These ladies are killing it and pushing skateboarding forward for women year after year. I've got a few photos and sequences here from the weekend. Congrats Lacey Baker for winning it this year at X Games Austin Womens.

Everyone stop skating for a second so Ryan and I can put our babies on blast right quick. That's Ryan's daughter Sloane and my son Alvis. We brought the family out on this one since it's an extra long trip between two adidas Skate Copa events we're also running.
