"As time moves on, skateboarding continues to progress and grow. As more and more skate parks pop up, the array of participants expands. In 2013, it seems that women's skateboarding is pushing forward. With the addition of Real Women to ESPN's Real Street series, the girls have been given an opportunity to showcase their skills outside of their contest runs.

Leticia Bufoni is one of the women who is helping to raise the bar of what women can and should be doing. Taking a moment during her travels in between X Games, Bufoni spoke with us about her thoughts on the new international stops of X Games and much more."

Laura Thornhill - Hall of Fame 2013

Congratulations to 70's Pro Laura Thornhill for being inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame tonight!

 

"One of those inductee’s is a girl from the 70′s who was a fashion icon, a girl who skated like the wind and had the grace and style to make you stop and look, and look again. She spun 360 after 360 while the boys watched in awe, she rode before it was the “popular” thing to do, she practiced freestyle routines in the hot summer sun, she traveled with the boys from contest to contest up and down the coast of Southern California instead of going to prom, shopping at the mall or any other of those other “popular” girl activities. If you are a girl and skate now, she is one of the women who paved the way for you. She is a girl I am very proud to call my good friend." - Cindy Whitehead via itsnotaboutpretty.com

Now skating for only Emerica, ERGO and Yeah Board Shop, she is getting ready for one of the most important days of her fiscal year, X-Games."
