Jaime was an am for Real in the time before Rookie started. She was also on Gallaz, the girls division of Globe footwear in the early 2000s. Jaime was probably on par with Elissa Steamer in terms of skill and definitely raised the bar for quality women's skateboarding. She got the cover of Thrasher in the early 1990s, too.
In other skateboard happenings, the Manny Santiago part that just went online is pretty damn good. I'm not really feeling a couple of his sponsors, but the kid is coming up with some very complex tricks down rails. Good job, Manny.
There's a new Chrome Ball Incident interview up at Already Been Done with Chico Brenes. He's doing a lot of good things to promote skateboarding in Nicaragua.
