What skimboard do you ride: BZ pro

 

Local hood: The E-burg

Favorite skim event: Hallifornia Festival. It's basically Woodstock and the X-Games put together

What you do when you aren’t skimboarding: I hit the swole palace (gym) and a skate a bunch.

How, when and where did you discover skimboarding: Logan convinced to go with him to dash point and ride a board his brothers made. I actually hated it at first but my dad decided to make a board for myself and my little brother. My brother loved it and because of my big brother ego I couldn't let him be better than me at anything so I kept riding and eventually loved it
