Aloe from longwood skateboards and Grinding for Groms Skate Camp

The past couple of years I've gotten to know Alejandro (Aloe), the maker of longwood skateboards. Aloe has been working in the communication department since graduating from Flagler. He's done video's for MTV, has worked in the radio field for some years, and is now just hanging in St. Augustine hand-shaping his own skateboards and taking care of his beautiful family. I see him, his son Hopper (6), and his wife Renee, at a skatepark nearly everyday. Aloe is a great man to know in the Skateboard industry. He's always hooking up kids and rippers with new boards, he just helped make the city extend the Upchurch Skatepark hours, now open from sunrise to sunset,  and now he has his own skate camp here this summer, called Grinding for Groms. Aloe and his family are a pleasure to meet... get to know them... AND check out his camp this summer that I'll be helping out with....
