DL: Which skater inspires you most, and why?
EV: This is a hard questions, my harlots are inspirational as they work their socks off, I remember Helen Wheels (Sherif shutyour pie hole) visiting LRG years ago, she was so awesome that inspired me. Various LRG inspire me, Raw Heidi who was an ace captain, Slice Andice who shared her pivot skills to help me get to where I am today. Re-animather as she looks so graceful in the pack and her jumps are amazing. Suzyhot hot the bod to die for.
DL: Do you have any advice for skaters just starting out?
EV: Get fit! core fitness…. if you know me you’ll know I bleat on and on about this. Learn the game, strategy before getting too wrapped up in hitting and finally learn to hit with lower body first, puts you in better sted than trying shoulder hits 2 feet from the opposition.
