Phil Shore on Kell:
Kelley Dawson! What can I say about him? Well considering that he is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. He makes a person feel welcome in his presence. As for his diet, I believe his internet obsession with Donovan Strain has his mind geared towards Welchs grape drink, which obviously adds to his pure steez and butteryness on a skateboard. Keeping in mind that the kid either lives off the chippy or a big ass bag of sweets!
He’s one of the most determined skateboarders out there. Always down to film a trick, always calling you to get down the local park for a sesh and he basically keeps the local crew together! Straight up, no slacking allowed! This guy is a real fucking skateboarder!!
