MAY GODDESS HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS; It’s the WBATB Final!
The original four headed for the semi-finals were Christiana Means, Sammaria Brevard, Lacey Baker and Candy Jacobs.

So previous challengers Monica Torres and Chelsea Castro staged a "redemption round," with Torres ultimately earning her spot in the final four.

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.

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.
