This new segment has been a fun one and now that we’ve let it marinate for a little, I think we have a solid format.

Heavy Riders Club will be added to the homepage and you get the chance to learn more about our Veteran Spotlight Community Members with a blog post each time we have a new Spotlight.

I will start with this:

Jake is a great fucking guy!

However, things didn’t start off so kosher. I don’t get too involved in our vetting process when it comes to bringing on new Veteran Owned efforts because I leave that to the many Veterans that are a part of Skateboarding Saves.

Jake was lucky enough to undergo our rock solid vetting process when it comes to vetting any Military related efforts due to other shit bags that momentarily tarnished his good name.

So, he passed our vetting!

It’s been nothing but getting to business since.

This may be the third or fourth collab item we have put together and every time it comes together so naturally like being at your most beloved skate spot and it’s one take to put down a trick.

Heavy Riders Club is a place where “Heavy” isn’t bad. All sizes and all skill levels welcomed! No judgment, no bullshit, just skating and having a good time.

The mission of Heavy Riders Club goes beyond Skateboarding by promoting both Physical and Mental Health.

The goal is to never Stop Pushing!
