Emerica flow rider Marisa dal Santo has been making a name for herself as one of the top female skaters out there right now. She has continually skated girls’ contests at a level that could compete with the guys. Today, she won the gold medal in the Women's Skateboard Street event at X Games 13 and also put a nice chunk of change in her pocket.
Throwing a kickflip down the double set first try, a backside flip down the four-block, a gap to lip, a frontside 50-50 and a frontside boardslide down the the double set gap-to-rail were just a few of the tricks she nailed. Marisa also turned 20 years old today, so happy birthday and congratulations. What a birthday present!
