Dan Plunkett.

Mental Skating.

Dan rides for Skate Mental, Huf, Spitfire, Stratosphere, and Thunder. Brad Staba turned him pro in 2012. He's into working on his motorcycle and has a degree in welding so he's got something to fall back on once the professional skateboarding days are done. Dan did a bluntslide down the giant hubba in front of the old Jim Kelly's Sports Grill in Buffalo in 2011 for a Spitfire ad.

Elwood was a clothing company started by Sal Barbier in the late 1990s. When he took the whole Aesthetics team over to Zoo York, that was the end of the brand for about a decade. Kenny Anderson resurrected Elwood in 2009 with a new team that included Dan Drehobl, John Rattray, and Anthony Pappalardo. It lasted a couple years before coming to an end again. There's an Elwood sticker on one of the ramps at my local skatepark.
