Daniel Lutheran

Toy Machine’s newest am Daniel Lutheran aka Dan Lu caught everyone’s attention with the lead part in Toy Machine’s Brain Wash DVD.

It seemed as soon as his part ended with the massive frontside 50-50 down what looked like a 1000 stair handrail he was a household name and fully on Toy Machine, Vans and Vans Apparel and deservedly so. Daniel’s skating has given the people of Albuquerque something else to be proud of aside form cactus and green chili stew. His energy shines as bright as the desert sun and his positivity is infectious to everyone around him. We anticipate him having a long and storied career with Vans.
