Ian is arguably the most laid-back scooter rider we’ve ever met. He has a style that makes everything floaty and effortless. Maybe it has something to do with the altitude in Colorado… anyway, we’re stoked to have Ian on board with PROTO!

We were first introduced to Jake through the Hella Grip homies. Even though he was super young and went by the nickname “squirrel” you could tell he was going to be a ripper. Jake is one of the most talented scooter riders we’ve ever come across. There are only a few guys that can execute whatever trick comes to their mind and on any terrain. Watching him ride a spot is like a one man show, you never know what he’s going to throw down next. We’re hyped to have Jake as a part of PROTO, and can’t wait to see his progression continue.

It’s always rad to see young riders emerge from your local scene and since PROTO was founded in Vista, California we naturally are beyond hyped to welcome another local Vista ripper to the ranks! . Gerardo “Garfield” Gonzalez made a name for himself after dropping his Fun N Eazy part for Freestyle Depot which is what put him on the PROTO radar. Gerardo just turned 15 but his age is deceiving after you watch him ride. With a completely relaxed style and a no-fear approach when it comes to hitting big spots and taking big slams, Garfield is here to get it done!

We were first introduced to Andy back at the 2nd Annual Chicago Street Jam in 2012. A relatively unknown rider at the time, Andy came and tore up every spot the jam had to offer, leaving the event with the “Best Overall” title and putting himself on the PROTO radar ever since. This is Andy’s first real part out in the streets and he has put in a lot of work filming it. We’re stoked to see how far he’s come and what he’ll bring to team in the future!

Kirk Svensson is our only rider hailing from the midwest scene. When it comes to filming a video part, one could consider him an auteur. He’s heavily involved in all aspects of the video and you can tell his personality shines through his riding. We’re stoked to have Kirk as a part of the crew and to see what he’ll bring to PROTO.
