Ben is the coolest guy off the board and a legit terminator on one—an all around skater. Not only does he resemble Thor in appearance, but when he’s skating, he’ll be putting down hammers without even realizing it. One of those natural guys who were supposed to ride a skateboard. Keep shining brother.—Wade Desarmo
