Meet Torus Jackson, Maribeth’s New Baby Boy

24 Aug

SURE Skateboards Instructor, Maribeth McHugh, takes a break from teaching to start a new family.

Maribeth and TJ

If you are a longtime friend or follower of SURE, you probably are familiar with Maribeth McHugh, marathon push skater and super popular SURE instructor for two plus years. Maribeth gave birth to a healthy baby boy this past May. The little guy’s name is, Torus Jackson, TJ for short.

Maribeth and TJ’s daddy, Jeffrey Vyain, moved from Brooklyn down to Hagerstown, Maryland to start their life with TJ. Hagerstown offers nearby rural outskirts and a better opportunity to live a holistic lifestyle, something dear to both Maribeth and Jeff.

What’s next for Maribeth? MB has recently started to get back on her board to do some casual distance skating. How could she not? Living with Jeff Vyain, a world class marathon distance skateboarder and the product designer for Bustin Boards, all things skateboarding are never far from this young family. In addition to riding again, Maribeth will also be doing some writing for Concrete Wave magazine. Reaching into her archive of experiences as a skate instructor and Longboarding New Yorker, MB will find inspiration to share with Concrete Wave’s global audience.

This is an amazing new journey for Maribeth, Jeff and Torus Jackson. SURE Skateboards will be keeping them close and constantly in mind as new horizons open up to spread the stoke and keep skateboarding accessible for everyone to enjoy.
