Rate Pro

Graham started skating at 4 years old, and hasn’t been able to stop since. Understanding the value of hard work paying off, and being immersed into a diverse culture where EVERYONE is accepted is the reasons why this lifestyle has remained magical for him. Pushing your way to work, rolling to school, cruising to a friend’s house, riding the ramps, or shredding a plaza. Does the idea of skateboarding sound like something you want to do? 

 

If yes, then go for it! Skateboarding is a gift that never stops giving. The sensation of floating across the pavement, the taste of landing a trick, the gratification of learning something new, moments of connecting with people you might not have ever met, and the satisfaction of an enjoyable work out. These are all beautiful things. Skateboarding is a world consisting of an international community about peace, unity, love, and having fun. Discover its magnificence.

 

Skateboarding is not like any other sport. One must not need to be athletic to participate. There is no coach, no uniform, and no scores. The individual has the right and freedom to skate how and how much he or she wants to. Anyone can start at any age, no matter where you live, or no matter what stage in life you are at. The only two rules are to be safe and to have fun. If you respect the skateboard, it will bring you only great feelings, experiences, and opportunities.

 

Graham has traveled intercontinentally because of his passion for skateboarding. He has strong appreciation for the art and expression of the hobby, is grateful for anyone who has interest in the game, and has a keen eye for architecture and skate-friendly objects and areas. With an open mind and heart, this man has skated with some of the top famous professionals, and at the same time enjoys meeting a person who has no skate background yet sparks curiosity about the activity.

 

If you are looking to find a new outlet to release your energy, and want to have a gigantic smile on your face while doing it, you can not go wrong to give skateboarding a shot. If you already have some years into it, and want to upgrade your skills, this is also your guy. Graham is flexible, patient, kind, friendly, and welcomes children, teens, young adults, and adults.
