BTW, in one of her old post on Facebook, in 2010, she wrote: “I have skated the Combi Pool 3.0 so many times since it opened, and I am still drawn to skate it again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and AGAIN!”. (Original emphasis) No wonder the Vans combi-pool was Allysha’s first choice for the interview!
ISTIA - Do you skate a lot at Vans? Allysha Bergado: - Yes. I try to come up here every week, but when they redid the pool I could not come here because I could not skate the pool. All you could skate was the mini-ramp and the street, so because of that I mostly went to The Cove Skatepark. But now I will come here again because they redid the pool.
ISTIA - I saw a lot of pictures of you with Christian Hosoi, Lester Kasai, Lonny Hiramoto, Lance Mountain, etc… those guys are considered masters. How is it to regularly skate with masters? Allysha Bergado: - I think it’s pretty cool. It’s really cool to get to know those guys because they are amazing people who happen to be very talented skaters; and they are very inspirational. You get the chance to learn tricks from them and that is very cool.
ISTIA - Do they teach you? Allysha Bergado: - Yes, when I ask them, they show me how; like they try to help me out when I’m trying to learn a new trick.
ISTIA - With whom do you skate most? Allysha Bergado: - I have been skating a lot with Tony Mag who has been my mentor. And I love having the chance to skate with the Pros when they come out to skate and practice for Pro-Tec. Also, whenever I see some of the girl skaters, I try to hang out with them because I don’t see a lot of girls skaters out there.
ISTIA - Who got you into skateboarding? Allysha Bergado: - My dad and my uncle. When I was six, I saw them in front of my house and they were riding on their own skateboards. It looked kinda fun to me and on my following birthday I asked for a skateboard, so they got me one and from then, I just started skating.
