Wow, that was good,and I'm not saying that in a "good for a girl way". Would be cool to see a rail or two and some gap, but damn that was really enjoyable. Definitely going to have this part on repeat.

That was a very good part by any standard.

Admittedly I always judged Lacey based off of interviews, and not on the actual substance of her skating. Now I can faithfully say I'm a fan of her skating.

I hope meow or whatever the fuck she rides for makes some dough but....really she should get on a bigger brand..and get a shoe deal....

She should def be on equal ground with men skaters based solely on her skating alone.

I understand the industry being run by the powers that be, but at the same time not every woman skater skates with the skill and style we have just seen here in this part. If they had I would suspect the coverage would be more equal, but at the same time its probably going to take someone to actually actively break those barriers for things to be on a level playing field.

If this is how Lacey skates then I can definitely get behind her comments in regards to Leticia.

Shes got tricks off the nose no doubt, but I will never be able to identify with this type of vibe. One time watch. I imagine most of her fans still only see her as good for a girl, but don't want to come across as sexist. Or maybe they just want to smash.

See I feel totally opposite to this.

For me its that I find her style aesthetically pleasing, and akin to what I find appealing in lower impact street skating these days. I also find the trick selection to be tasteful, and beautifully executed.

*Not intending to diminish the skating by using the term "lower impact", but more so to describe the other side of street skating that isn't rail/gap "hammer" skating*

I really like Lacey Baker, shes doing a lot for tha gurl squad but my top3 is gonna be Elissa Steamer, Marissa Dal Santo and maybe Jodie Foster.

What Im trying to explain is that I really support Lacey and she deserves even some Energy Drink sponsor or something whatever like that but shes not the goat to me. I agree with what pals wrote here, some cash to actually film a proper part does amazing things on the visual side of things. Hope this year a bunch of gurls can do street parts as well.  8)

whether it was the low impact/lack of a few stunts or the song or how non traditional girl-y she looks this isn't my favorite part by a lady. which is kind of too bad cause it prolly is the best part by a girl, objectively.
i liked it, just didn't have that sundays song or whatever jenais say quaw, however you spell it. if someone re-edited it to a heavens to betsy song or something it might prolly be my favorite part by a girl.

whoa. okay. that was good.

would have been neat to have released this on saturday, but i dont know if video that get posted on the weekend get the best viewership.

also, do brands/media not like working with her because of her voice and perspective? nice and pleasant is usually more marketable and more agreeable, yielding a larger audience. for example, I find Monica torres okay at skating, but she's cooperative and down to work with larger companies like mountain dew and x games.

this made me question the part a bit. I usually tend to agree with you on most everything - but I don't know. I think maybe shop flow is a possibility - at least in the south east where I live - can't speak to anywhere else.

I just think it's crazy to pretend there isn't a huuuuuuuge physical disparity. I'm all for female skaters, of course I am, but when everyone pretends they're doing the same level of tricks as males I start getting headaches.

the fact that almost everybody else on this thread thought this part was groundbreaking, but you go so far as to say that its unworthy of shop-sponsor suggests otherwise. I've ridden for a few different shops over the years, nothing special, just some friends places, and I never put together a part as technical or difficult as this, and neither have the vast majority of shop sponsored skaters.

I feel like she could have redone a few of those a little better, but maybe it is b roll from Quit Your Day Job. Doesn't have to be Duke of New York A#1. She does what she does well.

How isn't it good for anyone? She better than well over 90% of people that ever skated. Now if you want to narrow " good for anyone "  down to sponsored skaters that's an entirely different story.

Nah.. I loved this part (as evidenced in the previous pages), but you guys who are saying she skated slow are making a legit point.

I just didn't feel the lack of speed diminished the part itself.

Well, ronson is better than me that's for sure (and they both skate slow)!  ;D

Anyway, the part was good, I liked it. Skill wise probably the best female part ever (althrough Marisa strange world still holds my heart as a fav). Lacey landed some impressive stuff honestly and I think the point is not to be as good as a boy. She's just pushing herself to be a better skater and having fun with it.

That was easily the best part I've ever seen from a female skater. Great trick selection and great style. And comparing her to male skaters is silly - in the least sexist way possible, biology is the only thing standing in her way.

Vans/Cons, please go put her on your team.

You know what doesn't matter? Debating if Lacey is worthy of "dude shop flow" because that's not reality. The reality is that Lacey is already pro, has interviews in major magazines, parts on Thrasher, and doesn't need anyone's (mine included) validation.

Lacey fucking rips, end of story.

So many crybaby nay-saying dudes in this thread. Yikes.

why can't you?just for a second?get your head out of your deep, gaping asshole?

any girl who so much as steps foot on a board automatically gets treated like she has to be 20x better than the guy next to her, or else she better not step foot on that board ever again because she's just a waste of space and time. why else do you think so few girls are involved in skateboarding? because of stupid comments like that...

I just don't identify with the lesbian vibe, the same way I don't identify with soft lesbo type music. I'm happy that she has an outlet to do what she does, and I know there is an audience/fan base for her that makes sense. But how many of you guys are seriously into her skating, and how many are just wanting to show their support for feminism. I believe there is a reason shes on a company of all girls. I always liked Elissa because she was able to fit into a company without feeling like a token girl skater(aside from the feminine music in her parts, which i always felt was done very tongue in cheek). Are companies afraid to take a chance on marketing a female nowadays? Or is it that a lot of these females are unmarketable towards men/boys?

How many people knew that BA was gay when they watched Welcome to Hell? Sorry to say, but I'm sure it would have changed his marketability to skaters considerably. Especially teens/youth in that era. He would have also had to wear some more flamboyant shit and skate to something with a more "gay" vibe haha. Just because I don't relate to something doesn't mean I don't think its OK or respectable. I'm not speaking out against this part, it just seems odd to me that so many people are getting such a boner over it. She doesn't even like boners.

You mentioned Mickey papa, not I. Nobody would ever make a topic about him. I wonder if he was a girl with the same tricks, how she'd be treated.

My man.

I looked at it as skateboarding, and it wasn't very good skateboarding. People are giving her special treatment and saying it's amazing only because of her gender. I am not doing that. I don't see gender I see kickflip nose manuals on curbs in a professional's video part.

That was sick. Has anyone seen Quit Your Day Job yet? I think she has a part in that, and I'm guessing most of this was throwaway from it
Yeah I saw QYDJ.  Her part in that was just throwaway from this part it seems.  None of the cool lines and less technical manuals.  Honestly, that whole video was pretty disappointing.  Lots of the same spots over and over again, even repeated tricks on the same spot.  Felt like it was filmed in a couple months within a 20 mile radius.  

On that note, I really like this Thrasher part.  Would like to see Vanessa Torres film one of these Thrasher parts, her style is what stuck out most to me watching QYDJ.

Are they under-represented? I would say it's probably proportional. I just don't think there are as many women that skate as males. I don't think that's a good thing or bad thing really; it's just a fact. I doubt that people would disregard a woman that was giving Ishod Wair or K Walks a run for their money just because she was a girl. I think if women want to be represented more then of course there needs to be more that skate and there needs to be some that can perform at the same insane levels that some guys can because what is really holding them back?

I hope Lacey does excel and can become SOTY but right now I don't see many females that are pushing the envelope of what is capable on a skateboard, and I believe that they can. Making excuses for and accepting mediocre skill because someone is a girl isn't going to push them to be as good as they can be if you held them to the same insane standards that are being set by a lot of pros today.

I like a lot of pros that aren't really all that good skill wise. So I'm not saying every girl needs to be Ishod to be warranted attention, and I'm not saying someone can't like Lacey's skating but I'm not going to like her just because she's a girl. I'm just looking at skateboarding.

This was a good part but anyone who says it was good for anyone regardless of gender is either full of shit or watches one new video a year. If she was male this wouldn't get her shop flow.
why can't you?just for a second?get your head out of your deep, gaping asshole?

any girl who so much as steps foot on a board automatically gets treated like she has to be 20x better than the guy next to her, or else she better not step foot on that board ever again because she's just a waste of space and time. why else do you think so few girls are involved in skateboarding? because of stupid comments like that...

I hope you never raise a daughter.
I didn't say any of that you crybaby. Those are all your words.

I hope you get Alzheimer's.
you essentially said she was "good for a girl," but not good by "regular standards," did you not? am i not able to reasonably deduce that you're saying she has to be better than the guys regularly featured daily on thrasher in order for you to give a shit about her? that's the kind of shit mentality that makes girls not want to be involved in skateboarding. no matter what they do, they'll just get reduced to a novelty or never be considered to be on the same playing field.

and if you really think that part wasn't good enough to get her even on shop flow... then you're really stickin true to your username.

Uh... we aren't supposed to compare her to guys but are also supposed to also place her on the same playing field as everyone else? Seems contradictory to me.

Are we supposed to look at her as "good for a girl" or good by "regular standards"? I mean, when you take away the fact that she's a girl the part isn't that great to me. I don't think anyone is saying you can't like someone's skating that isn't technically top tier but that doesn't mean you can't acknowledge that they aren't as good as someone else. I hate Sean Pablo but apparently people like him enough to be considered pro despite not having that much skill in my opinion. I honestly don't care that she's a girl and I'm just looking at the skating, and what I see doesn't impress me. Is she good for a girl? Sure, but nothing is keeping females from performing the same exact level of skill as a guy so of course I hold them to the same standard. If holding girls to the same standard as guys is wrong and saying that she is only good compared to other girls is wrong then what the fuck are you supposed to do?

I talk shit and hate on most guy skaters too so I really give no special treatment to Lacey when I say I don't think she's that good. If I'm a piece of shit for thinking you should look at the skating and not pay attention to the fact that she's a girl then so be it. I hope that there is a day where there are just as many female pros as males with minimal skill gap between the two, that way you don't look like a misogynist for not liking the bad ones.

Women/ Girls are highly under-represented in skateboarding...skating should acknowledge and continue to point this out. ?�then again we have no problem with overly identifying with being a male right? ?�But I think it's naive to think the playing field will be level especially in extreme sports, even surfing is still largely male dominated, and they dont even have to flip their boards.

Are they under-represented? I would say it's probably proportional. I just don't think there are as many women that skate as males. I don't think that's a good thing or bad thing really; it's just a fact. I doubt that people would disregard a woman that was giving Ishod Wair or K Walks a run for their money just because she was a girl. I think if women want to be represented more then of course there needs to be more that skate and there needs to be some that can perform at the same insane levels that some guys can because what is really holding them back?

I hope Lacey does excel and can become SOTY but right now I don't see many females that are pushing the envelope of what is capable on a skateboard, and I believe that they can. Making excuses for and accepting mediocre skill because someone is a girl isn't going to push them to be as good as they can be if you held them to the same insane standards that are being set by a lot of pros today.

I like a lot of pros that aren't really all that good skill wise. So I'm not saying every girl needs to be Ishod to be warranted attention, and I'm not saying someone can't like Lacey's skating but I'm not going to like her just because she's a girl. I'm just looking at skateboarding.

Yes under-represented and under-exposed according to this doc.  
(https://ameliabrodka.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/underexposed_flyer_2013xxsml.jpg)

I dont think a skater has to perform on insane levels in order to get exposed, they should provide something new or innovative, or something marketable to a different demographic of people who can and should be influenced by skateboarding, in Lacy's case, she is a woman.  

I dont think anyone is making any excuses in this thread and who defines what is "mediocre" in the skate industry.  Im pretty sure there are pro's who a lot of us consider mediocre, and SOTY's we didn't agree with, so i think that its pointless to classify.

 No one is saying like her because of her gender, its more like look at what this woman is contributing to an art mainly known for its misogyny and destructive acts.

Personally I really enjoyed the part. I thought she had some surprising tricks in here and is doing stuff I see as impressive. To top it off, she is doing these tricks with a style I really enjoy. Would for sure watch another part of hers and will rewatch this again.
The nose wheelie round the corner nollie 360 flip out, back smith 360 shove and the ender were all proper "wow" moments for me. I would say some of that wow factor comes from the fact that she's a girl and I haven't seen her or any other girls do these tricks with her unique and pleasing style.

I'm glad this part is inciting discussion and giving Lacey some exposure. There are a handful of girl skaters I love watching and she's one of them right up there with Marissa (we need more gnar from that girl).
 Speaking of which , what happened to her?

ALSO speaking of gnar- anyone remember when Lacey was a cute 16 year old and busting killer looking hardflips down the Berrics stairs?

So yeah, skill wise that was a good part "for a girl", if we compare to the amount of skill shown on mens skating by today standards its lacking of course, but I think she's pushing the limits of her gender.

She has a pretty good style and does pretty hard tricks so no hate on Lacey from me. Yes not as good as some guys but whatever all sports are separated in skill level between the sexes why would skate boarding skill be any different. There's a reason why there are different events for men and women in gymnastics . The spring boards and spring floors also do a lot to bridge the gap in some events. There will never be a woman competing in the rings with top level men. Their upper body strength doesn't compare. I think balance wise men and women aren't to far apart but explosive movements eg. Pop are. Men's high jump record 8'.5" women's 6'10". That's a 14 inch difference. Fucking massive. She's a good skater and not just for a girl and I'm glad there's a place in the industry for her. She doesn't have to compete with the top tier guys. The one thing about her outlook based on her interviews that I think is a little off is that she complains that she's treated like a second class skater and the contests don't pay shit but she'd be earning exactly zero dollars from skating if she was lumped in with the boys. Maybe she'd have a better relationship with skating if she worked as a graphic designer still and skated for enjoyment. free stuff and some trips as life perks from skating like most guys who are flow. Just like 5 guys in my skate crew who are better than her by a fair margin and aren't jaded about what skating owes them. They're just hyped when a box arrives in the mail and they get a fresh board or shoes to skate after work.

I see the point of 'but I'm better than her'.....but don't tell me your hometown hero didn't put out a better part than BA did this year....but fuck it right? 

Skating is in a good place right now....whether we like it or not pretty much anything goes and that's why it's sick to see some chicks sneaking in there. 

No one wants to hear a skater bitch about something but she was somewhat right....if she wasn't working and could skate more she could produce something and prolly function as a pro.....

Gymnastics is a terrible analogy for comparisons, Women don't do High bar or the parallel bars which requires more upper body strength and requires less finesse...womens gymnastics probably get more attention since its more about form than power. Also there are two more events in men's gymnastics than womens, so i'd say yes there is a physical gap (especially huge gaps in height).  

 I also hear that halfpipes were exclusive to privileged private school types back in the days, and that people from "urban" or "ghetto" areas only had choices to skate street.  I thought about the shit i got for being a black skater, while i was growing up skating in the early 90's i got the "why are you doing that white boy shit" from all my family members / peers.  There werent skateparks and videos contained a ton of skate punk/ hardcore/ metal, so i wasnt exactly smiled upon.  

Are we gonna sit and pretend like misogyny doesn't exist in most of skateboarding.  The 9 club has had a bunch of interviews from people in the skate world and all of them were men, most of the interviews, documentaries.   Even when it's not based in actual skating most people are still only interested in males.  Its not directly outwardly saying no girls ...but some people start to wonder when something lacks diversity

In every other aspect we can judge it genderless and I thought it was good, with a cool flow, cool trick selection and a decent style. She rips!

nothing is keeping females from performing the same exact level of skill as a guy
You are literally wrong on scientific level

Yeah, women aren't physically the same as men. When it comes to more conventional sports I would say most would be at a disadvantage. BUT THIS IS SKATEBOARDING! There are pros that are literally obese, some that are wanna be body builders, and some that are just skin and bone. There are children that are prodigies and grandpas that still kill it. There have been fucking midget pros! There isn't any sport that I know of that allows for such physical diversity. So yeah, I call bullshit that there is anything stopping women from skating at the same level as a guy.

I heard that Lacey was two months pregnant in most of that footage. I'd love to see your favorite skater put out the same part while carrying a fetus.

I think he has one on the way.

I'm happy it looks like she's finally getting her due.
However, it's a little odd considering this isn't so far off from some of her last parts or what we knew she was capable of. Definitely edited better, though. I guess that's the power of presentation. Lacey rules!

You can't tell me there's shit chicks do on the uneven bars or jumping into a swimming pool that are less athletic than most of skateboarding......

What about the concept of girls not being as good because they don't see enough other girls skating, or not enough girls are in it.... Why so few black vert pros?  Maybe physically they just aren't the same as white guys......hmmmm....could be.

In the end...like I said....who cares....if you want to watch skateboarding advance...go watch Shane O'Neil....



She has a pretty good style and does pretty hard tricks so no hate on Lacey from me. Yes not as good as some guys but whatever all sports are separated in skill level between the sexes why would skate boarding skill be any different. There's a reason why there are different events for men and women in gymnastics . The spring boards and spring floors also do a lot to bridge the gap in some events. There will never be a woman competing in the rings with top level men. Their upper body strength doesn't compare. I think balance wise men and women aren't to far apart but explosive movements eg. Pop are. Men's high jump record 8'.5" women's 6'10". That's a 14 inch difference. Fucking massive. She's a good skater and not just for a girl and I'm glad there's a place in the industry for her. She doesn't have to compete with the top tier guys. The one thing about her outlook based on her interviews that I think is a little off is that she complains that she's treated like a second class skater and the contests don't pay shit but she'd be earning exactly zero dollars from skating if she was lumped in with the boys. Maybe she'd have a better relationship with skating if she worked as a graphic designer still and skated for enjoyment. free stuff and some trips as life perks from skating like most guys who are flow. Just like 5 guys in my skate crew who are better than her by a fair margin and aren't jaded about what skating owes them. They're just hyped when a box arrives in the mail and they get a fresh board or shoes to skate after work.

Yah...it's true my arguments suck because shit....skateboarding isn't a sport.....

I see the point of 'but I'm better than her'.....but don't tell me your hometown hero didn't put out a better part than BA did this year....but fuck it right? 

Skating is in a good place right now....whether we like it or not pretty much anything goes and that's why it's sick to see some chicks sneaking in there. 

No one wants to hear a skater bitch about something but she was somewhat right....if she wasn't working and could skate more she could produce something and prolly function as a pro.....


Skateboarding might not be a true sport but I would guess she earned the majority of her skate money in competitions that objectively score the abilities of the contestants then rank and pay them on their performance in said competition. I'm fine with skaters complaining about whatever they want. I'll also point out the hypocrisy of their opinions if I see them. Half of what I wrote directly relates to her not needing to be "the best" to have a place in the industry. If she doesn't understand why she doesn't earn ishod moneythen... And my hometown hero's are yours. See you at plaza, we can continue ranking the Dairy Queens.

I think you're giving some good arguments and I actually agree with the must of them but we need to acknowledge that women are more limited physically wise as men. That's why there's no women that runs as fast as bolt, and its not because they don't work hard for it. Just women and men bodies are different and even if they push it hard they aren't able to do it. That's why we don't have mixed genders sport competitions, not just because of the absence of a penis on a women's body.

You live in a bubble? Pancho Moler has jumped down some pretty big shit despite being a midget. Ten seconds on the internet would reveal that there are small children that are insanely good and COULD switch flip macba if given the chance to go there. That's ignoring the countess number of pros and ams that got recognized for their skill at a young age since the beginning of skateboarding. You telling me Ryan Sheckler sucked when he was a kid? The guy was probably better then and Lacey could have beat the shit out of him. Yeah, I still call bullshit that no girl ever will be able to do the same shit on a skateboard that male midgets and children can do. If all pros were roided up muscle bound freaks then maybe I could see how girls would be at a disadvantage but that couldn't be further from the truth for skateboarding. Lacey can do whatever makes her happy but for all girls to just accept that they will never be as good as guys at skateboarding, despite there being such variance in physicality in pros, is a terrible outlook to have if you actually want more women to enter skateboarding.

other times i want to watch something more mellow and "amateur". stuff is more laid back and relatable. not necessarily as difficult. still has its place.

I feel rather conflicted about Lacey Baker. One one hand, it's lame that the techest female skater is forced to take on other jobs to supplement her income. One the other hand, she intentionally makes herself look and sound as unmarketable as possible. I get that she doesn't feel comfortable wearing girly clothes. I don't feel very comfortable wearing a suit in meetings at my job, but I want the job, so I dress in the manner necessary to get my employer to pay me. It's like, dress however you want, but don't expect people to pay you for it.

The issue I have is not with her clothes. It's the fact that she has noticed that female skaters who dress girly tend to have greater financial success than those who don't, because that's what the industry wants, and has deliberately chosen not to dress girly because she doesn't want to. Upon consciously choosing to make a fashion statement she fully understands will hurt her financially, she then whines endlessly about not having financial success.

In a world where some people end up broke despite doing everything they can to avoid it, I have little sympathy for someone who choses that route when they have the choice not to. Perhaps in the normative sense, the skateboard industry should only care about tricks and not looks, but that's not what happens in the positive sense. She doesn't want to look girly when she skates contests? So what? I don't want to look professional in Hedgeopolis or Delivering Alpha. I do what my employer wants, and if I didn't, I wouldn't complain about being broke. She's lashing out at the industry for not bending around to suit her.

Seriously though, duffman looked/looks like a total clown and nearly kooked himself out of the industry for saying some stupid ass racist shit and was still able to make it off skating.

One the other hand, she intentionally makes herself look and sound as unmarketable as possible. I get that she doesn't feel comfortable wearing girly clothes. I don't feel very comfortable wearing a suit in meetings at my job, but I want the job, so I dress in the manner necessary to get my employer to pay me. It's like, dress however you want, but don't expect people to pay you for it.

her fits have been compared on this thread to heath and dylan, whether or not she is suceeding, she is clearly trying. Or are you saying that you think she should dress more like a "girl"? I think she looks pretty good doing her thing.

The issue I have is not with her clothes. It's the fact that she has noticed that female skaters who dress girly tend to have greater financial success than those who don't, because that's what the industry wants, and has deliberately chosen not to dress girly because she doesn't want to. Upon consciously choosing to make a fashion statement she fully understands will hurt her financially, she then whines endlessly about not having financial success.

In a world where some people end up broke despite doing everything they can to avoid it, I have little sympathy for someone who choses that route when they have the choice not to. Perhaps in the normative sense, the skateboard industry should only care about tricks and not looks, but that's not what happens in the positive sense. She doesn't want to look girly when she skates contests? So what? I don't want to look professional in Hedgeopolis or Delivering Alpha. I do what my employer wants, and if I didn't, I wouldn't complain about being broke. She's lashing out at the industry for not bending around to suit her.

I have two words for you: greg lutza's fedora

I don't follow the girl skate scene that closely but other than Leticia, the two most successful skaters that come to mind are Elissa and Marisa,  neither are exactly dressing up like Barbie...

I recently started playing Tony Hawk's Project 8 - my avatar is the female skater wearing girl's jeans and element coat. I'm not sure how much this matters but when I create a female skater in a video game I make them look like a female. However I'm a male but I dress like a female. This crazy new world scares even me

i liked that interview a lot better than her previous interviews where she seemed to complain a lot. i think the "i'm just doing my thing and don't care what people think" angle is much better and the way she seems to be focusing on the positive side of how things are progressing.

and this photo is so good. reminds me of that marchovich 360 flip

comments are full of hate for *that white boy's bowl cut*. Gave me a chuckle and made me feel like Lacey must be doing something right.

That interview was such a big shift from her previous ones that I'm totally on board. Good for her glad she's happier and less jaded. There are so many more girl skaters in Vancouver now than there were only a couple years ago. It's about time.
