“I started skating when I was 5 yrs old. My dad had a skateboard and I used to play with it whenever I could. I could lay on it, kneel and stand on it whenever it moved. It was a pretty cool toy. My dad also surfs so he would take me surfing with him too.
Some of the people who influence my skating are Chris Russell, Alex Perelson, Jimmie Wilkins, Elliot Sloan and PLG.
Favorite places to skate are Clairemont YMCA, Shockus/OB, DC/Monster, Tony’s, Elliot’s ” – Tate Carew

About: Back in 2010 we noticed alot of Skateboarders, Longboarders, BMX riders and Roller Derby participants were getting knocked out and worse in traditional soft foam skate helmets. So we set out to make a helmet that would help protect the head better and still fit nice and deep on the head like a traditional skate helmet. We made a better, safer helmet for life long skaters.
