Raven was an am for Creature and Lakai. He's a transition and pool shredder with deep family ties to skateboarding. I'm a fan of how he skates everything like it's a three foot mini ramp.
Following a couple of phone calls with Rick Howard about riding for Chocolate, Raven was put on the team. This was when Chocolate was adding some amateurs, including Stevie Perez and Elijah Berle. Along with Vincent Alvarez and Cory Kennedy, the crew would become the next generation for Girl and Chocolate. The new ams acquired the name Trunk Boyz. Rick McCrank coined the title because they were always partying in the back of the van. The Trunk Boyz were featured heavily in Pretty Sweet, causing some minor disappointment from those looking to see footage from the veteran guys.
I've watched most of Pretty Sweet a couple of times in the last few weeks and I'm still left wondering who Will Arnett is.
