We’re back with our fifth Intelligence Report episode here at The Bones Brigade Audio Show, and we couldn’t be more stoked- for joining us in the studio is none other than the legendary Anita Tessensohn! Featured prominently in one of Powell Peralta’s most iconic ads (1987’s “Some Girls Play With Dolls. Real Women Skate.”, which as of this recording is still being used by the company as a grip tape graphic) and game-changing videos (1988’s Public Domain), Anita’s skate career might have been cut short far too early, but as the first female street skater with a part in a major skate video, her contributions to skateboarding remain timeless and groundbreaking to this day. Tune in as we hear about Anita’s early days of skating in Oregon, getting sponsored, filming for Public Domain, riding for Powell while working at World Industries, and many more incredible tales. In addition, we’ll dip into an epic mailbag where some mind-blowing facts about the “Eight” video (check out our last episode) come to light. A wise woman once said “Anybody who wants to skate should skate”, so bust a kickflip off the nose and join us, shall you?
