Great tom see this article in Sports Illustrated about the Women's Park and Street events at X-Games Austin.
It talks about the younger girls being the wave of the future in skateboarding - Pamela Rosa, Mariah Duran, Kisa Nakamura, Jordyn Barratt, and Brighton Zeuner.
"Sixteen-year-old Pamela Rosa established herself as a star. The Brazil native—who comes from an impoverished background—won gold at X Games Oslo three months ago then won the street comp this weekend. Nineteen-year-old Mariah Duran out of New Mexico ended with silver. In the Park competition, Japanese native Kisa Nakamura, also 16, grabbed her first gold. Jordyn Barratt, from Encinitas, Calif., who won bronze, is just 17. Meanwhile Brighton Zeuner, also from Encinitas, finished fourth and is only 11. The future of women’s skating is definitely in capable hands for the foreseeable future."
