Wait! Who's this young hot-shot?!!


Burnout: She Shreds!

Yep, it's Klein. Total chance encounter. 'Why is it so crowded down here?' he asked, 'Don't these people have jobs?'


Burnout: She Shreds!
On deck of the VDI - heavy duty!


Burnout: She Shreds!
A flood of familiar faces.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Line-up already looking heavy.


Burnout: She Shreds!

Burnout: She Shreds!
'What do you mean I gotta get off?'

Lizzie, always time for the fans ... and the droids.


Burnout: She Shreds!

Burnout: She Shreds!
Fuck yo C3PO!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Deadbeat Grant, handbag struttin'.

OG girl skater, Gale Webb. Future's so bright ...

Poppy Olsen, all the way from Oz,


Burnout: She Shreds!
and Nicole Hause and Brittany Conrad, rippers all. Nice to meet y'all.


Burnout: She Shreds!
But enough meet 'n' greet, there's air to be caught!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Shredding back lip.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Leining into it.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Hard to keep track of what constitutes a camera these days, right?


Burnout: She Shreds!
Poppy blasting!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Drecht!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Hause fires the first shot in the high-air wars. Must be her love of gangster rap.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Rothmeyer is definitely qualified to judge Girls' Bowl. He used to get beat by Lori Rigsbee in CASL all the time.


Burnout: She Shreds!
'Ahh .. I don't know ...'

Burnout: She Shreds!

Fuck it, ya know?


Burnout: She Shreds!
The Dagger-style badass of the event was defintiely Julz Lynn, blowing minds with her Duane Peters-inspired approach!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Boom!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Photogs better stand back when this bad babe comes charging through!!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Hip blasts ...


Burnout: She Shreds!
Look at those arms! Goddammit I wish the 80s Alva team was still around. She'd look so cool in that lineup!

Burnout: She Shreds!

Burnout: She Shreds!

Speaking of ...


Burnout: She Shreds!
Ed and Co, always within a stone's throw of the pier.

Burnout: She Shreds!
Meanwhile, back in the bowl: Kiwi spine time.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Front blunt on the drop.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Deep shallow, shallow deep.


Burnout: She Shreds!

Wow!


Burnout: She Shreds!
The crowd was going bananas, as is their style.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Burnout: She Shreds!
Finally, a safe place for my telephone.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Ok, enough of that. Sorry.

Burnout: She Shreds!
Finals time!

Burnout: She Shreds!
Kisa Nakamura - sneak attack all the way from Japan!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Lizzie blast off!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Nora is super sick.


Burnout: She Shreds!
These photos don't really show it, but trust me.


Burnout: She Shreds!
FF to tail!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Crail attack!
Burnout: She Shreds!
In the end it was sorta down to Lizzie, Julz and Alana (who did a backside melon to fakie over the spine - not shown, among other big maneuvers.)


Burnout: She Shreds!
Cracked egg in the closing seconds.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Burnout: She Shreds!
Third place for Julz. The HB crowd was definitely feelin' her!


Burnout: She Shreds!
Disbelief.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Gradual acceptance.


Burnout: She Shreds!
Alana got second. Stoked!

Burnout: She Shreds!
Congrats Lizzie, and all the skaters! Super cool event.

Burnout: She Shreds!
'Maybe we should name the baby Lizzie?'
