Lyn-Z Hawkins in the middle of the first 540 landed by a woman. Pretty amazing.
In a skate, art and music event held in Paris' historic Grand Palais, built for the 1900 Paris Expedition, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins made her own history as the first female to land a 540 on a skateboard. Watch it here.
The event, entitled the Quiksilver Tony Hawk Show, featured photography from Bára Prásilová, live painting by André, music by Dead By Sunrise, DJing with Mix Master Mike and, of course, skating.
To close up the skate event, after Tony Hawk landed another highly- demanded 900, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins put down the first documented 540 landed by a woman. Check back soon for an interview with Lyn-Z.
DVS recently released the second installment of a two part shoe series collaboration with LRG and veteran pro Chico Brenes. In celebration of the shoe’s release, the two brands got together and through Chico a little party at LA’s infamous Cha Cha Lounge. As the unofficial Max Fish of LA, the Cha Cha is the favorite drinking destination for skateboarders all over the Los Angles area. This past Thursday night was no exception as pro skaters from all over the city packed out the tiny bar and guzzled down hundreds of free Tecates. Dudes got rowdy and ladies got loose as DJ AKO and ATIBA (AKA The BlackOuts) pumped out the jams all night long. Check out the photos to see everything that went down.
