Ripper of the Week: Braeden S. | #catcharip
Congratulations to #RipperoftheWeek, Braeden S., from Beaverton, OR! Nothing better than seeing the next generation out there stacking clips in the streets, especially when they have style beyond their years! We've got a Tactics Base Camp deck, a sheet of Tactics griptape and some other goodies heading his way! Check the Q&A below and follow @braedensalinas for more shreddin'!
Keep your entries coming and you could be next week's winner! Remember, winners aren't chosen by their skill but by their creativity, style, stoke, and most importantly, how much fun they're having.
What's good Braeden? How long have you been ripping for?
I've been skating for 6 years, since I was 8 years old.
Favorite spot to #catcharip?
I really love to #CatchARip at PCC Cascades.
What's the story behind your winning post?
Those were some clips from my street part, Lost Boys. It was filmed all around Portland. My homie, Jason Lee, filmed and edited this whole thing by himself, I really appreciate his patience and hard work that he put into this street part.
Any thanks, shoutouts, or things you'd like to add?
I wanna give a big thanks to my parents and homies for supporting me so I can keep skating. Especially my homie, Jose Martinez, he would always hype up the skate sesh and would hardly miss a day.
