Leticia Bufoni Speaks Out.

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Great article in Rolling Stone. Pro skateboarder Leticia Bufoni speaks out about everything from her decision to pose for the ESPN Body Issue, to why she doesn't have a board sponsor, and how she feels about the haters that come with being a top ranked skater.

Here's a sneak peek of just one of Leticia's quotes from the article

"But some things still have to change. I don't have a board sponsor because most of the big skateboard companies will not sponsor girls. Some of the big brands we met with actually told us that they don't want any girls on their skate teams. It's hard, because I can only get a "flow" sponsorship, which means I ride in exchange for free boards, while the company makes money using my name. I'm not doing that. I would rather ride for myself. I have my own blank boards with my own future company called Yeah Yeah Skateboards. Paul Schmitt makes my boards and they are perfect."

Why Can't My Girlfriend Skate?

Art by Carly Bizama

Carly Bizama, aka "Gnarly Carly" has done it again with her rad skateboard related art. We've seen the pieces (for years), where the girl is crying and wishing her boyfriend was cool & knew how skate, but this new rad piece by Carly twists that archaic idea 180 degrees. We love that! Good going Carly!!
