And you thought you couldn’t?
Rider: Amy Purdy.
For all those girls who get nervous at the time of skate because are the only girl on the place, please, check out this video. Might help. It’s a documentary by Alex White (a former pro-skateboarder) about female skateboarders. Great stuff.…
Ps: Some guys don’t like it but the majority will actually be pretty stoked to see a girl riding, If anything negative is said to you, just take it on the chin; ignore it. You aren’t going to improve if you don’t practice….so get out there and show that GIRLS CAN SKATE!
“One of the most inspiring photos and people in my book….enjoy the visual….Amy Purdy is a survivor of Viral Meningitis and lost both her legs at a young age. She now teaches soldiers how to process forward who have to deal some form of amputation…….She is a true hero in my eyes……” -Nikki Sixx
I am a huge believer in the power of action. We can sit around all day and hope, dream and wish but you won’t get any closer to where you want to be until you get moving! Even if you arn’t moving exactly in the direction you want, at least your moving! Like attracts like! - Amy Purdy
Element Skateboards advocate Amy Purdy is a skateboarder, snowboarder, actress and founder of Adaptive Action Sports but what makes her story so incredible is that she has been through hardships that most of us will never face — or can even fathom. She lived a “normal” childhood before tragically losing her legs at age 19. She was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.
