Monique Vizzerra knows what matters in life. Your family, your friends, your weekends, and being passionate about your career.
Born and raised in Gilbert, Arizona, she started working at her local skate shop and has never left the industry 15 years later (at the time of this post). She was moved out to LA thanks to a new job at Active Ride Shop, then was picked up by Supra Footwear to run their LA and NYC stores. After years in retail, she was brought in house to manage the future product lines and work directly with her skate heroes such as Jim Greco to design their next collaboration collections.
While she obsesses over product and spreadsheets and merchandising and marketing and continuing to deliver to the customer the stories and excitement of skateboarding that she grew up with, she also excels at having fun. So much so her license plate reads FRKNWKN.
On the weekends you can find her supporting her awesome friends - creatives & entrepreneurs out making cool shit and making shit happen; at home hanging out in mom’s pool practicing cannon balls and drinking coconut margaritas (see their #coconutmargaritaclub ); cruising through LA stopping at roof top pools, back yard parties and her favorite vintage store The Fox Hole on Sunset; and of course enjoying a couple of ice cold Budweisers.
When we grow up, we’re going to be just like Monique.
