Ben Shane aka Sunshine

He’s the “joker” of the team (if you’re into jokes about dicks) and has had it a long time coming. If you’re a cyclist, watch out cause Ben will come running after you like a buas!

I once took out a random cyclist when my board rolled off the sidewalk into her path. I wasn’t even skating. I was just watching her go by, then BAM she cycled into my board and sorta face-planted.

What do you do when you’re not skating?

I spend way too much time on 9gag.

Any advice for beginners reading this?

um… follow your dreams, eat your vegetables and don’t talk about your setup.
