After countless hours in the van and many laughs later–Jack Olson is pro for REAL!
The REAL team met up with Tanner Van Vark at the Houghton Skate Park in Long Beach. They told him he had to film a First Look with the new issue of Thrasher, little did he know they were actually surprising him with a new AD in the mag! Check out how it all went down!
Skateboarding is unique in the fact that it remains open to anyone and everyone - Unity Skateboarding, based in Oakland, CA, is a project that supports and celebrates all queer and transgender people in skateboarding. They provide a platform for visibility and create inclusive and welcoming spaces for them to come together in the Bay Area and beyond. A portion of the proceeds from this board will go directly to the Transgender Law Center, a national trans-led organization, to support their continued efforts advocating self-determination for all people so they can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression.
The Real Team jumped in the van and hit the park before surprising K-Walks with a special guest artist board from his good homie Dakota Hunt.
Dan Mancina is no different than any skateboarder - he loves every second of it and doesnt let anything get in his way. While losing his eyesight at the age of 23 due to a degenerative eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa cast a spotlight on him in the skateboard community, he was already a strong part of it. After the first time he skated with the Real Team he was instantly a part of the crew. With Dans help they worked on a special Actions REALized board designed specifically for the visually impaired.
