Riley Boland grew up in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains, which must have inspired him to seek out maximum air on his skateboard. Contest wins from coast to coast, along with video parts in Suplex, Lo-Def, Norbeece, and more have shown the world what Riley can do.
Riley is a guy that’s comfortable in his own skin, as well is in his sometimes-random clothing choices. For a long time it was Slip-ons and flared jeans, then it was that handmade leather vest, and now it’s the Willie Nelson double braids. Starting out with a rickety, tight and abrupt mini-ramp is his garage set Riley on a path of utter adaptability to any terrain. Blasting airs while everyone else is only scratching grinds, making things happen on his own time, and always having fun wiggling around on his loosey-goosey trucks, Riley is a guy you want to skate with, watch skate, and hang out with afterwards. A solid character that’s gotten better with age.
