Travis has been skateboarding for the past 20 years. As a teenager, he was sponsored by Dex North, a local skate park. During that time he endured an injury that brought his amateur career to a halt. Now he’s dedicated to teaching kids the proper safety skills so that they won’t make the same mistake he did. Travis is a hands-on teacher who will focus on the basics, teaching them to understand all aspects of their boards and learn love and respect for the sport. Giving them the tools they’ll need to grow as a young skater.
