Firstly, apologies for the delay in posting these rider profiles! A minor appendectomy has set me back a week but I’m back in business and the first of our Rider Profiles from Days Like These from none other than Camilla Mullins sets us off!

Yes, this has been the first full video part I have worked on. Generally in the past I have filmed mini parts or just communal sections etc.
Having grown up in a small town in Italy I was generally the only girl around there who was skating so I never really felt there was a distinction between male and female skaters. Since moving back to the Uk I have found that there are so many rad ladies who shred and it has definitely been inspiring to watch and learn from them. The main difference between skating with guys and girls is that I guess the ladies instil this sense of competitiveness in me that makes me think: ‘Hey – if she can do it then why can’t I?’
I’m looking forward to everyones parts to be honest. All of the girls have such different styles of skating that its always fun to see any of their sessions! Gun to my head though I have to admit I’m quite excited for Julia’s part as she is a shredder and a good friend. I guess I’m also very excited to see what tricks Josie has pulled out of the bag. She is a very strong skater who is developing her own style of skating and has learned to incorporate a lot of originality in her tricks. In my opinion she’s definitely one to keep an eye on!
