9/05/2018Corey Glick turned pro for Foundation Skateboards at Active Long Beach the other day. It was disguised as a team signing/newlywed gifting for Aidan Campbell and Cole Wilson. If you’ve been keeping up with Corey, you know he’s been smashing things up on King of the Road and his pro model is well deserved. Congrats, Corey!
