In Part 1 of the Animal Impulse Tour, we drove the length of California. We camped, made friends with the wildlife and skated some pretty epic scenery. Allow me to introduce just a few of the members of our crew as the journey continues in Part 2 from Oregon to Seattle.
Andy Dicker, (below) is the Director of Element Skate Camp. He's helped countless kids in the skate community let their passion be a bridge to camaraderie and influence. Through his work with Elemental Awareness, he's allowed them to connect more with nature. One of his many projects is the #sitwellcollection, which raised money to benefit the media program at Element Skate Camp.
He also has one of the most contagious laughs and makes it almost impossible to be in a negative mood. Follow him @yawnsnarlos for more of his happenings.
Skating is a dangerous game. It involves risk and dedication, something Richie (@colorblindbowen) certainly isn't lacking. Ripping a very important appendage on a dumpster and having to spend the night in the emergency room is enough to make us cringe, but not Richie. He took center stage and wrote enough relevant material to perform three stand up comedy routines the next day.
