"I'll be damned if we're not out there breakin' our necks just like the guys...we're gettin' burned. How many issues has it been since you've seen a girl's face? About five."—Vicki Vickers, lamenting the poor coverage of female skaters to Skateboarder Magazine.

This is the kind of park I knew and loved. I had those gloves with the rainbow wrist, and a great board. I miss those days.

What a ripper. It was rad when skateboarding was still being influenced by surfing and people were grinding and carving with such smooth style.

@Suepie52 Lucky you to have been a part of such a great era in skateboarding!

I love this. Exactly my type of role model!

I remember this era as was there... and still skate now! Ramps, curbs, you name it. What's stopping people?
