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.
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.

Whoa. Somehow, it’s almost gnarlier in photo form. Nyjah is gracing the cover of Transworld’s 2012 Buyer’s Guide in quite impressive form. I can’t remember the last time I smithed 2.4 stairs, let alone ten times that many. If you haven’t seen Nyjah’s RISE & SHINE part yet, do yourself a favor and treat yourself with an early present.

A Travel Well cruiser board is just the tool for a quick run to the liquor store or taco shack. If you catch an urge to shred along the way, they’re more than capable of enduring whatever you can throw at it, as proven by Tim Tim’s Berrics Bangin! clip.
Elemental Awareness hit the road to visit their friends on the Apache, Flathead, and Navajo reservations, where they were able to skate with the kids, and connect on a larger level…
