Whatever Skateboards Welcomes Jason Gallo, aka @babytooks, to the Whatever Team
Its time to reveal the latest addition to the Whatever Team: Jason Gallo! Welcome to the team! For those who haven’t seen his clips @babytooks (click and follow him!) you need to get on the Internet more because Jason has been live firing some of the most viral clips to hit the scene recently. Know for his hair raising drops, effortless park style, and comparison to the mighty Aaron Jaws Homoki We’re stoked to have snagged him and brought him on to Whatever.
The Clip Seen Round the World
You’ve caught his clips on Instagram (follow at @babytooks) getting reposted by some of the biggest accounts in the game, including our very own Whatever Skateboards Instagram, but here’s the mega viral clip that earned him his comparison to the legendary Jaws. If you haven’t seen this skate clip yet here’s your warning: this is INTENSE.
It’s not all massive drops and stomps for Jason Gallo, here’s a quickie park clip showing off how easy he makes it look. With effortless flow in the bowls and an undeniably smooth riding style you can see why we’re stoked to have @babytooks on the team.
Of course you do. Be sure to follow his account on IG @babytooks to keep up to date and definitely follow us @whateverskateboards for the best skate clips, skateboarding memes, and of course our contests and giveaways.
We’re always looking for ways to make our PB office more enjoyable, inspiring, and good spirited. We’re also always trying to embody our own mission to let people design whatever the F they want, and not just on skateboards. Especially when it comes to additions to the office, we want them to be saturated with our own inspirations and values, and NOT dry and corporate feeling- feelings that suck from past boring jobs that many of us know too well and now like to avoid like the plague.
One of the new projects we’ve started is transforming what was an ugly white wall with a great new hand painted mural. The mural depicts James Kelly doing a badass heel side slide on a downhill board. The picture is sick, and as soon as it’s done we’ll post all of the final photos and credits as soon as we get them. It’s already looking great and brings an awesome added energy to walking thru the front door every day. We’re so excited for it we couldn’t even wait until it’s done to blog about it :)
By a Skater, for Skaters
The mural is being painted by our #Whatever sponsored downhill skater and resident artist, Suigo Revilla. We told him to paint whatever the F he wanted, and this is what he chose. He has both chosen this photo (one of his favorites) and is painting the entire mural by hand.
Stay tuned for our upcoming events at our PB location to check it out in person. :)
Until then, Here’s a preview of this beautiful work in progress:
