Loveletter To LGBTQ+ aka “Queerness in Skateboarding”
This is skateboarding as it should be. It's not about what race you are or who you want to bang. It's about having fun rolling around on a skateboard, being a freak and eating shit. I'm so happy that the tide has finally turned. It feels like the earth's magnetic pull was off axis this whole time and finally, it's back on track. But this time, let's not forget the past. No more beating up on the less celebrated or fortunate. Cause being a fucking dickhead is not cool. Being yourself is.

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.
