Skating above, 19 year-old California girl Patti McGee, who was the first National Girls’ Skateboarding Champion in 1965 and the first female pro skateboarder.  She was sponsored by Hobie (owned by the orange juice company Vita Pak) and appeared on the cover of Life Magazine.  Patti actually started out as a surfer in San Diego but took up skateboarding when it became popular in the mid-sixties (Life actually called it a “craze”).
