For those of you that don’t know who Kaya Turski is I’ll give a bit of background on her. At just 14 years old she turned ASA Pro, and continued to dominate Womens Rollerblading, street and park.
She would reach the podium in pro Men events, and put out street sections that would put most men to shame. At the age of 17 she discovered skiing (thanks to D-Structure selling both rollerblades and twin tip ski’s).
After working a job at two Subway locations she saved up just enough money to work on her skiing in Whistler. Within the year she signed her first pro contract. At age 28, she has now been a professional athlete for half of her life. […]
What’s up everyone! Here’s the second State of Mind Webisode of the season: Wild (Woodward) West State of Mind.
Some of you may know that I grew up rollerblading. Ya ya fruitbooter! ;) All jokes set aside, I really did love it and feel as though it’s helped me become the skier I am today.
Last summer, my girl Ashley Battersby and I rolled out to Woodward West in Cali on some windy days to get some foam pit action going. We had a blast, check it out!
Right now I’m shredding in Mammoth getting ready for X, next webisode coming soon, stay tuned! – Kaya Turski.
About Kaya Turski
Kaya Turski is a Canadian freestyle skier. She is a two-time Winter X Games champion in slopestyle (2010 & 2011).
At the 2010 Winter X Games XIV held in Aspen, she won her gold medal with the highest ever slopestyle score at a Winter X Games with 96.66.
One week after she won the gold medal in Slopestyle at the 2011 Winter X Games XV in Aspen, Colorado, ahead of Keri Herman and Grete Eliassen, she captured the silver medal at the 2011 FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships (Wikipedia).
Kaya Turski, pro skier and a rollerblader, turned 22 years old a few months ago and we all heard about her.
At the moment she began to compete, she went to the LG Action Sports World Championships of Dallas in 2006, finished 4th, then became a pro at the finals in Los Angeles, won the Vermont Open in ski, and wins her second straight X Games women’s Slopestyle gold medal this year.
She can be seen in the dvd Road to Nowhere next to Chase Rushing, Sean Santamaria, or Michael Collins, Brenton Wheeler..
Sponsored by Red Bull, Orage, Oakley, Salomon, Skullcandy, DonJoy, and D-Structure, I really wanted her to share with all her vision of Rollerblading and of her other passions in my column.
Kaya Turski dominated the field to win the first gold of Winter X Games 14. Check this ESPN Video.
