Logan Marshall earns Bamboo Skateboards’ Tribal Chief status on Hookit!
Eleven year-old stoked to ride for the world’s leading sustainable skateboard company.
OCEANSIDE, CA—May 20, 2013: Logan Marshall, an eleven year-old skater from Red Bluff, CA, has become Bamboo Skateboards’ first level 3 ECO TRIBE Hookit rider of 2013.
Marshall, who has ridden for Bamboo Skateboards for three years, was invited to advance to level 3 Eco Chief on Hookit.com, the action sports social media site that helps emerging athletes find sponsors. Bamboo Skateboards has 502 riders from around the world on its ECO TRIBE team, which has four levels of sponsorship.
Marshall met all of the requirements including a strong commitment to representing Bamboo Skateboards. He also has an impressive 231,000 profile views and other sponsors such as Monster Energy drinks. In return, Marshall will receive tons of stickers, deep discounts on Bamboo boards, be the first to get new deck graphics and t-shirts, a variety of promotional materials, and extra schwag from other partnered companies.
Marshall has been skating since he was four and says that he loves riding for Bamboo Skateboards because of their dedication to sustainable manufacturing and social responsibility. “I have worked really hard outside of my actual skating to rep the Boo. The Boo is what I DO and skateboarding is my passion,” stated Logan.
Bamboo Skateboards president, Geoff Koboldt, is super excited to have Marshall as the company’s first Eco Chief in 2013. “Logan is the type of fan that any brand would be honored to be represented by. He continuously promotes Bamboo Skateboards relentlessly, has a positive attitude and rocks the boo at a ton of northern California contests.”
Marshall plans to keep riding but keeps things in perspective. “I hope to go pro some day but know that school is important as my backup plan,” he says.

About Bamboo Skateboards:
Bamboo Skateboards are manufactured from managed bamboo forests and help reduce the environmental impact against traditional maple manufactured skateboards, which often lead to maple deforestation. The boards are known for their strength, lightness and amazing POP, which is the #1 feature. The company has built into its corporate DNA a “100 decks for 1” program, in which every 100 decks sold earns 1 free skateboard to an at-risk youth. This is coupled with the fact that most decks are directly tied to benefit charities and non profits such as World Wildlife Fund, Red Cross, Grind For Life, Standup for Skateparks, Musicares, Surfrider Foundation, etc.
