Levi Green has figured out a way to live the skateboarders dream of skating different cities around the world. Recently, Levi has split his time between Vancouver in the summer, Mexico in the winter, and trips to California in between, skating amazing roads in perfect weather year round. All that time on board is evident in Levi’s relaxed style, while skating gnarly roads and chunder pavement. Levi is always down to skate, and his bags are always packed for the next adventure, which makes him a great addition to the Arbor team!
