Tate Kokubo

Posted by Chris on Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Fourteen-year-old Tate Kokubo is the epitome of what it means to have fun on your skateboard. Period.
His take on skateboarding reminds me of the days of old when kids had no agenda about getting sponsored, how many views their YouTube page has, or who is going to hook them up.
Hailing from Arlington, Massachusetts, Tate has been taking a unique approach to shredding before the age of 10.
He skates anything and everything around him, and he does it with a big smile on his face. At his young age, the sky is the limit , and he takes it all in stride. All he wants to do is skate, skate, skate and have a blast doing it.
Matix appreciates his take on skateboarding and for that reason he is a true Ambassador of the Matix brand out here in New England.
