Alana Smith is shaking the skateboarding industry and sending the boys scurrying. "How does she make it all look so easy", they think, while slamming their boards on the ground with frustration. All I can say is "HELLZ YES!!" Can I get an AMEN? GROWSK8LIFE has not interviewed this little legend but I assure you she is at the top of our list. We really want to say thank you little mama, thank you for kicking butt and taking names. We are all behind you, cheering for you, loving you, and learning from your perseverance.
For those of you wondering what all the fuss is about, let me clue you in. Ms. Alana Smith gained entrance into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest athlete to win a medal in the X Games. What amazing trick did she do to win the Silver Medal in Barcelona? Oh, only a 540 McTwist. I remember being very young when I first saw Mike McGill, for whom the trick is named after, land the first ever McTwist.
