Emily Pross and Riley Harris join Daddies Board Shop
Daddies Board Shop starts the race season strong by adding 2 new team riders, Riley Harris and Emily Pross.
Daddies Board Shop has been around since 1995, in one of the most skate friendly cities in the world, Portland Oregon. Having been a part of longboarding for over 2 decades, they’ve seen riders come and go throughout the sport and know true talent when they see it. And with the start of 2016, they added two heavy hitters to their team. Emily Pross and Riley Harris, names you’ve known, loved, and will continue to hear at podiums far and wide.
Emily Pross is a dedicated downhill racer hailing from New Jersey. She’s one of the most passionate and talented skaters out there. Not many know this, but at first, her parents did not like the idea of their daughter racing. So Emily had to secretly buy her own suit and register for the race without them knowing. But once they found out, they couldn’t have been more supportive. She was the female world champion in 2015, and was on the cover of Skate[Slate] magazine last year. Already hot out of the gate in 2016, she already has two 1st place podiums under her belt. She’s not only dominating the women’s division, but she’s giving the boys a run for their money, being in the top 15 time qualifiers in the Open division of a World Cup race.
