Black Box is proud to announce the addition of professional skateboarder Ben Gilley to the Zero Team. With his unmistakable style of skateboarding, Ben is a perfect addition to Zero and the Black Box family. Gilley has delivered amazing video parts since his debut in 2001 and most recently in the 2005 independent release “Reason to Believe. 

Ben is currently residing in Alabama and will split his time between Birmingham and San Diego as he continues to film and shoot photos for upcoming projects. The release date of Ben’s first Zero pro model has yet to be determined. 

Jamie Thomas says of the addition; “Ben epitomizes the heart and determination that Zero was founded on. I find his raw skate style an inspiration and a perfect fit for Zero. 

Ben added,I’ve always felt like an unofficial Zero team rider because I’m friends with everyone at Zero and Black Box. I was packing boxes for Zero a few years ago and now I’m on the team… It’s amazing! 

Look for updates and footage of Ben in the near future on Zeroskateboards.com. 

The 2006 Zero Team is: Jamie Thomas, Chris Cole, John Rattray, Jon Allie, James Brockman, Ben Gilley, Tommy Sandoval, Tony Cervantes, Garrett Hill, Keegan Sauder and Sheldon Meleshinski.
