport on Sunday leading to hitch hiking and tinned peaches. Something she has never let me live down!

Recently I've become mates with brothers Jordan & Brandon La Roche. Jordan shoots photos, mostly of skateboarding, in and around West Sussex. We've skated together at Henfield skatepark a few times lately and he's been documenting some of the pics over on his blog http://jordanlaroche.tumblr.com/

Here's a couple of his shots
