She says her skateboarding motto is "Safety before fashion". I am sure those soccer socks pulled up to her knees will be the next big thing in skateboarding fashion mags. She may have some of her mother in her after all. Both the safety and the fashion.
She skates goofy foot. Not sure what you are? Check here. I know you are dying to find out. Goofy foot suits Marissa too. She likes goofy in all things.
She's looking pretty good, eh? Like a chip off the old goofy block. She also had her first viola lesson this week. A string instrument is new and uncharted territory in both the Vaas and Beaty clans. She taught herself to eek (or should that be shriek) out "Twinkle, Twinkle" this week with a little help from her friend Abby. A study in contrasts -goofy foot skater and viola player. That's my girl.
