Roll With The Acostas
Kennan Scott - M / 42 / Oakland
Husband, father to two boys, and traumatic brain injury survivor, Kennan uses skating for mental and physical health. Always community-focused, Kennan was drawn to Fruittech’s dedication to non-traditional pro athletes. A pillar and activist in his community, Kennan is a icon in the blading world and has been doing it all longer than you've been alive.
Blading On The Brain
Jeremy Troia - 38 / M / Detroit
With FruitTech since it's inception, Jeremy is a husband, BL8DAD, Ulcerative Colitis warrior, and a true street & park shredder.
He's also a pro"fresh"onal rollerblader.
Amber Rivera - 27 / F / New York
Shredding the South Bronx and surrounding boroughs since her youth, Amber uses rollerblading to challenge herself physically and mentally. It takes confidence and drive to land tricks outside of your comfort zone, just like it does to finish college and pursue a career in medicine!
Danny Thepsouvanh - 37 / M / Edmonton
Danny's skating mostly consists of AO topside acids, sprinkled amply throughout all of Western Canada. At the ripe young age of 37, Danny believes in FruitTech's blader-forward approach and wants to help cultivate the community-spirit it represents. This is most reflected in his work with Shredmonton Inline, a non-profit, community-focused inline skating association based in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.
Sprout Community Riders
Bryce Butler - 8 / M / Alberta (April 2nd-May 17th 2021)
Soaring high out of Shredmonton, Bryce is our first Sprout and International rider. The future holds nothing but promise for this little dynamo!
Laura & Lea - 10 / Fs / Switzerland (October 15th - December 1st)
One day, Laura & Lea saw a ramp in an abandoned skatepark and immediately knew they had to try it! These girls love to skate - sometimes as much as 20 hours per week! Fun is always first for them, as their smiles and infectious positivity can attest.
Stefan Vajsabel - 14 / M / Edmonton (Feb. 4th, 2022 - March 20th, 2022)
Stefan is a straight ripper! Another member of the Shredmonton Crew, he's a skier, mountain biker, Hockey player, Volleyballer, street & ice skater, and a math whiz! Whew! This future is bright for this grinder!
Sophia Rae - 9 / F / Texas
Sophia was born a rebel at heart! She started skating to spend time with her family, but fell in love with with the community and the positive vibes. She challenges herself everyday to be better than the day before. Her personality is as infectious as a grape vine and sweeter than a watermelon. We are excited to see her shred and support her on her journey!
