Simply put, Gavin Bottger is the future of skateboarding. After his dad took him to the skatepark for the first time at the age of five, the kid known as “Gavo” immediately fell in love and hasn’t stopped rolling since. After a few years of learning the ropes in his hometown of Lake Tahoe, California, his parents decided to sell everything and move to Oceanside for better weather and more skateparks to help further Gavin’s skating. The move paid off, as Gavin has used his skills and outgoing personality to collect an impressive list of sponsors and can regularly be found at the podium of high profile junior events around the world. On a rare day that doesn’t include skateboarding, you can find Gavo surfing, jumping on trampolines, or playing with his Legos.
