Martin is a life long slalom skater and renowned snowboard instructor who may also be in charge of your flight crew if you are on a Delta flight!
I met Martin many years ago skating in Hove, UK and we have been friends since. I’m delighted to have this high speed Gentleman on the team and representing Decent Hardware where ever he goes!

Russell is an experience! A huge hearted fun loving family man and skateboarding Animal. Whatever the terrain, whatever the day Russell is the Man that makes the session. He is also a great personal friend and perfect ambassador for our sprit here at Decent Hardware. He lives in Bend Oregon now with partner Renee and son Cash. “I’m riding an 8.5 OMA on Indi 159’s with whatever bearings I can find that I haven’t busted yet. With Pi wheel size 56.5(no shit) and I like to be blurred in photos and take long walks in the forest.” Pics thanks to Coburn Huff.
Jean is a lot of things to a lot of people! Mother, inspiration, friend, singer, ripping pool skater and scene motivator to name a few. From the surf scene in Ocean City to the Arizona desert and over to the West Coast she is a wave of enthusiasm at every session. Jean and her husband Steve took me in as a stray when I first skated in America and kept me for 3 months! They are as much family to me as my own blood and I am extremely proud that Jean reps & uses Decent Hardware everywhere she rolls!
Hailing from Malaysia, Grace won the gold medal on SEA Games 2019 in Manila.
National skateboard athlete Grace Wong Sze Ern pulled off an upset to claim gold for Malaysia in the women’s downhill event at the 30th SEA Games today.
Grace beat three other participants, including two from the host nation, in the final round at the Seaside Race Track, Maragondon, Cavite to give Malaysia a surprise gold.
Thailand’s Nuansamorn Pimchua claimed the silver while Grace Rydelle Abarico of the Philippines won the bronze.
Team manager Idroose Tambarin said Grace started the race well and executed the corners smoothly on the 1.7km track.
“The sprints and good corner executions by Grace threw the host nation’s athletes off rhythm and allowed Grace to win. In the semi-final stage, she finished second to just qualify for the final round.
“Our target for Grace was only silver because it was a tough fight in the event. In the early round it was already very competitive, what more in the final when the hosts have two athletes taking part,” he said.
Another national skateboard athlete Luqman Hakimi Ahmad Shahrafidz won the bronze in the men’s downhill event.
The Philippines achieved a one-two finish through Rafael Jaime De Lange and Raphael Duke Pandeagua respectively. — BERNAMA
