Jessie Van Roechoudt #3.
"There were one or two other girl skaters I would see occasionally, but they were from other towns, so I didn't skate with them much. I only skated with my friend Dan for the longest time. I lived about 30 minutes from the nearest skate spot, so we would just do flatground tricks in the dirt until I got my driver's license. By the time I was driving I could skate as well as most of the people who were hassling me. Also at that time ('94 or so) vibing people was cool, so I didn't feel I was being given a harder time than anybody else."
