If Willis Kimbel’s skateboarding feels freshly vintage it’s because he actually grew up in a time warp. Raised overseas by his father Curt, a former ‘70s pro skater, Willis had little access to skate media, even starting up on an antiquated board before returning to San Diego. Nomadically traveling the US to find the finest/worst ‘crete available, Willis advances bowl and park skating by being a student and pioneer of his discipline.
