What more needs be said about a rugged and no frills type of human that lives and breathes skateboarding? Well, despite his steadfast love of rolling on a wooden stuntwood and creating the world renowned Burnside Skatepark along with others over 20 years ago, Red continues to design and build some of the best skateparks in the world. Sure, he’s gnar, he’s hesh or whatever label you might want to put upon him, but most importantly, Red is a lifer and he’s dedicated to skateboarding.
We’re stoked to have him in our camp, on the road with us, and out there doing his thing…for the pure love of it. Welcome aboard Red! We’ve got many miles ahead of us and plenty of fuel left in the tank!
Mark’s signature Lifeblood deck will be available to shred this summer.
