RONNIE KESSNER – LINER NOTES
Growing up in a small town in New Jersey, Ronnie Kessner was set to head to Chiropractic school when he decided to take the window skateboarding offered. Fast forward to now and he's riding for Shane O'neill's company, April, and working on his own album. A while back we visited Ronnie to get a look into his process for making music and hear what he’s working on next.
The Sketchy Skateshop Appreciation Program
Mike Gigliotti came up with his shop shirt program, and we couldn’t help but be inspired. The Sketchy Skate Shop Appreciation Program is a part of our efforts and hopes to help a bit. Mark Gonzales donated the art and we created personalized, exclusive sketches for each skate shop.
Mason Silva is on REAL.
Yep, Mason Silva getting on REAL was supposed to come out a bit earlier, but the world had other plans and that’s ok. As you read this, we hope you and yours are doing well. Know that we’ll all be rolling together again soon, and when the team van hits the streets, Mason will be in it. Get a closer look at his first boards and more here. We'll see ya out there.
