Robby Williams – Thousand Oaks, CA

Why do you skate?

I haven’t mastered it yet. I can still go out and learn new tricks and there will never be a time when I run out of tricks to try and that’s what makes it fun.

What are some of your other passions and interests?

I like building and fixing things, camping, dirt biking, mountain biking and learning useless talents that require coordination and balance.

Sto Strouss – Los Angeles, CA

Why do you skate?

I skate because skateboarding is my biggest creative outlet. It challenges my mind and body, has led me to amazing places, and introduced me to the most remarkable people in the world. It’s the reason I wake up in the morning, and it’s all I think about. I love skateboarding, it’s a good life!

What are your other passions and interests?

Acting – I love acting, performing, being on stage, on camera, and being in character. I live in Los Angeles and audition for movies, TV, commercials, Theatre, and anything else that comes my way.

Comedy – I’m an Improv comedian, I’ve performed all over LA for 5 years in different improv troops.  My improv friends bring me so much joy on a regular basis because all of them are so funny and talented. Laughter is one of the greatest gifts to share with people and I’m glad I have a supportive family of people that inspire me to share that gift.

Snowboarding – a cousin to skateboarding, snowboarding is another passion of mine.  There’s just nothing like gliding down a mountain of fresh powder on a beautiful day.  I also taught as a snowboarding instructor for 3 years at Perfect North Slopes, and that was one of the greatest jobs I’ve had in my life.

Stunts – Skateboarding led me into the stunt world through auditioning, so I have been blessed to book a touring stunt show called Marvel Universe Live where I was trained to do many stunts including high falls, air ram, and combat. It took a little to adjust but its a lot like skateboarding, its your job to fall down!!!

Karaoke – Some know me as “Chicago Stu.” while I was on tour I sang at as many karaoke bars across the nation as I could. I also do Karaoke a lot in LA and have competed as well. Karaoke is good sloppy fun with friends at a bar, and is always a good time. It’s also great practice for singing auditions!

Greg Doerfler – Paoli, PA

Why do you skate?

“Skating has always been a creative outlet to me and a way to get some exercise while blowing off steam. It’s oddly individual and social, not to mention challenging and rewarding. Learning new tricks requires hard work and concentration, while connecting a bunch of stuff you have down pat can be relaxing and mindless. Basically, skateboarding can be whatever you want it to be – a world of possibilities at your feet. I think skateboarding is kind of unique that way. Skateboarding has been really good to me.”

What are some of your other passions and interests?

“1) My awesome wife, Lauren!

2) Music – I love playing the piano and organ as well as writing works for others to perform.

3) Computers – they’re like people but don’t talk back.”

Daniel Trujillo – Las Vegas, NVdaniel

Why do you skate?

“I skate because I enjoy creating, combined with the fact that there are no rules, allows for seemingly endless combinations of possible tricks. I paint, edit video, 3d print, laser cut, and make costumes, but skating allows for me to do something creative, and athletic simultaneously. I’m honestly obsessed with skateboarding. So much that it seems difficult for me to even explain why.”

What are some of your other passions and interests?

“Skateboarding, acting, video editing, 3d printing, laser cutting, video editing, reading, Linux, flint knapping, robotics, making rap music, helping others.”
