It’s a rare thing these days, in the age of the internet and all, when you can honestly say an amateur skater paid his dues to earn what he’s got, but for Nick Garcia, there’s nothing truer than that. Skating his ass off, and getting noticed the old fashioned way… “The harder you work the luckier you get” and with that said, we are proud to introduce Element’s newest pro, Nick Garcia.
Here’s a look back at Nick’s skating through the years, including video highlights, articles exposure, magazine covers, and his most recent footage and first pro ad… Congratulations Nick, you deserve it.
The Nick Garcia collection consists of the Welcome and Blue Collar boards, a cruiser shaped by Nick, and limited edition shirt. Everything is available in the Element store and at your local shop, so stock up now.
This years “MAKE IT COUNT” contest series has been incredible, so I was really looking forward to seeing what the Europeans had in store. While our main focus was the Europe Make It Count finals, we couldn’t just sit there and allow our down time in Berlin to slip away. We were out for a good time, and having a solid crew is essential. In this case, nobody missed a beat; everyone was down to skate, lurk the streets at night or make up ridiculous songs on the guitar and sing them at the tops of our lungs. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some good ‘ol America, but I miss Berlin already. Here are some Prints and Polaroids from our adventures in Berlin:

Can’t wait till next year.
Julian Davidson and Nick Garcia came up with this special set of Travel Well cruiser boards, called “Day Trippin’”. Designing them was one thing, but what came next was the fun part; hitting the streets. Nick and Julian headed off to Skate Camp, and took the long road to get there. From bombing hills and crushing rocks to flatground and mini ramps, these boards are truly all terrain vehicles.
