For this months article I have interviewed a young female skater – Izzy. Why did you start skateboarding? I started skating because every time I met up with my boyfriend Felix he always had his board with him, I used to watch him skate and it looked really fun cruising around through everything. I got a Penny board for Christmas and Felix helped me learn some tricks. Why do you like skating? I like skating because when I do it I feel happy and free to ride anywhere I want. At the end of every session I feel like I have accomplished something, like a new trick or move. Basically I love skating because to me its a big joyride. When did you start skating? I started in January 2013 on a Penny board, but when I was 7 I rode my first board‌ so I guess I really started when I was 7.

What type of boards do you have? I have a purple Penny board for cruising and a trick deck for other stuff. I understand you like photography, does the skateboarding help with your creativity? If so how? Yes I do think it helps my creativity, mainly because I get random images in my head, I then incorporate these ideas into projects which results in a final image. Where is your favourite place to skate? Where would you like to skate? If I am on my Penny board I prefer to cruise, so I really enjoy the sidewalk down at Gyllngvase Beach. If I am on my trick deck I really like the car park down at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth or the road behind Swanpool Lake. I would love to start skating at Mount Hawke Skate Park, and cruise down one of the roads towards the Lizard.
