On Wesnesday, Skatie Katie hit the local hills of Lima, Peru to host a ladies ride clinic with fellow Daddies teammate, Marisa Nunez. The local girls are steadily growing in numbers and while they are progressing fine on their own, it was a great time for them to get some techniques demonstrated by the top female rider in the World. After a 15 or 20 minute sit down where the girls went over safety and decision making...Katie hit the pavement full tilt demonstrating high speed Coleman slides, heel side and toe side pre-drifts, stand up slides and a lesson on exactly what hitting the apex means. The girls walked away with a mass variety of prizes and a new stoke for what is possible on board!!! What a day!!!The Eh team has been charging hard in South America...Keep an eye out for more info from them on our Facebook page.
"I personally think girls tend to ‘sugar coat’ things to media and avoid exposing some problems. It is important for us to voice our thoughts, and I applaud Cassie Sharpe in particular for being the callout queen and exposing some of the flaws in freeski media. We need more of that."
