Every sport has its legends and every legend has a story and skateboarding is no exception. Every skateboarder has a unique story to tell regarding their introduction to the sport, their passion for developing their art, and the terrain they call their own. But Wee Man isn't like that. In fact, he isn't like any skater before him. Breaking into entirely new territory in a style entirely his own, Wee Man defies both physics and expectations. Have you ever watched him? If you haven't, go watch him. You'll understand what we meam. We're inspired by WeeMan - or as his parents call him, Jason Acuna.
Born in Pisa, Italy in 1973, Acuna was raised in California and got his start in the skating industry as a subscription manager for a skateboard magazine. He eventually went on to become a television personality and actor for one of television's biggest series in 2001 where he adopted the moniker "Wee Man". He now owns over 30 restaurants across the United States and his own skateboarding company. No matter where his life takes him, however, you can be sure to find him still shredding on a regular basis at the local California skate park.
At MERGE4, we know music is more than fleeting background noise you switch on to add a little ambiance to a dinner party. We understand that music is soul, movement, emotion, and for many, it's a way of life. The right music can bring you higher than your doubts, swoop low to comfort you on disconcerting days, and add a butt-kicking theme song to the story of your life. Beyond all that, music is inspiring, and it inspires us every day to create show-stopping, game-changing designs.
