Introducing RESTOKER Jack Ichiro Benson January 7, 2018 20:55
We are so stoked to have Jack Ichiro Benson, an energetic and fearless
8-year-old thrasher as our first RESTOKER of 2018!
Jack hails from Los Angeles, CA and if you have the good fortune to meet him you can see in his eyes that he’s got the vibe and is truly stoked on skating!
Jack started skating when he was four, just cruising around the block in his neighborhood on the east side of Los Angeles. He went to his first skate park when he was five, and has been skating nonstop ever since. Jack skates street, but is inspired by street and bowl skaters alike. His biggest influences are Andrew Reynolds, Kevin 'Spanky' Long, and Julian Depalma.
When he's not skating he's drawing, watching movies, reading, eating Mexican food, and spending time with friends and family.
