Anakin Senn | Welcome to the Team
We're hyped to welcome Anakin Senn to the Tactics family. As a Portland, OR local, we've connected with him at events and sessions over the years and have always loved watching him casually rip gnarly bowls and handrails with effortless style. His personality also resembles his skateboarding with quiet confidence and a humble attitude. There's a reason why he's known as @thegoodhomie_. Anakin has big things on the horizon and we're proud to help him push his skating in whatever direction he sets his sights.
Read below to get to learn more about Anakin Senn through past adventures, current favorites, and his recent part from Blood Wizard's Mythical and Magical.
