My Tube with Amy Ram - Top 5 Internet clips
Our latest My Tube candidate is one of London's most proactive skaters, heavy on the Instagram and equally at home of the football field as she on the streets. Let our very own Amy Ram give you the inside scoop on who's hyping her up pre-session right about now, then go get involved yourselves.
"Nora Vasconcellos - The human you love to just love and my favourite female transition skater of all time and with a supersonic personality to match. (I’ve never met her but I am sure we would become soul mates). How I accidentally listened to her 1 hour The Nine Club podcast twice I’m not sure. But yeah we all know it, she fucking smashes it."
"Una Farrar aka @lil_tubsy on Instagram. This spring chicken has got the brightest future ahead, (no pressure). She’s my one to watch. The most Swedish looking Canadian you will ever meet and has determination and commitment like I’ve never seen before. She’s got all the flare I look for when watching female skaters and has a creative approach to add to it. If I would do anything today I would click that blue follow button on her Insta page and see what you’ve been missing out on. The future is bright (/ginger), the future is Una."
"Daryl Dominguez AKA Double D has always inspired me since the first day I met him. Such an incredible, excitable character with constant stories about his adventures skate related or not, (mostly skate related). I’m glued to my screen when I watch his clips and on the real, I get left dribbling - *does that sound weird?"
The Skate Witches - SRSLY - arguably my most overused word this year: Includes all my favourite skaters that I’ve been so blessed with meeting over the last few years. SRSLY is a new video part by the Skate Witches which is about to drop hopefully very soon. Good things comes to those who wait and this is worth waiting for. You get the gist of how SRS this video will be from the trailer, it’s so SRS that all the best female skaters in the world feature and it simply goes to show how great The Skate Witches actually are. Big up yourself Shari and Kristin (I'll translate to the American folk - well done girls). Big love.
P.S anyone who is someone has a skate witches tattoo ;)
Jordan Thackeray - Now I'm not sure if anyone has noticed - god forbid not, but if I was to form into any skater my choice would hands down be Jordan Thackeray. This kid has magical foot skills, which I want. He also joined the most legit British board family out there and also not to mention him also being one of the most polite and lovely skate creatures out ripping the scene. I could watch this kid skate all day/all night.
