Hello my lovely followers!
Today I'm here to talk about Patti McGee.
Patti McGee was 19 when she became the first professional female skateboarder in history.
She started out as a surfer and when there was no where to surf her and her friends would go find a hill to skateboard.
I find Patti such an interesting and wonderful woman for her courage and strength and no fear for doing something different. It was a very big thing being a female skateboarder and she is for sure a role model and ultimate bad ass.
Did I mention she made the cover of life magazine? Yep.

I truly adore this woman and am so happy I found out about her (first discovered her in my Tomboy Style book I got for my birthday).
Reading up on her makes me excited for the summer for longboarding and finally getting my board!
Do you have any inspiring women you adore?
