Top 5: Brandon Smith

Brandon Smith has been killing it since day 1. Known for his incredibly effortless looking blading, he will receive his very first Pro Skate from quality skate manufactures Valo this summer. Not only is he a great example of a Pro but he is also one of the most skilled photographers in the industry. Currently Brandon is hard at work filming for his new section in Valo’s next video “V”.
We are proud to have him as our first person doing the “Top 5”
