Nice interview with OG skater from the early 70's, Laura Thornhill Caswell, on Lenny.com today. Molly Schiot who just released her book on women's sports titled "Game Changers" conducted the interview and wrote the piece on Laura. We love that it captures Laura's free spirit and shares her stories of what it was like for her skateboarding back in the early years.

When we received a call from The Beach Reporter to see if some skater girls would like to skate the new Manhattan Beach Skatepark, we were all for it. We rounded up a small group of girls and headed over to skate the new park in private before it became open to the public this past Saturday. A private all girls session before a park opens is a rarity. We'd like to thank The Beach Reporter and the City of Manhattan Beach for making this happen.
Skaters are; Kala Fernandez, Stella Reynolds, Vianez Morales, Quinne Daniels, Kyra Williams, Leah Ho, and Minna Stess.
Hop over HERE to read the article and see the video by Daniella Segura from The Beach Reporter and see more photos from the day.

Lizzie Armanto is on FIRE! It was announced minutes ago that Lizzie has become PRO for Birdhouse (they are releasing her own PRO model board - see photo above) and she scored this month's cover of Thrasher Magazine. Pretty epic day and a huge plus for women's skateboarding.
We love all that Lizzie does to help elevate girls skateboarding - this type of news and accomplishment opens the door for so many more female skaters!
