Trip One Skaters

Ari Mannis

Hello. My name is Ari Mannis. I’m 22 years old and I am in my last year at UCSC. I can’t wait to skate this summer because it’s what I live to do. I have been skating for just a few years but despite the short time I have been skateboarding, I have grown to love it. This trip will not only be an amazing challenging skating experience but it will help raise money for a good cause. By creating this website, and going on the trip, I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and to help others in need, while having fun and doing what they love.

Jon Andrews

Hey I’m Jon I’m 22 years old and met Ari at college where we were roommates and good friends when he told me his idea to skateboard across America to raise money for a at-risk youth I said “Where do I sign up.” Next year I will be going to Cal State Northridge and I will be an EMT. I think this will be a great experience to accomplish before starting school. I love to skateboard, and make music. I hope to make a great documentary along the way.



Dahnny Levine


Hey, I’m Dahnny, I’m 21 years old, and I’ll be transferring from SFSU to George Washington University. When I found out that I’d be skating, spending time with some cool people and seeing new places while supporting a great cause, I had to sign up. This is going to be an experience of a lifetime and I can’t wait to get it going.
