As a young adult, there is a short window of time in life when most people can get away with being a true skate rat. Old enough to get a car, put some gas in it and point it in the direction of the sickest nearby session. If you’re good at skating, with a little luck and creativity you might be able to extend this magical time – like the late, great Jeff Grosso – RIP in peace.
Kristy is currently exemplifying these glorious years. Recently, she spent a couple of them shredding Portland’s legendary Burnside skatepark. Now, she’s back in Southern California, hitting up the hot spots and just living her damn LYFE! She just fucking loves to skate. And all the rest of us get to live vicariously. If you are younger, look up to her example. If you are older, close your eyes, forget about your job, kids and all the other lame adult shit and pretend you are her. It’s the latest and greatest health & wellness fad for aging skaters. Transcendental skate rat meditation. 🛹🐭🧘♀️
