The Fiftieth Skateboard Donation

In my world, as long as there has been extreme sports there has been Lance Koch. From a YWCA kid’s skate camp, where Lance and I were literally the only kids at (as I recall they just dropped us off at the Kiwanis Park tennis court and said have fun), to burly, super-sick skiing, where Lance has always been a standout, if there’s an envelope to be pushed you can bet Lance is the one sending it.

These days Lance sells real estate with Berkshire Hathaway here in Missoula, takes amazing photos of the beautiful outdoor locations he finds when hiking or biking in Western Montana (just check out his page on the BHHSMT web page, linked above, to behold the awesomeness), and is raising three beautiful daughters…to be just as rad as their dad.

The Lance Koch skateboard design uses the old Tony Hawk Powell-Peralta theme with Lance’s own ski goggles and signature included. I played around with some busy plaid backgrounds, but once I tried just the solid black there was no going back!!!

It means a lot to have one of the pioneers of outdoor adventure donate a board. I only hope the lucky kid who received the Lance Koch can harness the powers therein and continue Lance’s rich tradition of bringing a higher level of stoke (than anyone even knew was possible) to every occasion. Thanks, Lance, you are a true living legend, man.

Sincerely,

SPM
