DATE OF BIRTH

ON VANS SINCE
AS ONE OF CHOCOLATE SKATEBOARDS’ NEWEST PRO ADDITIONS, 18-YEAR-OLD ELIJAH IS WASTING NO TIME IN CEMENTING HIS PLACE IN SKATE LORE.
In his first years on the Vans team, he managed to win Tampa AM, get onto the cover of Transworld, Skateboarder and The Skateboard Mag and earn TSM’s 2012 Year’s Best Am, as well as drop a break out part in “Pretty Sweet.” All things considered, we’d wager that his might be one of the fastest trajectories in skateboard history. With the reports of the next level gnar he’s filmed for his upcoming part in the Vans video, it looks like these next couple of years will be as fruitful as the first few.
