Welcome To The Team - Gabe Gorman

by Dan Bunn

He's been killin' it for years so we're hyped to announce that the young legend, Gabe Gorman, now skates for CSC. Welcome to the team mate!

Once again, we've teamed up with the good homies over at the Skateboarder's Companion for another one of our double-page ads but this time it's extra special. Our latest ad unveils our newest addition to the CSC Team: the young Dragon, Gabe Gorman. We've been stoked on Gabe's skating for years so we were hyped when he decided to leave his previous sponsor and come join the CSC team and what better way is there to celebrate than with a double-page spread?!

Gabe has been a staple of Cardiff skate events for as long as anyone can remember, often seen launching one of his signature kickflips over any obstacle in sight long after everyone else had given up skating. He's racked up an impressive resume despite his age; routinely dominating comps, going ham at events and even appearing on Blue Peter, all while still managing to get out and stack clips in the streets. Maybe the future ain't looking so bad after all.

For his first ever ad, Gabe has channeled some OG Baker vibes with a picture-perfect kickflip down a new Barry grass gap that could almost pass for a seaside Carlsbad Gap. He's had man-sized kickflips since long before he felt the touch of puberty and it's been sick to see him grow into his style as he's got older, so it made sense to use a pic of one of his textbook kickflips for his print debut.

Alongside the photo, we've also got some bangin' new artwork from the main man, Nat Jones, who's treated us to yet another instant classic. Nat has come through with a fresh take on our classic dragon graphic, this time featuring a baby dragon hatching from an egg to reflect Gabe's newly-earned, official Dragon status. If you're a fan of the graphic then we'd suggest keeping your eyes peeled as there may be something related coming soon...

That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to buy the latest clothing and skateboard decks from CSC and keep your eyes peeled for more from this young Dragon in the future! Safe.
