There are a lot of mamas who we could throw the term cool mum at these days, but Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins Pastrana could quite possibly be the coolest mum of the bunch. We caught up with the multiple X Games medallist vert skater, Nitro Circus massiiiiive air getter and parent of a toddler to chat motherhood, radness and dealing with internet craziesHey Lyn-Z, how’s it going?
It’s going great. Just loving being a mom and continuing to skate on the Nitro Circus Live Tours.X Games compared to say performing at something like Nitro Circus?
I think I put a bit more pressure on myself when competing rather than performing. There is no “winning” in a Nitro show exactly where as in a competition like X Games you focus on doing your best and doing what it takes to win. I still want to do my best and push the envelope of my skating at Nitro but if I fall I’m not quite as hard on myself.
