Fast forward to March 2021 and Santa Cruz announces Jake as one of their new Pro ranking skateboarders. We were all stoked for the Camp Woodward star to finally remove the grom shadow and step into his adult pants officially with his first Pro Part for Santa Cruz Skateboards… and boy he didn’t let us down!
He rockets into the part just as we expected with high flying tranny antics and those smooth flowing lines we all know and love. Huge boosts and long rails slap us around for 7 mins and then lands the K.O. with a twisted ender at Burnside….
Great part Jake. Welcome to the Pro life!
