OG Skate. Patti McGee.

Friday, September 20, 2013

Patti McGee needs no introduction to most of you. She is an icon in the skateboard world.
Patti paved the way for all of us - because really, how many girls do you think took a chance & skateboarded back in the 1960's?  Not many.

Patti is the first woman to be inducted into the Skateboard Hall of Fame and she is also the only female skater (that I am aware of) to have 2 major magazine covers in one year - Life Magazine & Skateboarder Magazine both in 1965.

But most of all, she is a pretty amazing lady and one I am proud to call a friend. So next time you see her at an event, please make sure to go up and introduce yourself and thank her for her contributions to women's skateboarding.    xx
