For the unknowing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patti_McGee
Patti McGee (born August 23, 1945) was the 1965 Woman's first National Skateboard Champion, Santa Monica. McGee was also the first female pro skateboarder.[citation needed] She was paid by Hobie/Vita Pak to travel and demonstrate the Hobie skateboard on a national level.[citation needed] This lasted almost a year until the craze subsided. Patti McGee was featured on the cover of Life magazine May 14, 1965 and the cover of the fourth issue of Skateboarder that same year. McGee is still seen in and around the sport as "the first Betty" and an old-school icon.

Already have the Life cover printed up on a blue T-shirt which looks as cool as a cool thing can be.
Really want this one on a T-shirt as well which will be equally as coolier.

I met her at the OMA BBQ a year or three ago... nice woman. :D

Another famous person on the left... I think... Mike Pistrui from Old Man Army and lead singer of the awesomm BTHOOM:
I've met him and skated with him and can't believe that he sings like this...
