Lizzie Armanto is fresh off an X Games gold medal in Barcelona and Boardworld just released this video about her. If you’re not paying attention there is a new resurgence of women skating with Lizzie leading the pack of new generation of shredders.
There should be more opportunities for women to excel and make a living through skateboarding. With few contests, little exposure in the media and even less companies offering sponsorship being a female skater is a tough path to choose.
Lizzie doesn’t let any of that stop her from tearing it up. With long grinds, perfect inverts, stylish airs and flowing lines she annihilates pools like the Vans Combi. I’m a big fan, give her a follow on twitter to keep up!
