We're not talking Avril Lavigne types here; these women are true professionals, or at least half decent or otherwise notable skateboarders who really love to tackle those big half-pipes. So stand aside Miss Universe and make way for the SCILFs - that's skater chicks I'd like to... you get the rest.
I wish they all could be California girls. Lyn-z may look like a ditzy blond who doesn't know which way round the board goes, but she's not just a pretty face. This prodigy turned pro at 12 and is the first female to skate the mammoth DC Mega Ramp, a feat that has eluded many male pros. She also appeared as a playable character in Tony Hawk's video game series and is the first female to have pulled off a 540 McTwist. And she's only 21.
