Tony Hawk and his Birdhouse team dropped in on the NASS action sports festival, in Somerset, in their first visit to the UK since 2008. Lizzie exuded style, grace and a whole lot of skill on the NASS Vert ramp alongside the boys, team mate Tony said…

“I think it’s about time that we saw a healthy ratio of female to male skateboarding, it was for whatever reason considered a male dominated sport for a long time and there were always a few girls in the mix… but now that has exploded. I think it’s in large part of the girls who are ripping today, like Lizzie who’s here. She shows that it’s not about being good for girls, it’s about being good.”
