This weeks featured skater is Charlotte Heath I first met Charlotte when she was just starting out at Balnarring she had just learnt to drop into the bowl and was trying to kick turn her way around the bowl I suggested she loosen her trucks and bingo she was pumping and carving in no time flat. Charlotte is a fearless young skater, who, when not sleeping is probably thinking about where to skate next. I’m sure many of you have had the pleasure of seeing Charlotte shredding her way around a bowl and will agree that she is a young girl having fun and pushing the limits.
Charlotte Thanks for your time

A:It was late the night before the Vps continental try outs, and Dad took me to Mona Vale ramp, the ramp was empty and I had a session with Pedro and his Brazilian gang. They didn’t speak a lot of English but gave off a super cool vibe to skate with.Then later at the Stein Bistro they had a mini ramp set up for the inside, so I got to skate with so many legends, this was all set up for the week of the Vans Park Series
I’m so lucky my Parent’s bought a van, so we can sleep anywhere we like for free, and travel around Oz and meet up with crew I’ve met through competing.
