8 Female Skaters That Changed History!

Rad women who changed skating for the greater good!


Lyn-Z was never the best girl in grom skate comps, she explains in an interview with Cooler, but she worked hard and went on to become the first female to land a McTwist 540 in a skate comp.

Growing up San Diego meant she was skating alongside Tony Hawk from a young age. Aged 15, she became the first female to skate the DC Mega Ramp and the second youngest to ever win an X-Games gold medal.

What’s rad is she doesn’t limit herself to one discipline. She skates verts, bowl, street and mega ramp – and used to compete in snowboard comps on the side. With eight X-Games medals under her belt, she’s without a doubt one of the best female skaters of all time.
