DAILYNN HALUB

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!  .

GUY AZULAY

 

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! www.rockcreekfingerboards.com

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 ROSENTHAL

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!

SEVEN STRONG

Our March 2016 Skater of the Month is Seven Strong. Seven has been a familiar face at Skatelab for the last seven years. He’s been featured in countless Skatelab instagram videos and we think he’s one cool dude! Keep an eye out for this guy.. he’s killin’ it!

Check out some of the recent clips  of Seven at Skatelab

GAGE BOYLE

 

It’s hard to believe Gage slipped under our skater of the month radar for so long. Without a doubt, Gage Boyle is one of our best locals and the title of Skatelab SOTM comes long overdue! Gage is much more than just a local that rips. He’s making big moves and going places! With a bunch rad clips already out there and more in the works for 2016, Gage is holding it down! Truly another kid to come out of Simi Valley with a great talent and a promising future of skateboarding. Maybe there really is something special in that Skatelab drinking fountain water!

MAXWELL RYDER

We’re kicking off 2016 with Maxwell Ryder. Our January skater of the month! Not only does Maxwell’s pink pads and lime green shoe laces stand out, so does his skating! At just under 10 years old he’s showing the park whoose boss. Airing out of the bowl, boardslides down the rail, flip tricks around the park.. you name it, Maxwell has it down! With only 3 years on the board, he’s progressing quick! It will be interesting to see where the next few years take him.. We like Maxwell and you should too! Check out his instagram page and make sure to say hi when you see him at Skatelab.

Andrew Scott

 

Big ups to our December skater of the month, Andrew Scott! This young gun has been coming to Skatelab for at least 5 years and he’s been on our radar for awhile. At 14 years old Andrew is nailing hardflips down our 8-stair and front crooks on the rail. Kids like this just keep getting better and better! Not only is Andrew getting our attention, he’s also been getting some flow goods straight from Torey Pudwill and Grizzly.. not too many kids can say that! Andrew has a great attitude and a style of what reminds me of a young Alex Midler. Who knows, Andrew could be one of the next kids who comes out of Skatelab to make it to the big time. You know what they say… there’s something in that drinking fountain water! Check out Andrew’s instagram page to see some cool clips
