Before half these days’s techniques were even thought up, Colleen Boyd Turner was blazing tracks. Now she’s an extremely deserving 2021 Skateboarding Hall of Fame choice. Unbelievably, this badass began skating on a piece of plywood nailed to roller skates and rapidly ended up being understood for her rolling handstands and daredevil relocations. In a current interview, 70-year-old Boyd stated she hopped back on the board after 55 years on strong ground. How’d it go? Well, “It’s not like riding a bike, not even close,” she stated. “It’s actually pretty scary.”
Watch a teenage Boyd perform her signature relocations (plus signature yes helmet no shoes look) for the Wide World of Sports in the vintage video listed below.
