Danika Duffy : Jetpack Blast Off

Danika Duffy : Jetpack Blast Off

Buckle your boots for this one, Danika Duffy just dropped her Jetpack Blast Off and it’s erupting with a solid smattering of East Coast urban. Danika shreds with dialed precision, and is a strong component of the Jetpack Crew.

If you’re not super familiar with the Jetpack crew, they are a rad group of lady rippers headed up by Amanda Hakinson. We reached out to Amanda for the scoop on the crew and what to expect from them this coming season.

Amanda, give us the nit and grit on Jetpack, who all is a part the crew?

The founders consist of Nirvana Ortanez, Danika Duffy, Isabella Borriello, Mary Rand, Marie Hucal, Alexa McCarty, Grace Mayernik, Desiree Melancon, Corinne Pasela, and me! We got to hang a lot with Jackie Lammert, Ashley-Dawn Byrd, Mary Walsh, Athena, and Ashley Rosemeyer during the winter and have spent some quality time with Ari Morrone, Kaleah Driscoll, and Jess Kimura this summer.  Shout out to the High Sasscade crew as well, love you ladies.  Davidaisy keeps our art game strong.

How did you all come together?

We are a group of close friends that have been brought together by snowboarding.  Most of us work, or have worked, at High Cascade which brings us to the playground that is the Pacific Northwest every year.  Last summer we had a really good time filming together and decided to continue into the winter.  We put together a webisode series that followed us from coast to coast and featured a lot of the people we met along the way.  The best footage was saved and put together into a montage that will be in Rendered Useless which premieres this fall, be sure to check it out!

Anything else we should know?

We’ll be at it again this winter so stay tuned.  Our fingers are crossed for a full return of winter in the west and we are working on planning a trip to Japan! @jetpack5000 @jetpack5000 @jetpack5000 @jetpack5000
