“Got kitesurfing on the mind, mixed with some search & classification tech, and a dab of political ranting”

3 year old skateboard ripper!!!

Posted by direwolff on September 10, 2006

You’re seeing it here first, this is 3 year old Hailey ripping it up on the skateboard ramps in Marin. Gabe, one of my dear kitesurfing buddies, has just started getting his daughter into skateboarding. As any new father knows, while it’s great to enjoy those early years of your kids, you really can’t wait until they can start doing activities that you can do with them. Well, Gabe was getting antsy on this point and decided to see how Hailey would take to skateboarding which is one of his passions. Well, as you can see by the picture above, she has taken to it quite well. What you don’t see in this picture is that she actually was able to ride in both directions and was getting the full support of other skaters who got her riding with them as well. She’s showing prodigy style and with the encouragement all around her, she’s already one to watch. I remember watching snowboard videos of Shaun White at 7 years old where he was already throwing bigger tricks than me, so all I have to say is “Shaun, lookout ’cause here comes Hailey!” :-)
