Robin Logan

I was raised in Hermosa Beach California by my mother Barbara and 3 older brothers. I watched Brian, Bruce and Brad surf and skate everyday. My brother Bruce put me on a skateboard at 4 years old. My earliest recollection of skateboarding was on a asphalt hill at Pier Avenue Jr. High. I remember going to skate places like Paul Revere, Pacific Palisades, Beliagio schools and a run in Palos Verdes called The Miracle Mile. Thanks to my family I have been rolling ever since. We moved to Encinitas in the summer of 1972 and then Skateboarding started taking off again in 1973. I started skating around town and in the hills of La Costa with my brothers, memories I will never forget. One of my first competitions was the Bahne/Cadillac National Championships in 1975 in Del Mar, California where I took 2nd place in the women’s freestyle. From then until 1980, I competed in many contests and promoted the Logan Earth Ski brand of skateboards. I skated in a traveling show called Skateboard Expo along with my brothers Bruce & Brad along with many other great skaters. We traveled across the U.S. performing in arena’s in different cities. I also did appearances in numerous T.V. shows, commercials, surf/skate films & movies. I also traveled outside the U.S. to places like Tahiti, England, Germany & Canada. In 2009 I got to watch my skateboard hero, my brother Bruce inducted into Skateboarding Hall Of Fame as the first inductee, that was one of my most precious memories. The following year I was honored to be put on the Hall Of Fame ballot as a nominee with other great female skaters. To this day I travel across the U.S. in my job with my skateboard by my side stopping and riding parks, flatland and just rolling when and where I can. I am proud to be a family member from the First Family Of Skateboarding.
