Kevin Porter is a Chicago native who decided he needed a break from the winters and a change of scenery to stoke the fire. He moved out to Long Beach, CA with a couple of fellow riders to explore what the west coast had to offer. What he found was a better sense of well being and a more laid back atmosphere that he now enjoys. Kevin spends much of his time riding the local parks and street spots when he is not traveling the country doing demos, filming or competing. One thing that Kevin can't go a day without, coffee. The self proclaimed coffee connoisseur, and former coffee shop owner, has been searching the Long Beach area for the best coffee – adding a little adventure to his travels. Kevin has been working hard on tearing up the dirt competitions at the Dew Tour, and will continue fly his body and bike over big gaps with his smooth and powerful style.
