How did you get into Distance Skateboarding?
I got into distance skateboarding from a cross country background, and to manage depression I’ve had for almost 10 years now. I used to run from 5th grade throughout high school, so I naturally developed that endurance. After competitive running I was eager to fill the void. When I got into skating everything transferred very smoothly; short skates became hour-long cruising ventures. Of course everything changed one I got into the racing scene because I was introduced to competition. Distance Skateboarding promotes endorphin release, it soothes my soul.
Alyssa Monteiro is the 2015 Fiesta Island Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon Champion! Alyssa’s win was not easy, as she defeated reigning champion Lexi Hutchings who was favored for the 2015 race. Alyssa is from Chicago, Illinios and this was her 2nd Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon. She has been travelling to quite a few skate events, skating a Bustin Maestro. Her efforts have definitely paid off. Alyssa’s name will be forever etched into the Adrenalina trophy and will be remembered as the fastest women’s skater in San Diego for the year 2015. The following is an in-depth interview with Alyssa to learn a bit about who she is and why she loves distance skateboarding.
