TRANSWORLD interview Meow Skateboards pro rider Lacey Baker on what it was like growing up as a female in a male dominated sport, quitting her day job and the struggle to live off of her contest winnings, most recently Street League 2016.

Read the full interview here…

“…the difference between men and women—men are just biologically stronger than us, so they can take harder slams and jump higher and do more shit like that. But the ability to understand skateboarding and the physics of it doesn’t really change.                                             I feel like if I was a dude, or had the body that could take a slam like that, I would probably be doing gnarlier shit. As far as working hard and skating every day, we don’t do anything different than the guys do. They just do gnarlier shit.” – Lacey Baker
