MC SKATE MASTER ASHLEY: PLAY ALL DAY!

“My deep love and affinity for skateboarding has shown me my own resilience and strength. It has also proved to be an incredible tool for my own therapy, self-expression, and pure joy!”

Vibing with Ronnie Toms

Ronnie’s cousin Gian got them into skateboarding when they were younger, but at the time they were way more into basketball.  “I was a poser.  I used to pretend that I skated in high school.  People asked me about tricks and I would be like ‘oh, yeah, that one,’ so then I decided to pick it up for real.”  Around 19 they really started getting into skating and that’s been a huge part of their life ever since.
