Skate The East Welcomes Tom Leary

We’ve been working hard on building a team of writers to bring you guys the best content possible surrounding the east coast longboarding scene, and are stoked to announce another awesome addition to the staff, Tom Leary.

Best known for his kickass filming and editing skills, Tom is one of the rising stars in New England and by far one of the gnarliest kids on and off the hill I know. He’s also quickly making a name for himself in front of the camera — riding for Nelson Longboards and Tiger Design Wheel Co. — with some of the smoothest and steezy switch toesides I’ve seen in a minute. He’s got some great insight on where the sport is, and where he thinks it’ll be going, as well as an impecable eye when it comes to videos. Tom will touch base on a variety of topics in his posts and will be a driving force behind some of our coming interviews with east coast riders. We’re hoping we can convince him to chef up a few videos for your viewing pleasure, too.

We’re super stoked to have him on board, help us give him a warm welcome and share the news with your friends with a Like or Tweet!

Skate The East Welcomes Molly Lewis!

Once again the title doesn’t leave much to the imagination on this one so we’ll cut to the chase: we’re super stoked to welcome Molly Lewis as our newest author here at Skate The East! For those of you who don’t know Molly you’ll soon be very familiar, not only because you’ll be hearing more from her here, but also because she’s easily one of the most talented ladies in the sport right now.

Hailing from North Carolina, Molly rides for Original Skateboards, Holesom Pucks, Socco Socks, Aussie Island Skate Shop and reps the east coast wherever she goes. We’re looking forward to hearing more about her numerous skate trips and thoughts in general and think she’ll be a perfect addition to the crew here! She’ll tell you a little more about herself in an intro post soon; until then join us in giving a big warm welcome to Molly!

Check out Molly taking the podium after winning the Ladies’ Freeride competition at the 3rd Annual Central Mass event.

Skate The East Welcomes Jake Wade!

Since the title doesn’t leave much to the imagination we’ll just come out and say it, we want to give a warm welcome to our buddy Jake Wade, who will be joining our editorial team. Jake’s primary responsibility will be to┬árejuvenate our long-slacking Events coverage, making sure you know when events on the east are coming up and the details you need.

Jake is one of the gnarliest shredders we have up here in the Northeast, and has made quite a name for himself with his channel on YouTube as part of Team Tangy. You’ve also seen him in various edits on our YouTube account and most recently at the end of our Loaded Chubby Unicorn review.

We’re super super stoked to have him as part of the staff and can’t wait to start bringing you the details of events that are coming up this season!
