The release of SSM professional rider Gabriel Hyden‘s latest 666 section online for free, also resonnates as a farewell to the company, and pro skating in general. Busy touring with his band Vague and pursueing his career as a photographer and filmer, it is a logical step for Gabriel and although we will miss seeing him destroy on them blades, we sure are happy for him and wish him the best of luck! Thank you for everything Gabriel!
“Since I started out with a quote from him, I´m also going to end with one. Please continue to support Shima Skate Manufacturing and skating in general. This is the best thing that happened to my life and I will forever be thankful to all the People, the Stories, the Travels, the Moments of Joy… you made me what I am today. “One of the many pleasures of old age is giving things up.” – Malcolm Muggeridge This is for all the Folks that dont have Creditcards, Paypal or whatever, I want to share this with you. See you soon at any Session. Much love!” – Gabriel Hyden
