Ryan Clarke

Ryan lives in the greater LA area and studies Kinesiology at Cal State Los Angeles. Being involved in his skateboarding community is only a part of Ryan’s story. This member of the Pharmacy Boardshop family absolutely rips, stays on the Dean’s List, and may just be your future physical therapist.

Nicolas Sablan

Nicolas attended Appalachian State University where he was deeply involved in saving the only local DIY skatepark there. After graduating and living in Colorado for some time, he is back to school to solve the world’s problems from Cornell University in New York. Earning his Masters in Labor Relations in Ithaca is a great next chapter for this very involved skateboarder.
