Element Camp

 

Lacey, Vanessa and I took a quick trip to the Element YMCA Skate Camp after Maloof.

 

 

Vanessa backside 5-0 in Element Land.

 

 

This place is amazing!

 

 

The girls bodies were beaten and sore from skating the contest.  Lacey's board had given her a shark bite on the back of
her heel which was still cut open and made it painful to skate or even wear shoes, but the new mini ramp made it hard
for her to resist a few runs.

Lacey and her new snail friend.

 

 

This guy was pretty hyped he got Vanessa's signature on his chest.

Alexis Sablone!

 

 

Rachel Reinhard hurt her knee in yesterdays practice, but tried to skate though the pain in today's final which didn't work
out too well.  After the weekend was said and done both Rachel and Lauren Perkins had torn ACL's that will require
surgery.  Get well soon!

Day With The Brazilians

 

We started the day off at the Costa Mesa park where the girls sessioned the hip to get warmed up.

 

 

Anne-Sophie fakie flip.

 

 

Afterwards we went street skating with Leticia's Brazilian friends.  Monica frontboard.

 

 

Anne-Sophie and Felipe had Subway sandwiches that weren't agreeing with their stomachs.

 

 

Everyone had fun skating around and Leticia got a few tricks on video...and Ana Paula filmed her first line since 1984!  Ha!

Maloof Ladies Prelim

 

9 girls competed today for the top 4 spots which advance to the finals where they will compete against the top 4 girls from
last year.  A big surprise was a last minute invite to Alexis Sablone who has been under the radar for the last 4-5 years
while she completed college.  For those of you unfamiliar with Alexis
watch this and you will understand why the exception
was made.

 

 

Amy Caron and Lorena Lima.

 

 

The course.

 

 

Vanessa Torres and Sophie Poppe.  Vanessa is pre-qualified from last year and moves straight to the finals tomorrow.

 


Lauren Perkins tore her ACL and meniscus warming up before the prelims, but still came out to support the rest of the girls.
