Growing up skating in the mid-2000’s, the only female skater on my radar was Elissa Steamer. But every summer, when my mom would tell me the X-Games was on TV, I would remember one more skater girl, Marisa Dal Santo. I knew she had big-time sponsors like Zero and Emerica, but I only seemed to see coverage of her when she would go on TV to collect X-Games medals. Marisa never looked like a cheesy contest skater. In ripped jeans, a Chicago Bears jersey, and fat Emericas, she was punk.
