My name is Tessa, I am 25 years old and I am a downhill longboard racer from Vancouver! I grew up on the north shore while spending my summers on the Sunshine Coast where I learned how to waterski, wakeboard and wakesurf...the beginning of my love for boardsports! It was also on the Sunshine Coast, in Pender Harbour, where I learned how to downhill longboard for the first time. I got into skateboarding when I got back from travelling in 2018 and wanted to try something new, it was extremely difficult to begin with, but I fell in love with the speed and the feeling of flying down a hill. I am always trying all different types of skateboarding, but downhill is my favourite. I would love to learn how to kite surf next! Apart from skateboarding, I love dogs, my van Bruce, being healthy and drinking kombucha!!!
