I would like to welcome the first recruits to the Skate-Parts.Com team, Mikky Joesphson and Ivan Vargas! If you see them around Brisbane or elsewhere say hey - they might have some stickers for you, and keep an eye out for the profile pages that will be online soon!
Ivan and Mikky also skate for the Drawing Boards Australia team, so if you are somewhere in rural Queensland or elsewhere in Australia you might get a chance to catch them on one of their rural tours as well.
Recently the Drawing Boards crew hit up Charleville and Goondiwindi on their Outback QLD Tour with skaters Ivan Vargas, Mikky Josephson, Jack Ward, Darth, Donny Fraser and their new team rider, Flynn Bundy. Check out the vid below!
