Trevor Thompson Goes Pro
It’s no surprise to us that Trevor “Bone” Thompson is WKND’s newest pro. His video parts speak for himself, but if you’ve seen him skate in person you know that he’s one of the most tastefully tech dudes out with a great eye for spots that most would quickly overlook. This past Saturday, WKND hosted a private get together at Kingswell in Los Feliz with some of Trevor’s closets friends for the release of his first pro board, featuring a classic WKND style skit to go along with it. Fueled by vegan doughnuts and copious amounts of free beer, the crowd was stoked to present Trevor with his first pro board. Congrats Bone, you deserve it! - Alex Papke
Right off the bat, Big Al’s gotta make his beer money for the night off of Zac Gracie.
The warehouse boys brought the goods.
Including a 1 of 1 bone board for Trevor.
First ones out front, WKND’s hottest new am Caleb McNeely and Vistas Tanner Burzinski.
Not to mention shop owner and tonights host DJ Chavez.
No matter how many of these things Grant has to do…
Technical difficulties never come easy.
It’s no secret that Jojo and Deana love the bone.
There is no better way to Trevor’s heart than a box of vegan doughnuts.
Free beer: a must for any skate event.
Even if you don’t drink anymore!
First things first
Now that the boards are on the shelf, WKND warehouse workhorse Thomas Goldman is straight to double fisting.
Atlanta in the house featuring none other than masterlensman Ryan Flynn and the man with arguably the best front bigspin, David Clark.
Genuine hugs were a big thing tonight.
Everyone wanted a photo with Bone!
But most importantly, Maaloof just wanted his piece of the vegan doughnuts.
The first taste of going pro never gets old.
But hey, its not for everyone.
Out front, we got Vegas boys Nick Michel and Robert Blazek, featuring Rob’s new hacky sack for slow days at the office.
Most versatile koozie of the night goes out to Kevin Shealy.
Photog Dakota Mullins and part time skateboarder, full time party boy Alan Krohn.
It gets to that point in the night when the other photographer has to grab your camera off your hip to take as many selfies as humanly possible. Some of your best work, Flynn.
Gordo caught red handed out front with 2019’s hottest vaping trend.
I wasn’t lying when I said genuine hugs were big tonight.
Johans been to enough of these things to know the cliche poses that will always end up on the blogs.
Long time Florida homie Johnathan Flechas had to get his hands on the karate kid graphic.
Not a bad turnout at all.
If the board didn’t seal the deal, I’m pretty sure this is the icing on the cake.
A job well done to Mr. Trevor Thompson. Sully couldn’t be more proud.
Everyone had to get their photo taken with the man of the hour.
And who not better to get a photo with then the legend himself, Matt Field!
Oh yeah boys, lets get him up there. Congrats Bone!
But 60 dollars for a board ? That’s a little bit steep for Maaloof. Until next time!
