Threadhead: Brooklinn Khoury

Posted 2020 Sep by Lauren Turley / #people

Meet Brooklinn Khoury, the newest addition to the Threadhead gang! She's a California-born skater who is currently KILLING it. We're so stoked to have her on the team. Read about her below! 

Who are you and what's your thing?
"My name is Brooklinn Khoury, I'm 21 years old and I'm a skater from California.

How did you get into your craft? 
Growing up I was always made fun of for doing something different. About 4 years ago I decided that if a guy could skate so could I. I had no one around me to teach me what to do, so I learned myself. I can't tell you how many times I fell and got hurt, but still had such a love for the sport. I'm so happy I continued to skate, it's the one thing in life besides my family and friends that makes me the happiest.  How do you kick it during your free time when you're not skating?When I'm not skating, you can find me thrift shopping with my friends I love wearing unique outfits, going to the beach, working on music, and hang around the people I love.

Any advice for girls wanting to enter the skate world? 
Don't let anyone tell you that you shouldn't be skating, if you are passionate about skating go to the skatepark every day, and have fun. Don't be too hard on yourself, skating may take some time to get used to, but it is so worth it. I was the only girl that would go to the skate park and yes it was intimidating but the more you go, the more girls will show up and you will eventually have your own girls skating group. If you ever need someone to skate with let me know!

Worst crash? How'd you get back on the board? 
The worst crash I had was me breaking my tailbone in 3 parts. I was skating a bowl and I slipped out and landed straight on my tailbone. It hurt the worst, but it was a freak accident and I couldn't wait to get back on my board.

Here at Thread, our current anthem is "Carry On". How do you carry on through the good and the bad? Especially the good and bad of 2020! 
Carrying on in 2020 has been difficult because when Covid first happened all of the skateparks began to close. I think that Covid has been a blessing because through this time because Ive spent so much time with my family and friends. it has made me realized how blessed we are to be able to be more in nature and realize how beautiful having family and friends around you could be. Always keep your head up and learn to see the beauty in everything."
