Growing up in a slow-paced city in Ohio may have made Kevin Terpening appear quiet, but his skateboarding exudes an expressiveness that feels informed and rife with wisdom. It’s been said that his incorporation of the step hop—specifically to LA schoolyard benches—fueled the trick becoming so prevalent to the point of trend, yet never recreated with his technicality. The larger theme of Kevin’s skating is that it’s a work in motion that finds the flow of an environment, whether it’s a curb, wall, or stair set, and peppers in the right trick for the moment.
