About me: Hi, my name is Caterine and I'm currently working for Older Woman I manage and direct their new videos and I do really like this job.
I definitely advise you to visit them on a regular basis.
She passed out hundreds of homemade flyers up and down the Pacific Coast Highway.
At the door, she took tickets until there wasn’t room left to stand. “As rebellious as we thought we were,” says Steven Diamond, a childhood friend, “we were nothing compared to Jackie.” She was smarter and bolder than the other teenagers, constantly doing things girls were told they shouldn’t. She learned power chords on her Stratocaster and went to bed with the radio on, hoping to hear Fanny, the one all-female rock band in the universe, on KLOS.
A middle school friend remembers driving to the grocery store with her mother one afternoon and spotting Jackie at the freeway on-ramp, her 6-foot-10-inch custom fiberglass swallowtail board under one arm and her thumb out.
Jackie just wanted to find her own group of misfits.
She’d hit the beach and paddle out in the quiet, pre-dawn dark.
It was the only time she could be on the water and not have to deal with the catcalls and the teasing, the good-natured gibes that gradually shaded into something harder and meaner.Before sunrise, she was just another surfer, her back to the sand, waiting for the right wave. Tall and slender with bright blue eyes and brown hair down to her shoulders, Jackie could have passed for Mary Tyler Moore’s daughter. ” She could never tell how seriously to take the attention. ” When Jackie heard that only male surfers were being paid to attend the national championships that year in North Carolina, she organized two benefit screenings of surf films to cover the travel expenses for female competitors.The surfer dudes called her “Malibu Barbie.” One editor of a surfing magazine struck up a correspondence and sent her letters addressed to “Maliboobie.” “You had better get hot and send some good photos,” he wrote to her in black marker. In a letter to the editor published in June 1974, Jackie admonished one magazine for its skin-deep coverage of female surfers: “If they’re so hot, why don’t you show them surfing? She cold-called directors to cajole them into donating reels of their documentaries for her events, and phoned local officials to arrange for fire permits, security and space.And since this was Los Angeles in the mid-’70s, that search ultimately led her to the Sunset Strip, where she could dance and discover new bands and feel at home among all the free spirits and Ziggy Stardust wannabes.“Sunset felt like the center,” recalls Victoria Lasken, a high school friend of Jackie’s.“That’s where you got to meet your tribe.” This was the Strip pre-paparazzi, pre-bodyguards with ear pieces, pre-20-member entourages, pre-AIDS, pre-everything.
