West Coastin’ 1rst Report

Daddies Board Shop & Longboard Girls Crew presents:
West Coastin’
The Journey to the first Maryhill She-ride.

1rst Rider Report by Marisa Nuñez

It all started in Santa Monica, California, where the 5 of us girls, Pam Diaz, Ishtar Backlund, Amanda Powell, Daisy Johannes, and myself, Marisa Nunez, were gathered together for a 2 week “vacation” from the IGSA races. We would get together to skate and hang out everyday.

Image

Amanda was nice enough to have us stay at her rad apartment and show us around her streets. We went out filming in Laguna one day with the Yuppie family and the Abec 11 crew. It was such a blessing to see all the Yuppies together shredding hard and giving their all for the camera. The girls and I might have our own little part in their video too, which we´re extra stoked about!

The idea of a documented skate trip to the She-ride came about quite spontaneously and we got to work right away. We went out for a film session on Venice Beach and got everything we needed for our trailer. Pam knew exactly what she wanted, and directed us in front of the camera like a boss-woman. It was inspirationally rad. We skated all day and watched the sunset on Venice as we discussed plans for our trip. The next day, Amanda and I had to go to a shoot in Hollywood for a commercial that we are skating in. We´re really stoked on this because we´ll be able to get our style of skating and our sponsor´s products on national television. Hooray for Longboard Girls Crew´s Youtube videos inspiring Hollywood for commercial media! This is epic.

In the meantime, Ishtar, Daisy and Pam were hard at work at the local coffee shop getting all the emails out to potential sponsors for our trip.These girls are some serious go-getters, they could rule the world if they wanted to… seriously. That night, Pam stayed up until 4 in the morning putting together the sponsorship package presentation, and the following night, she stayed up until 7 in the morning putting together the trailer video. In only a couple of days we were able to put together a sponsorship package presentation, filmed and edited a trailer video, and got in touch with everyone that we needed to.

Goes to show, that will power and wanting something bad enough could bring you anything you work on.

The countdown is at T-minus 2 days until we get the show on the road, destination: Maryhill She-ride. We are 5 girls and will be traveling, skating, filming and editing these videos all ourselves.

Stay tuned and get ready ladies, we´ll see you there!

This is our experience out at maryhill… just a little part though!

Team rider Ishtar Backlund kicking it with Ambassadors Eric Hoang and Richard Topete

So Maryhill has come around again! This year got very very rowdy and very out of control. I am glad we got to be a part of it. Check out some of the photos from the event. We ran around, camera-happy, and got a bunch of great shots for you to enjoy!

Team Rider Amanda Powell hanging out with shop employee/gangster Jesse Stuart

We were slanging all sorts of goodies up there. If you weren’t there to get in on our awesome deals and mayhem then you were missing out! Abec 11′s and Landyachtz Biggie Hawgs were flying off the shelves!

Patrick Switzer getting crazy-faced! Love this dude.

Patrick Switzer went on to win the event and it was a huge win for Rayne longboards as well. Patrick was on a sweet prototype slalom deck and absolutely killed it!

The homie James Kelly… you may know him as the American Dream!

Daddies riders! The beautiful Marisa Nunez and Alex “The Fiercest” Tongue!

Bricin “Striker” Lyons! … And Rebekka Gemperle… what a babe!

Camping like a boss!

Camping out in a good location is KEY if you want to avoid some of the skater’s campsite mayhem… We avoided it until the final night in the maryhill state park! it was great!

Camping in the makeshift tent… awesome!

Tad Drysdale!

Loaded and Orangatang’s Kyle Chin!

This is the man that is responsible for quite a bit of the Loaded and Orangatang videos and product that you all love!  Kyle CHIN!

Douglas Dalua!!! Love this dude too… such a gnarly rider!

Douglas Dalua is loved by everyone! He set a new track record on his rayne and abec 11 wheels! He has a new wheel sponsor but he was still on abec 11′s!

Team Rider Pam Diaz with Aaron from the block!

The coolest cornering steez out there…

Bustin Longboards’ Soloman Lang! King Soloman!

Push Culture covering me, me instagramming them, and then me documenting instagram… inception? Thanks Travis!

Alex Tongue Butt-Boarding for King of the Hill!

It started raining pretty heavily during the King Of The Hill race between the top 6 qualifiers. Everyone was butt-boarding except for James Kelly who decided to stand up after he started. James ended up winning king of the hill for his second year in a row! Go James! AMERICAN DREAM!

Jesse Stuart and Pete Benda running the show.

Our Homie Scott from One 11 longboards!

Alexa got us a lot of attention, everyone had a crush on her!

My buddy Daniel Figueroa all the way up from Mexico! Good to see him again this year!

Venom founder Zak Maytum singing the national anthem!

Zak belted it out for the national anthem. Who knew that the dude who created Venom wheels and bushings, and who also rides for madrid would be killing the national anthem. I’ve seen him sing it before though haha… good work Zak!

Mischo Erban, Bricin Striker Lyons, and Patrick Switzer singing the canadian national anthem for Canada Day… whatever that is haha.

Alex Tongue had the 3rd fastest qualifying time!

K-Rimes flying down with Zen Shikaze! Both insanely rad dudes.

Alexa and Jesse Kicking it like the Karate Kid.

Our good friend Ayumi Oride all the way form Japan!

Byron Essert with some mad eagle steez!

Those comet leg patches are sick… but Byron was definitely riding a Rayne Killswitch… I think his board was out of commission. I saw him carrying around his beloved chopped Comet Takeover.

The juniors skating tight!
