Tom started skating for Element in 2008 at just 8 years old.

Element presented Tom with his first board last night at surprise party at Tony Hawk’s indoor ramp in Vista, CA with the Element team, hundreds of family and friends. Tom signed limited edition boards that are available now on elementbrand.com right before boarding a flight to Australia to participate in the annual Bowl-A-Rama event in Bondi Beach.

Congratulations Tom! —

About Element Skateboards: in 1992, the Element seed was planted. Our goal was simple, to be the best we could be in the most honest and ethical way possible. We joined together to elevate what we all truly believe in. Today we continue to create the art, direction and message on the constant path to bring progress to skateboarding. We are more than a business; we are a family, all on the same journey for the growth within ourselves, Element and all that surrounds us. – Johnny Schillereff, Founder
