Skater Focus – Steven Vera

By Rob Rodrigues, September 15, 2013

18 year old, Steven Vera, has been ripping as a sponsored longboard skater for over two years. His style is “crossing borders and bridging gaps”. This kid is binging his flavor to the table and earning longboard respect from all areas of the skateboarding industry. Vera is also making a big splash with younger skaters, might be because he’s super Rad and super Chill. Peep a couple SURE photos of the man on the rise to watch.
