When Elissa Steamer first appeared in Toy Machine's "Welcome To Hell" video in 1996, the whole world took note. The almost exclusive "boys club" rule that skateboarding had held since the 1970's was now gone, and thanks to Elissa, it would never be the same again.

Make some time in your Friday morning to read Elissa's amazing "Crashing The Boys Club" interview over on TWS, where Elissa and Mackenzie Eisenhour discuss her finding her way onto a skateboard, getting hooked up, the Huntington Beach days and more, all of which is accompanied with some classic photos from over the years and each of her video parts.
