21 year old Dóra who now lives in Edinburgh after moving to the UK last March decided to leave Hungary and come to Scotland to work, improve her English, travel and generally just enjoy life!
Dóra hasn’t had the time to get homesick as the skate parks close to where she now lives are in her words “unbelievable!” “In Hungary we don’t have such good skate parks, just a few small shitty ones. Now I’m living in Edinburgh and skate in Saughton Skatepark, which is a huge concrete park. Before I came here I only hoped that one day I’d be able to skate something like this!”
3 weeks ago Rubicon held a week long girls skate camp which brought together 14 female riders from across Europe to shred parks around the UK – which is where Dóra’s talents got noticed. “I would never have had a chance to go to something like this if I was in Hungary – it was the first time that I have skated with so many other girls. That camp was such a dream, all the girls were so friendly, they were awesome skaters and we visited so many skate parks. That was the best week in my life…so farJ! After this week I feel like I will stay in the UK for a long time because there are lots of opportunities to skate.” Props have to go to skate camp coach Emma Richardson who was straight on the phone as soon as the camp had finished to recommend Dóra as the new rider for ROGUE.
