Continuing Tradition with Amir Denis
Amir Denis is a young, energetic skateboarder from Boca Raton, Florida. His lively attitude when he skates echoes around the skate park which draws every skater over to play a game of skate. Chances are he’ll win.
This 17-year-old ripper is not someone you’d want to escape your radar. With influences from his pops and pro skater Rowan Zorilla, his style emerges into this powerful and precise skating machine. If he keeps going at it, I bet with my own money he will become skating’s next most influential athlete.
