Moving from Liverpool, England, to Huntington Beach, California, at the age of 18, Geoff Rowley quickly created a fanbase. An amazing technical street skater, unafraid to risk it all on larger terrain, he featured on the cover of Transworld Magazine in just two weeks. He would go on to accumulate incredible video parts and multiple accolades like being named Skater of the Year in 2000 by Thrasher and ranked the 26th most influential skater in 2011 by Transworld. An avid outdoorsman, Geoff is passionate about wildlife conservation and is a hunting guide and company owner of knife and tool manufacturing company, CIVILWARE. – C.
