Dale Tan

Technical & Media Director

Dale has been in New York City going on 17 years. Originally from Seattle, WA, he grew up aggressive skating during his youth. After a 15 year hiatus, he put the skates back on during the pandemic stating, “Putting skates back on definitely kept me sane. It really allowed me to deal and escape from everything that was going on in my life during that time.”

 

Despite being an aggressive skater for so long, he really enjoys big wheeling in the city.
