8 Female Skaters That Are Better Than You’ll Ever Be

From dropping 540 McTwists to winning multiple X Games gold medals, these ladies would show you up any day

Lizzie Armanto

The Californian bowl skater started out chasing her brother round the park on her board. Five years later, she became the first woman to win gold in park at the X Games 2013.

Now, she’s got legends like Christian Hosoi and Steve Caballero singing her praises. You only need to watch the video above to see that she rips!

Lois Pendlebury

This Brit ledge grew up skating the streets of Bradford and has developed some serious style  – check out that frontside tailslide!

When she’s not competing or skating with mates, she’s organising girls skate comps including the Ladies Skateboard Series

Plus bet you didn’t know she’s also got a first class degree in African Studies. Say wha?!

Marisa is no stranger to taking on giant stair drops and monster gaps. She’s another mental X Games winner with three golds under her belt.

You’ve got to watch her part in Zero’s Strange World – it’s truly rad. Even Transworld Skate were calling it the “raddest” part of the whole film!

Nora Vasconcellos

Watching Nora Vasconcellos skate is like the visual equivalent of eating ice cream. She’s so damn cool and rides harder and higher than most girls in the bowl. Definitely pushing the boundaries for women everywhere.
