Tourist Day with Morgen & Taylor

 

Morgen Lester from Texas and Taylor Beatty from Florida came to California for the Supergirl contest, so afterwards we did
a tourist day around Santa Monica and Venice Beach. We started off at the famous Santa Monica Triple Set.

 

 

Then we skated down the boardwalk to Venice.

 

 

Taylor flexed for the Muscle Beach guys.

 

 

Met up with Racine Hopkins for a quick session at the mini Venice park.

 

 

Taylor backtail on the beach.

 

 

Morgen tried on every single Mexican Wrestling mask on at least once before deciding on this keeper.

 

 

Taylor was pretty hyped on the McLovin' ID she found.

 

 

Slashin' around town.

 

 

We ended the day with a foggy roller coaster ride on the Santa Monica Pier.

Supergirl Woodward West

 

There were a couple new faces at the Woodward West Supergirl Pro/Am Jam.  Brooke Whipp traveled down from Utah
for her first big contest and made it into the finals.

 

 

Young Chelsea Castro from Long Beach also made the cut.  I'm sure you will be seeing more of these 2 in the future.

 

 

Racine Hopkins hanging out before her run.

 

 

Vanessa Torres and Sophie Poppe had a rough day.  They got lost on the way to the contest, blew a tire in the middle of the
desert, spare tire already had a hole, stuck on the side of the road in the summer heat, lurked on by sketchy truck drivers,
rescued by Supergirl staff, barely made the end of the contest, skate with no warm up and Vanessa topped the day off with
a rail to the hip. High five!  Big thanks to Neal Hendrix for loaning the girls his spare so they could get home.

 

 

And the winners are...

 

 

The Board Bunnies crew with 5 year old ripper Annika Vrklan, sister, Leticia and Sophie.

 

 

Yeah Yeah!!!

The girls gave it their all this year and several of them ended up in the medic tent after the event.  Abisha Alshebaiki with an
iced shoulder after her slam on the 12 stair rail.

 

 

After winning the Maloof Money Cup a couple weeks ago Leticia Bufoni and Brazilian friends Ana Paula and Liza got
"Yeah Yeah!!" tattoos to celebrate.

 

 

Paco and Paloma from Mexico's ChicaRider.com came out to support the girls.

 

 

Evelien Bouilliart put her body through some abuse today.  She took some of the hardest slams, then got right back up and
pulled her tricks.  The announcer kept saying she took the warrior award.

Sunday with the Nitus

 

I had made plans to skate LA with Sophie Poppe, but she bailed on me...again.  So the Nitus and I made the best of the day
by checking out a few spots.  Elizabeth learnt smith pop outs.

Dew Tour Boston

 

This trip started with one of the most stressful mornings of my life.  A car accident on the way to the airport left me stuck in
traffic for nearly an hour.  I had to do some begging to get escorted to the front of the security line so I could make my flight
and make sure to be in Denver to meet Elizabeth for our connecting flight to Boston.
Once we meet up and I knew she
wouldn't be on the other side of the country alone I was able to relax.  After checking into our hotel the Skirtboarder girls
came by for a visit.

 

 

The ladies street practice started at 8 a.m. so Elizabeth and I woke up extra early to give us some leeway to figure out the
train to the stadium.

 

 

It ended up being simpler than expected and we arrive and hour before the course opened.

 

 

It was really good to see International girls like Candy Jacobs in the mix.

 

 

Sarah Meurle, Leticia Bufoni and Abisha Alshebaiki hanging out between heats.

 

 

Sarah Meurle from Sweden also made her first appearance at a US event.

 

 

Alexis Sablone, Lacey Baker and Vanessa Torres took the podium.

 

 

Lyn-z Adams Hawkins took time to interview Vanessa Torres for Fuel TV between skating the street finals and winning
the vert contest later in the day.

 

 

The recent progression on the vert ramp impressed the crowd.

 

 

Lyn-z was getting 540's  all the way around.  I have a feeling we will be seeing this one soon.
