ESCAPE TO NATURE

Nettie McLanahan

Hailing from the outskirts of London, Nettie and her boyfriend ride nearly every day to escape the city and get out into nature. She quickly got addicted to her Summerboard after initially trying her boyfriend’s and then taking the plunge to purchase one for herself.

Now she rides every other day.

Owning her own dog walking service with its own super cool van, she loves being outdoors all day. As a dedicated rock climber, she’s all about adrenaline, concentration, and getting lost in the ‘zone.’

Being in nature is where Nettie prefers to be, much more so than in the city, and being on her board allows her to easily get into the zone wherever she may be. Especially when she can find good concrete.

As her town is pretty green, Nettie rides over different terrain. She’s added Freshies to her board which has been an absolute game changer.

For Nettie, riding her board in the green outdoors has legit become second nature.
