Armed with a resourceful eye, Omar Salazar has given skateboarding one of its most refreshing takes with regard to the possibilities our instrument is actually capable of. Never one to shy away from a sketchy spot previously deemed by others as too rough, too steep or downright too dangerous, Omar will find a way to jump over, on or through any object that catches his focus. With a creative approach that sees far beyond your typical blown-out skate spots, Omar’s mindset remains hell-bent on inspiring progression in whatever form or direction it chooses. Woo!
