Skateboarding unicorn Lizzie Armanto joins Kelley to talk about her uncharted path through the world of professional skating. Lizzie discusses the importance of skate park culture to her early education in the sport, why an injury of all things was what convinced her to go pro, the lack of an obvious blueprint and professional role models at the start of her career, how she ended up on Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse team, landing on the cover of Thrasher the same day she got a pro model, why she’s optimistic about the sport’s inclusion in the Olympics, and the story of how she became the first woman to complete the infamous 360 loop.
