Trevor Thompson Goes Pro

It’s no surprise to us that Trevor “Bone” Thompson is WKND’s newest pro. His video parts speak for himself, but if you’ve seen him skate in person you know that he’s one of the most tastefully tech dudes out with a great eye for spots that most would quickly overlook. This past Saturday, WKND hosted a private get together at Kingswell in Los Feliz with some of Trevor’s closets friends for the release of his first pro board, featuring a classic WKND style skit to go along with it. Fueled by vegan doughnuts and copious amounts of free beer, the crowd was stoked to present Trevor with his first pro board. Congrats Bone, you deserve it! - Alex Papke

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 18The first taste of going pro never gets old.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 19But hey, its not for everyone.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 20Out front, we got Vegas boys Nick Michel and Robert Blazek, featuring Rob’s new hacky sack for slow days at the office.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 21Most versatile koozie of the night goes out to Kevin Shealy.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 23It gets to that point in the night when the other photographer has to grab your camera off your hip to take as many selfies as humanly possible. Some of your best work, Flynn.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 25I wasn’t lying when I said genuine hugs were big tonight.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 26Johans been to enough of these things to know the cliche poses that will always end up on the blogs.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 27Long time Florida homie Johnathan Flechas had to get his hands on the karate kid graphic.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 28Not a bad turnout at all.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 29If the board didn’t seal the deal, I’m pretty sure this is the icing on the cake.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 30A job well done to Mr. Trevor Thompson. Sully couldn’t be more proud.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 31Everyone had to get their photo taken with the man of the hour.

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 32And who not better to get a photo with then the legend himself, Matt Field!

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 33Oh yeah boys, lets get him up there. Congrats Bone!

BoneIsPro photoPAPKE 34But 60 dollars for a board ? That’s a little bit steep for Maaloof. Until next time!
