I grew up skating with my friends in South Central Los Angeles. When I would watch skate videos and flip through skate magazines, I rarely saw people who looked like me and my friends. So, I decided to start Crenshaw Skate Club to represent us in the skate industry. But, I did not want the representation to stop with just me and my friends. The overall goal of Crenshaw Skate Club is to represent and empower inner city skaters all over the world.
