hoopla rider lea taylor has been busy skating and surfing in her home state of florida this fall. She recently sent us an update with some pics:

"Lea has been active with a combination of Surfing and Skateboarding competitions. At the National Kidney Foundations Labor Day Surf and Turf, Lea was the only Lady in the event and placed 6th overall with a 4th in Skateboarding at the Cocoa Beach Skatepark. The Surfing took place at the Cocoa Beach Pier. Lea also competed at the Slater Invitational Surf and Turf, Lea again was the only Lady- placing 7th overall in the event. If Lea is not at the Skatepark you will find her at many of the local Surf Breaks and events around Florida, she always has her skateboard and loves to session at the local skatepark after a Surf. Lea is a modern Girl with a 60's spirit living a lifestyle of Surfing and skateboarding. Lea keeps in shape working out playing Soccer and Cross Country staying focused on her academics in the Florida Virtual School Home School Programs."

Thanks for the update, Lea! Keep up the good work :)
