It was a super exciting day in Filmore today with the opening of their first skate park. I was totally blown away at how many people from old to young were at the event skating the bowls, watching and supporting fellow skaters. Pros such as Sean Edwards, Michael Early, and Jeff Tatum were demonstrating their skills for the crowd. One of my new favorite old school skaters, Brad Edwards, was dominating on his longboard skateboard. It completely made me want to learn how to ride skateboards. So skilled, smooth and stylish. To top it off, legendary skater, Tony Alva, was there not only skating but singing in his band G.F.P.
Pro Surfer Mary Osborne started surfing at the age of 14. As the youngest of four, and the only girl, Mary's older brothers have had a huge influence on her surfing ability. Her three brothers are all extremely talented surfers and keeping up with them has obviously rubbed off on her. As a contest surfer Osborne rides a longboard, but as a free surfer she'll ride anything...and ride it well. Mary started surfing around the same time local surf shop owner, and former pro surfer, David Pu’u began pursuing a new career as a photographer. The two started working together and began creating beautiful modeling and surfing images and, as a result, Mary began pursuing her career as a professional surfer.
