HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATTI MCGEE

Patti McGee5Patti McGee was born August 23, 1945, and won the worlds first ever Woman’s National 1965 Skateboard Championships in Santa Monica, and was also the worlds first ever female professional skateboarder!

Her skating career started early when her brother built her first skateboard in wood shop from her own shoe skate as a surprise where she went on to set the world record for the fastest girl on a skateboard at 47mph during Dick Clark’s World Teen Fair 1964 held at the Orange County fairgrounds in California.

Patti just oozes originality & coolness as can be seen in these old photoographs…

Patti McGee was featured on the cover of Life magazine May 14, 1965 and the cover of the fourth issue of Skateboarder in October 1965 and was the first female to ever be inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame!

Patti, you are a skateboarding legend and we wish you many happy birthdays to come!

For more of Patti, check out this vintage footage!

Saughton Girls Skate Jam TODAY in Scotland!

Something exciting is happening to the skate scene in Edinburgh this afternoon, girls of all ages are stepping on boards an getting their shred on.

20140823-094025.jpg

It wasn’t always this way, the lads at Saughton Skate Park have always been supportive of the girl scene and have tried girl jams in the past with one or two girls appearing.

This year things are different, spring brought a new wave of gnarly girls descending upon Saughton Skate Park making it a perfect arena for the jam on Saturday.

This Jam is a celebration of the scene and of the well loved park. Saughton has something for everyone with its huge bowl, street section and ‘middle earth’.

20140823-094103.jpg

“On the day there will be a Young Guns contest for all the little rippers, Girl Jam, high air contest, round the park race and a general street jam.
We also have the Nike demo team who will be making an appearance for some further shredding.

Finally we have been really lucky with awesome local skate shops, crews and companies giving us some love and donating prizes.

Of course there will also be plenty of music, chilling, stickers and if we are lucky some sunshine!
Come join us on the 23rd of August from 2-5pm and give Saughton and the girl scene some love! “
