The thing that always bothered us about “Day In The Life” sections is how they look so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up,” they visit a couple of cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer, and fade to black.
So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite. Louie Barletta, who we’d gone on some weird adventures with in the past, put us in touch with Samarria to skate the West LA Courthouse and explore the surrounding area. True to our east coast idiocy, we ended up skating a bunch of weird back alley spots in lieu of more famous concrete.
In between touring neighboring Culver City, Samarria talked with us about how she grew up thinking of going into the WNBA before discovering skating, and how now she’s taking a cannabis break to avoid any pitfalls before the Olympics.
If the only thing you knew about Samarria was that handrail she skated in King Of The Road, we’re glad to give you a peek into her day to day life.
