Meet our featured CRD girl of the month

91 Smashasaurus Bex

Our mighty 91 Smashasaurus Bex is a blocking force to be reckoned with. If you’re an opposing jammer, she’s probably the last person you see before being hit for six.

1. Hello Smashasaurus Bex. Where are you from?

I live in a cave because I am a dinosaur!

2. How long have you been skating with CRD?

I have been skating for CRD for 2 and a half years

3. Do you have a pre-bout preparation ritual?

Not any rituals but there is a lot of nervous weeing ha!

4. What’s your current skate set-up?

I currently skate on a custom wikko boot with revenge plates, and atom presto wheels 88/92

5. What have been your standout, all-time favourite moments from your CRD career?

Making it to the top 20 in Europe is such a big achievement for riot squad and for myself looking back I never though I’d play a sport and actually be quite good!! ha

6. What are your goals for the future in your skating career?

As a predominant blocker I’d really like to start jamming more and work on my fitness! I also can’t wait for the Summer so I can go learn how to skate ramps and bowls.

7. Which skaters inspire you?

Riot squad is full of incredibly talented skaters, I don’t really look to one skater as inspiration, to me everyone in riot squad are my inspiration!

8. What do you do when you’re not skating?

When I’m not skating I’m usually at work, coaching our rookie skaters or propping up a bar in Croydon! Ha ha!

9. Do you have a party trick?

I’d be lying if I said I had a party trick of my own! But our salty sea dog Total Bevlam has a trick or two up her sleeve that she has taught me!

11. Are you a lover or a fighter?

Off track I’m a lover but as soon as i step on track I’m a fighter for CRD!
