Apparently Brian Delatorre is riding for Habitat Skateboards. Solid gets solider. Danny Garcia, Silas Baxter-Neal, Stefan Janoski, Tim O’Connor, Kerry Getz, Austyn Gillette, Fred Gall, Daryl Angel, Guru Khalsa and now this dude too? That’s a team and a half.
Dude is pretty amazing. Peep his recent Welcome to MIA part for the evidence. Super solid, powerful, fast and best of all he is a really classic street skateboarder. I mean, his approach is to attack the street. More “classic East Coast.” I mean, there is nothing cutesy about the way this dude skates. And there is a lot of cutesy skating going down these days. Straightforward, aggressive. I dig it.
There’s room for everyone and all styles, but there is something so good about watching dudes that just charge. Brian Delatorre, Chewy Cannnon, Dennis Busenitz, Silas Baxter-Neal…..
Just for good measure here is a recent Habitat demo at Orchard Skateshop.
