We are stoked to welcome 10 yr old east coast ripper Zoe Herishen to the Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word team! We have been watching this young girl progress for quite sometime, and love that she not only is a killer skateboarder, but that she also gets involved in planning skate events like the Chico de Mayo skate day she threw to help benefit GRO (Girls Riders Organization).
Zoe has been featured in photographer Christin Rose's photo project, #ShePlaysWeWin and in the rad campaign for Natalie Westling x Vans for Opening Ceremony. Zoe just spent two weeks in California this summer where she competed at Exposure Skate, and then hit parks all over Southern California skating bowls with her West Coast friends.
Check out her team bio at the top of the site, to see what else this young ripper has been up to lately!
We are stoked to have you on the team Zoe!
