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

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 23It 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.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 31Everyone had to get their photo taken with the man of the hour.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 33Oh yeah boys, lets get him up there. Congrats Bone!

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 34But 60 dollars for a board ? That’s a little bit steep for Maaloof. Until next time!
