Yes you heard it right, the faster female downhill skateboarder Emily Pross from New Jersey joined the KebbeK Skateboards family.
Before we left off to visit ISPO, the biggest sports trade fair located in Munich, KebbeK Skateboards released a teaser photo of their new pro team member which got people guessing who it is.
It was a few days later that KebbeK welcomed Emily Pross to their pro team. Emily is, like all their other team members, something special. In the past years she has set the bar for other downhill skateboarders across the globe with a friendly but competitive spirit and reaping the rewards of her hard work.
She is not only a three time IDF Women’s World Champion but has also actively competed in the male dominated Open class. She won 3rd place in Open at the Laguna DH race in Mexico (with a broken toe), proving that determination and skill is all that matters. Last year’s racing season she finished 9th overall in the Open class.
Kebbek supports the core skate scene and really does a great job at promoting all kinds of skateboarding. The team is a family, supporting, and encouraging each other. It was an easy decision, to say yes to that kind of atmosphere. ~ Emily Pross
As for her new chapter with KebbeK Skateboards, Emily will soon be riding on her two new pro model boards (more news coming soon).
We wish Emily and KebbeK all the best in this year’s and future racing seasons.
