Say hello to our January Skater Of The Month. Demitry Dupont. This Simi local has been shredding the Lab for the last 15 years!

Bryant Dunkel

Bryant Dunkel closes out 2016 as our December Skater of the Month. This Simi transplant and overnight local can hold it down. This dude is constantly hammering new lines and nailing new tricks. Keep an eye out for Bryant ripping the Lab. He’s always here!


Our November Skater of the Month is awarded to Austin Cowdrey. This achievement comes long overdue as Austin has been a friend of Skatelab for years! His skating is always moving forward.and his skills are starting to shine. He might not be the loudest voice out there but his skating speaks for itself. Keep shredding Austin!!




Huge shout out and happy birthday to our October skater of the month, Stella Reynolds! We first met Stella just 6 months ago and she’s been a familiar face at Skatelab ever since. Not a few days goes by where we don’t see Stella cruising the ramps, learning new tricks and having fun with friends. We’re stoked to see another young rider swept up by the world of skateboarding. Keep it up Stella!




Congratulations to our September skater of the month, Dailynn! Our first girl SOTM but surely not the last. When you see Dailynn around the park make sure to say hi! With only a little over a year on the board she’s certainly came a long way and we’re sure Dailynn has a long road of skateboarding ahead. Keep on rolling Dailynn!  .




Our July SOTM is local ripper Guy Azulay. We’ve only known Guy since last year but this young dude has literally became an overnight local. Guy’s got some great skills and a clean style. It’s pretty rad to see a 14/15 year old throwing hardflips down our 8 stair. Not only does this guys skateboarding speak for itself, he’s also doing some cool stuff off the board. Check out Guy’s fingerboard company. It’s top notch!

At the end of the day, Guy is one cool dude and we’re stoked to call him a Skatelab local.
Keep on rollin’ Guy!


Kai is a pretty well known dude around the Lab! He’s been coming to Skatelab for the last few years. Kai can be seen nailing tricks in front of the camera and also behind the camera as he films tons of rad clips! Giving Kai the SOTM crown has been a long time coming. We are proud to support this young rippers skating and grateful to have Kai’s support as well. Keep up the good work Kai! Can’t wait to see what the next few years on the board has in store for him!

Wade Baker

Our May skater of the month is longtime local Wade Baker. We’ve seen wade go from 7 to 17 over the last decade and he totally rips!! We’re stoked to see Wade continue riding at Skatelab and on the streets. Keep up the good work Wade!

Chris Weissmann

Our April Skater of the month is Chris Weissmann. This skateboard wielding, Black Sabbath listening ripper is coming in blazing! Chris and his family have been longtime locals and friends of Skatelab for over a decade. Chris, or sometimes better known as Crusty, grew up the same way all the younger Lab Rats did. Learning new tricks at the Lab, meeting new friends and sharing the love for Skateboarding. Now into his 20’s, Chris is killing the streets and the park. Always with such an enthusiastic and outgoing attitude.

I personally remember when Chris and his brother first visited Skatelab.. It was at least a dozen years ago. He showed up with the smallest most worn down wheels I had ever seen. They must have been worn down to a 35mm. These things were not much bigger than the bearing.. I’ll  never forget how worn down those things were.. LOL!! Still to this day, we have those old wheels.around here somewhere.

Chris has been getting a little action from ATM and Acid Wheels for sometime and now in talks with Globe. He’s grabbing a lot of attention lately. Check out his Instagram and see for yourself.
We rep this dude 100% and are stoked that Chris calls Skatelab home. Even more proof that there is truly something special in that Skatelab drinking fountain water!
