Hyper Cheetah – Exploring the Beauty of Bangkok

I’m a Hyper Cheetah fan.  Catching up with her I see that she’s exploring the beauty of Bangkok.  While some people may question city skateboarding, I think it’s the perfect way to see everything.

What cities have you explored with your skateboard?

To see more of Hyper Cheetah check out her IG where she’s currently sharing

Till next time keep it stylish on & off the board.


Hyper Cheetah is Learning More Freestyle

@cheetahzita is learning more freestyle – I love how she smiles as she’s learning.  It’s no wonder I’ve blogged about her before and that she’s featured in commercials. Her smile and her skating is pure style.

Above she’s at Amphoe Muang Chant, Chai Nat, Thailand and below at an event in Mohinkao DH

What new things are you committed to learning this new year?  It’s always the right time to try something you’ve wanted to try.

Never be afraid of being a beginner.  We all start as beginners!

Hope you share soon because more girls skateboard when they see stylish girls having fun skating and they have friends to skate with!


Skateboarders Are Fierce – Especially the Girls

My friend cheetahzita, who I met when I first started blogged has released a film.  Fierce!

Above a behind the scenes look of her film.  Below her summary:

This is a longboard project with a filmmaker & longboard shop in Thailand.  It’s a short lifestyle documentary of a longboard girl, free runner &  dancer.  My part is passion for longboarding and showing girls can downhill longboard.  The project’s name is “Fierce” supported by Volcom & Emerica brands from NY.LA shop in Thailand  My video will open at every NY.LA shop in Thailand

Productions was amazing it’s the first time I went downhill with a drone camera.   During production I had an accident on a steep hill,  my chin and left shoulder were hurt, but I’m okay and it was still fantastic & fun.   

It’s such a beautiful video on Vimeo production by Wise Lama Filmmaker – hope you check the video on Wise Lama Channels.

Sliding in Thailand

slide 180

Cheetahzita doing a sit-down slide 180.  Sliding is the most effective braking technique for downhill skateboarders – or so says Google. 

I went out with Arbor Girl friends last Sunday.  After hitting a few parks – which I call home – we went to a hill.  They called it a hill – mountain is what I’d call it.  I had the borrowed gloves on and a loaner down hill skateboard by my side – but the idea of trying on a “hill” with a guardrail and cacti to land in – NO NO!

I gotta keep it fun – so I’m going to try sliding on flat land.  I know that’s not the end goal – I want to celebrate the process and work my way up the hill.  I’m totally intrigued by the gloves but it’s all so new & different from how I’m used to skating.

So here’s a big shout out to all my friends who are already going down hill – “masters of squat” is what they are.  And a reminder that your real friends will encourage you to try new things – not force you!

Encouragement is stylish on & off the board – peer pressure and bullying are never stylish.  So grateful to have supportive friends that will help me learn downhill skateboarding “safely” – like is there even such a thing as downhill skateboarding “safely”?  Okay help me learn downhill skateboarding with confidence!
