Is Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins Pastrana the coolest mum on the planet?

Your daughter Addy [the father, and Lyn-Z’s husband is moto X wonder Travis Pastrana] seems like a super cute little girl, is she showing signs of loving the shred yet!?

She is awesome! She loves to go fast and go high! She also loves to watch me skate, for me to skate her on my board, or to just play with a skateboard so she for sure is showing interest thus far.

You’re fully an ambassador for action sports mums (of which there seems to be more and more by the day!). How does that make you feel and do you have any advice for mums wanting to keep skating or snowboarding or surfing while they’re pregnant or once they have kids?

A lot of people seem to think or act like their entire world has to now spin on the axis of their child and that their lives have to completely change but that’s never the way I’ve looked at it. To me it’s just another little buddy along for the ride. I bring Addy everywhere, she does everything with us, and I haven’t let having a child hold me back from anything. You can be a great parent and continue your life almost exactly as it was before (in my opinion anyway). Parenting can be challenging and travelling with a child can be more tiring than before but it’s worth it to have your sweet little buddy with you and continue what you love to do!

And what do you say to folk who say mums should stay out of the skate park!? 

That’s just dumb. They obviously don’t have experience with a #skatemom 😉
