Gabriel Hyden CO International Team Introduction Edit

Gabriel's skating is proper in so many different ways. Since his first days in the international spotlight, coming from his homeland of Austria, he's been presenting himself and skating at a very high level of maturity. Whether it's gnarly stunts, skateparks, or just shredding, he approaches everything with his trademark speed, fluidity, and refined style. Gabe simply kills everything and anything put in his path. We couldn't be happier to have him as part of the C.O. team ranks. -Hakeem Jimoh

In Depth: Gabriel Hyden

As I got to know Gabriel Hyden we were like 13 or 14 years old. We got in touch through a msgboard where he was more than just an active user. Back then everyone knew him as 'Gape' and lots of people made fun of him when he started his own clothing company back then. The first time we met up was shortly after that when we went on a two week skating vacation in Austria. There it happened, he fully got me.
