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.

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.

Seattle Trip Part 2

 

Saturday we checked out the Seattle Chowder Bowl Contest, then had a fun session at Red Square.  Amy and Nugget.

 

 

Tuna Poanessa with some fancy hand flipping trickery.

 

 

Kristin, Alex and Lisa.

 

 

The Skate Like a Girl's "Shh...Just let it happen" was hitting the road after skating one more day in Seattle, so Sunday
morning the cars were stacked with supplies.

 

 

Boredom set in while waiting for everyone to gather, so Jessie decided to give Ashley and atomic wedgie to kill some time...

 

 

...and ended up with a cracked screen in the process.

 

 

Once everyone was finally loaded up we drove just outside of town to a fun little park.

 

 

A little something for everyone.

 

 

Then Kristin took us to her secret bank spot.

 

 

Ashley managed to roll her ankle less than 24 hours before leaving on a 2 week skate trip.  Thumps up!

 

 

Next it was off to Kristin's parents house where we were greeted with a "Welcome 2009 S.L.A.G. Tour.  GOOD LUCK!" sign
and a delicious spaghetti feast complete with dessert.  After everyone was stuff we watched footage before saying our
goodbyes.

Thanks to Nancy Chang, Skate Like a Girl, Kristin and the Ebeling family for the great weekend!
