Who is Lyn-Z Adams?

Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins (born September 21, 1989) is a professional skateboarder from Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California. Adams Hawkins is one of a very small group of professional female skaters. Due to a broken arm in 2005 and leg surgery in 2006, Lyn-Z has missed out on many recent competitions. She was the on-camera host for the girls competition at the West 49 Canadian Open in Hamilton in September 2006. She is also featured skater in the video game Tony Hawk's Project 8.

Lyn-Z got into skateboarding after her brother, Tyler, bought her a membership at the Encinitas YMCA when she was six years old. Her mother often travels with her. Adams Hawkins' skateboards bear her trademark, a message to her late father.

She is sponsored by DC Shoes, Roxy, Mechanical Grip Tape, RVCA, and Pro-Tec Helmets. She is also featured on a number of skate DVDs including Getting Nowhere Faster and the Groms series.
