Kevin was one of the top freestyle skateboarders in the world, right behind his teammate at Powell Peralta, Rodney Mullen. He is from Richmond, British Columbia. His style of skating involved a lot more rolling with manual variations and board flips, instead of just doing tricks in one place. Kevin opened the Richmond Skate Ranch in 1986, which featured a number of interconnected mini ramps. This park would be the home base for skaters such as Rob "Sluggo" Boyce, Colin McKay, and Rick Howard. Kevin also started Ultimate Skateboards, a distribution company for gear. He is still doing that today. Kevin also still skateboards and even enters the occasional freestyle contest.
