Cher Strauberry (born 1992) is a goofy-footed American skateboarder and musician.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Skateboarding[edit]

At age 12, Strauberry took first place overall in the California Amateur Skateboard League.[1] Although experiencing early success as a skateboarder, Strauberry quit skateboarding for a number of years after a series of ankle injuries.[1] On January 1, 2017 Leo Baker (skateboarder) came to a show Strauberry was playing. Leo told Cher they were a fan of her band. This inspired Strauberry to start skating again.[1]

In 2019, All Hail the Black Market released a Cher Strauberry signature skateboard.[7]

Strauberry does a backside 180 heelflip at Embarcadero, in the 2019 Supreme video CANDYLAND directed by William Strobeck.[8] Strauberry's clip is followed by Beatrice Domond.[9]

Skate video parts[edit]

Music[edit]

At age 16, Strauberry discovered the Alternative Music Foundation in Berkeley, an all-inclusive and all-ages collective music venue. At the venue, she saw Younger Lovers, a gay punk band. So inspired, Cher went straight home that night and started her band, Pookie and the Poodlez.[1]

Twompsax[edit]

Twompsax is Strauberry's current project.[1][12][13]

Transitioning[edit]

On March 5, 2018, Strauberry announced to her Instagram followers that she was transitioning.[1]
