When I first met Thaynan Costa, we were both being shipped to a ghost city in Inner Mongolia / China. One of his sponsors sent us there to skate this random place for 10 days. I had heard of him before, but I didn’t really know who he was. I think at the time he was around 17 years old, maybe 18. It took us about four years to meet again, but this time we decided to meet on more common ground. Recently Enjoi surprised him with his pro-board and even though people say it all the time, it’s true – he really is a professional. When Louie Barletta himself turns you pro, you did something right. Here are our five days of Thaynan Costa.
