We still remember the day we met Emma for the first time. It was at an all girls skate session at The Berrics. A few girls started talking about the possibility of hitting up another spot later that had some vert. Emma and her friends were down with that plan and before we knew it they were inviting all of us to follow them to a spot they knew of in Hollywood. That's the kind of girl Emma is and we think that's pretty rad. If you are at Exposure Skate Contest this Saturday, make sure you tell her "hi" and cheer her on - she will be the girl smiling & ripping.

What do you enjoy most about skateboarding?
Skateboarding saved me. When I started skating, I started to discover myself. I began to learn that I was capable of so many things that I never thought I could do. I would always watch these people and say, “Man, I wish I could do that.” Now, I am doing it. My favorite thing about skateboarding is that it pushes me to try new things and I challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone. Even falling, I like because it reminds me that sometimes, you have to fall in life if you ever want to get anywhere. I am so grateful for all of the amazing people and experiences that skateboarding has brought into my life; I am one lucky lady.
Favorite music to skate to?
Black Sabbath, Black Flag, Beastie Boys, Led Zeppelin, Old School Funk, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Misfits, Dead Kennedys
Girls Who Skate that inspire YOU:
Julz Lynn, Lizzie Armanto, Allysha Bergado, Arianna Carmona, Sarah Thompson, Gaby Ponce, Mimi Knoop, Cassie Oseguera, Melissa Sullivan, Amy Treadway
Favorite place you've ever skated? The Mike Fox skate park in Santa Cruz
Favorite Trick or maneuver? Bean Plants, feebles, backside airs and grinding pool coping is the best feeling.
