Don't mention it Cat.
It is always great to see the girls ripping!
Girls do deserve more attention from the skateboarding media though. Not from a sort of "girls specialized media" but rather from the "normal" skateboarding media. I am pretty much sure that will come one day, but we are not there yet.
