Lizzie Armanto Makes History As First Female To Complete The Loop!

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions today with our infamous BBHJ loop. First was terror and pride watching my sons @rileyhawk & @keeganhawk try it, then seeing Riley get as close as humanly possible but slam into the flat at the exit (see his last post). It was unnerving, but he got up quickly. @jeromygreen and @charlieblair01 made it shortly thereafter. As everyone packed up and left, @lizziearmanto put her pads back on and started tying it again. Our live @nextvr event was over, but she was going the distance. Less than an hour later, this happened. It was pure skateboarding passion and talent converging in this milestone moment, making Lizzie the first woman to successfully do a loop. I am thankful that Riley is ok, and that I played a small part in this conquest. Thanks to anyone that watched our event, and special thanks to everyone that stayed to help Lizzie achieve this dream. I’m still buzzing.

This weekend it was amazing, to hear (and see) the news that pro skater Lizzie Armanto had made the loop - something no other female skater has ever done. As you can read in Tony Hawks' post above - this is no easy feat. His son Riley Hawk went down hard, Lizzie did as well - watch the first part of the video. But she stayed past the event ending and kept at it - and MADE IT!

So rad - Congrats Lizzie!!
