Lib Tech is stoked to be working with NW ripper Sky Siljeg. Sky grew up in the NW just like we did. We have watched him grow from that long blond haired, young skate kid with endless energy, a permanently positive attitude, a super supportive mom and family to that young, long blond haired skate kid with endless energy and a permanently positive attitude and super supportive mom and family. We have noticed he seems to skate a lot better than anyone who builds the skates and snowboards here at Mervin. Sky is actively involved in giving back to the community in many ways, competing in the World Cup Bowlriding series and creatively shredding the environment he finds himself in. You could say he is the nice guy, but these days he’s skating way too committed and aggressive to be nice.
