If longboard downhill polo was a sport she’ll probably kick all of our asses. Even if Dasha is usually late on the court, she’ll never miss a plane for a good tournament around the tasman sea. If you’re back is blocked after a hard day of polo she’ll give you a good yoga lesson to fix you up! Here’s a little more about Dasha
