Lizzie at Gonzo’s

Lizzie Armanto
Lizzie at Gonzo’s

Yesterday, I spent the day with Lizzie Armanto. I wanted to do a special with Lizzie and Allysha together, but Allysha is at Woodward until Saturday so that sesh had to be been postponed. Lizzie Armanto is actually the best bowl rider girl worldwide. No less. She has been ranked #1 at the WCS for two years straight even though she just lost the Combi classic last November to her best buddy Allysha (she landed #2 though). She was also just returning from Boston were she spend Xmas with Nora Vasconcellos, another awesome bowl-vert buddy of her. I wanted to go to Venice and Culver City skateparks to take action shots of Lizzie in the big pools, but a fortunate chain of events made that we finally ended at the infamous Gonzo’s pool and eventually we finished the day at La Cabana, a Mexican restaurant in Santa Monica, because all her trips across the USA took a toll on her health and she was exhausted. We talked a lot. About Ozzie’s reunion at Lance’s, about Julian Bleecker and his Hello Skater Book project, about her desire to take a new direction in her skateboarding and about the strained relations between the media and girls’ skateboarding.
The full interview will soon be published. In the meantime, this is one of Lizzie’ pic of yesterday’s sesh at Gonzo’s.
