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.
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.
A great moment was when last year's champ Nicole Hause rolled in, fashionably late to the party because she didn't have to qualify. She was rocking rad checkered party pants that were a huge hit, and was just blasting gigantic airs. Fucking classy shit. She was doing just what last year's champ should; showcasing her skill for the crowd. Not necessarily skating to win but to dazzle, and dazzle she did.
Alex White for Olympic Commentator Petition
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.
