The Beverly Flood Interview

Let me introduce to you a very sweet and extremely motivated 16 year old  skater girl named Beverly Flood.  I met her many years ago while skating she was this tall, skinny, kinda shy, bright eyed blond girl that would come to Grass Valley skate park with her Mom, you would always see her mom there watching Beverly.  Bev’s mother has been a huge supporter of her daughter skateboarding, this caught my attention right away.  All the years skating I haven’t seen many parents that went out of their way for their little girls to be braking all kinds of bones getting beat up while hanging out with a bunch of boys at skate parks. This young up & comer is one of those girls that just shines, she is easy to talk to and is just an over all nice person.  I have high hopes for Beverly in skateboarding because of her good attitude and devotion to skateboarding this girl’s name will be known in the years to come.  Interview by Meme founder of Few&Far-

If you had a yard sale what would in your pile of used crap consist of?                                                           – It would consist of old clothes kids toys and probably old skateboards!

Worst injury?                                                                                                                                                        – Just broke my wrist a day before the Girls Combi Classic and I still skated in the comp and won first place for my age group!

What skater(s) inspires you?                                                                                                                            – Steve Cab and Bob Burnquist

Do you do other shit besides skate?                                                                                                                – Not really I just skate and work!

Can you kick flip??  lol sorry had to… (Most cliche asked question)                                                              – I can’t kickflip! Haha

Did you ever take a break from skating? If so, why?                                                                                – When I was 9 I started skating that year I went to skate camp in Windells and I fell and cracked my helmet and stopped skating tell 2years ago when the first Few N Far Skate Jam was and I decided to go skate with all the girls and I haven’t stopped skating sense then, so now I’ll be going on my fourth year of skating this year!

 I got to skate with you this summer at Placerville skate  park. Why on earth did you KEEP SKATING after you dislocated your elbow!?!   – I Fucking love skateboarding that’s why! There’s really no reason behind it.

What do you think of women’s skateboarding today?                                                                            -Women Skateboarding is getting a lot bigger and a lot more girls are skating which is rad!! But I still feel like the guys in this industry still don’t give enough credit for us girls.. I mean a girls pro competition, the purse prize is like $1500 but a pro guys comp is $30,000!! That’s not fair!!

Do you feel you are treated fairly being an up and coming female skater?                                                  – It depends on the competition every comps different and the judges always have favorites but so far all my competitions that I’ve enter I feel that my placing was pretty fair.

Why are you a apart of Few&Far?                                                                                                                       – – I’m apart of this group case they just want girls to get out on a skateboard and just try it. That’s what I did I just tried skateboarding and I fell in love.  Few & Far isn’t about being a pro girl skateboarder it’s just about getting girls together and skate!!

Re-cap of Few and Far in 2013

FNF2013

Well… This was a very exciting year for us!! A lot of projects went on in 2013:
For example, We had a group art show in San Francisco. We were invited to paint large events and art festivals, We also got featured in a well known graffiti magazine called “Infamous”. We also are Working on some new videos that will be coming out soon!!. We did fun creative photo shoots with friends and F&F members.

We participated in large mural productions as a crew and separately all over the world. We even put on a skate jam with live art for youth. There were so many side projects we were a part of that we weren’t able to fit all of it in this post. To keep taps on what Few and Far is up to this year Follow us on Twitter /FB or IG @fewandfarwomen More info HERE on our work.
