Senior Ian Corey is the definition of a skater. He knows about all the spots to go, all about good boards, and how to do the coolest tricks.

“The nollie is like a regular ollie but backwards and your feet are in the opposite direction and then you do a kickflip so the board doesn’t flip,” Corey said.

Corey has quite the collection of skateboards. He’s been through a number of boards in an effort to try and perfect his tricks.

“I have fourteen but only one of them isn’t broken,” Corey said.

Sophomore Saehim Kim has been skateboarding for almost a year now. He has progressed pretty fast for the amount of time he’s been skating. He’s got a few tricks up his sleeve that are sure to knock your socks off. 

“The coolest trick that I can repeatedly do is probably a varial but the coolest one I’ve ever done is a no comply 180 off a three stair that was sick!” said Kim.
