Waylon‘s the definition of a true skate rat. He’ll know about a new spot before you do and he’ll skate it before anyone else even knows how to get the pin. During the day he's posted up at Surplus Distribution as an in-house sales rep, so he literally talks skating all day. Then once the shift is over he’ll head to his local San Marcos park and choose to shred all night. Sleep, wake up, and repeat. One thing's for sure, he fucking rips on and off a board and he’s logged enough hours to have a PHD in the skate industry. Looking forward to all the new footage he’s stacking.—Jordan Hoffart
