I had fun with the crew in Texas. Check out the video above.
“Since Primitive Skate’s inception, each Primitive pro’s first board has had a graphic that represents their spirit animal. Don Pendleton has been one of my favorite artists for as long as I can remember; his artwork has always been iconic and usually centered around the animal kingdom, so when we started talking about having a guest artist reinvent our animals, Don was the first person who came to mind. I’m excited to announce that initial idea has come to life in the form of the Pendleton Zoo”

It’s essential to make sure the photographer’s camera is always clean.

I try my hand in baking in a new head to head with Rachel Metz. See how we did.
When I look at Diego Najera I can see that this is a really special moment in his life and it reminds me of that stage in my career. I hold that period close to my heart and reliving it through Diego makes me excited to continue pushing my own skating.
I feel lucky to be the one to turn Diego pro, I’m fortunate that our paths crossed where I’m able to be involved in this part of his journey, and there’s extra dopeness because he’s a fellow Mexican so I feel really proud to have that connection with him. Congratulations, Diego!
