Elissa Steamer, Lauren Perkins, Evelien Bouilliart and flow riders Jessie Van Roechoudt, Kenna Gallagher and Stefanie Thomas were all at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest over the weekend for the etnies GvR (Goofy Vs. Regular) contest weekend blowout. The GvR weekend’s festivities included the final event in the Push, the etnies Girl Jam contest series on Saturday, Oct. 22, which is why the girls were in town. Elissa ended up in third place, Evelien in fourth, Lauren in fifth, Jessie in seventh, and Kenna placed eighth. Congratulations to all of them on a successful weekend!

Elissa flew back to San Francisco on Monday. She’ll be up in SF for the next month or so just skating and doing her thing.
Lauren is busy with schoolwork and even more important things, like figuring out what she’s going to be for Halloween! Hopefully we’ll get some photos—you’ll just have to check back to find out.
Evelien flew back to Belgium on Sunday night, while the GvR contest was finishing up. It was a quick trip (three nights only) because she had to return home for school.
Jessie will be in the Southern California area for a couple of weeks skating and trying to plan out an art show she has been working on for awhile.
Kenna also headed back up to San Francisco after the weekend. Like Lauren and Evelien, she had to get back to her schoolwork (the only difference is that Kenna is in college, not high school).
Stefanie is back at home in Long Beach, Calif., skating everyday to accumulate footage and photos.
That’s it for now…check back soon for more team updates.
