As skateboarding makes its historical debut in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, we are calling for NBC Sports to hire skateboarding legend Alex White to provide commentary for the women's broadcasts. As skateboarders, we believe that nobody is more well-equipped and deserving of this important role. Alex is a ripping skater who entered the scene at early age when female skateboarders were scarce. In following years, she proved herself as a leader in making the sport more accessible to girls and women worldwide. She has the talent, insider knowledge and perfect timing to reflect our sport in the greatest, most authentic way possible as it debuts on the world stage.
Rip Ride Rager, LC Style
When you're in Lincoln City, expect to go big. Drink 10 beers and then drop in on a 12 foot concrete bowl? Sure! Fall asleep next to a bonfire on the beach and wake up early morning having burrowed your own hole in the sand to stay warm? Duh. Meet some cougars and drink all the alcohol at their husband's mansion with a guy named Captain Booyah? Just another Tuesday in LC.
LISTEN TO KRISTIN EBELING
Kristin, KEBS, Ebelinger, Kebeling, whatever you call her, KEBelinger is not only a sick skater, she's a legit-ass human (def not a cyborg.) At only 21, she starred on an episode of MTV's "True Life; I'm Going to Skatopia," one of the mainstream's first glimpses of this loco femme skate lyfe.
GIZMO World Premier
Elissa had us rolling at Wheels of Fortune 9, when she bestowed us the term "Cupcaking." Since then, it's apparent she has been a real busy bee; less time to "cupcake" her girlfriend, more spent skating, surf, travel and general Gnarhunting. With a surprise Baker Board and Nike's first all-women skateboarding video dedicated to her, she has been entertaining the kind of respect she has always deserved.
.GIF LYFE $$$
If you haven’t heard about what a smash hit our custom instagram stories .gif stickers were at WOFX you must have been hiding under a rock, or making out with one (no judgement.) Word spread fast and before we knew it, we were juggling requests from big brands wanting to trick out their stories too. It dawned on us… maybe giving the world .GIFs can help us launch baby BIGFOOT!

Lessons Learned at WOFX
Wheels of Fortune is a fucking juggernaut. I started going to this event 10 years ago, when it was a small gathering. Just the homies basically; a great excuse to get together, shred, see old friends and test your fate in Seattle's fucked up traffic.
ARE YOU READY FOR WITCH HUNT X???
The stakes are high this year, as teams battle it out to get the #1 edit, voted on at Thrasher.com! The challenges are kept top secret until they are revealed at 11am sharp at Lower Woodland Park in Seattle. Bodies will be put on the line, egos will be crushed, and shame will have no hold on the team that battles their way to the top. Don't miss this one fool!
Monique O’Toole Quit her Day Job, and YOU SHOULD TOO!
I think the film has a way bigger message than the average skate film, one that everyone can learn something from. I think it's incredibly inspiring and shows people that no matter what it is that you love to do, you can always "quit your day job" and make your passion your profession.
