Leticia Bufoni is just one of the few female skaters; including fellow Brazilians Jessica Florencio, Eliana Sosco, American Amelia Brodka, Allysha Bergado and Lizzie Armanto; who’s goal is to make women's skating relevant in the ever-growing action sports landscape. In November 2011; in a special issue on the ESPN blog, Leticia Bufoni was described has having a “deep arsenal of moves, aggressive style and marketability”. Marketability is the magic word there… ESPN even goes a step further by saying that of all the girl’s skaters,

it's Bufoni who's most likely to usher the sport into the mainstream.” Since she first appear in skateboarding, she's snagged X Games silver and bronze in Street. In 2010, she won the Maloof Money Cup and its $25,000 prize. Last year, she also ranked No. 1 in Ladies World Street by World Cup Skateboarding, the sport's global body.

Elissa Steamer, a four-time X Games Street gold winner says that "She's got the talent and the attitude to be a huge force in our sport."

If you don’t know yet Leticia Bufoni, the Brazilian magazine CemporcentoSKATE has a new video interview with her.
