Ethan’s references to pop culture and the early 2000’s skateboarding pros has always been hilarious and provided the foundation to our life long friendship. We met by complete chance whilst learning to skateboard in my high school carpark.
Sadly Ethan moved away from Guernsey and my heart sank. We would make every effort to keep in touch whilst he travelled the world – China, Spain and many parts of England. If you look back through the Avenue archive, you’ll find great testament to his legacy.
Ethan has become an amazing skateboarder and someone who not just myself, but all of his friends and family love to spend time with and have a laugh.
He has a very humble attitude, dedication and perseverance to succeed in life is contagious. I’m honoured and proud to have Ethan as part of the Avenue rooster and look forward to any opportunity we get to spend with each other.
Oh, did I mention Ethan’s eclectic taste of music and awesome DJ skills? Take a listen to his edition of the Avenue Mixtape Series and download it here whilst you still can. One love.
Avenue Mixtape Vol.2 – Luke Graves
Born and raised in the seaside town Lowestoft, Luke crossed paths with some of the lads and I whilst living and skating in London.
Whether he’s fishing, jamming with his guitar, mixing, cooking or skating, Luke’s guaranteed to put a big smile on your face and make you laugh.
I always remember our legendary cross-continental skate trip to Hamburg in the summer of 2017. Camping on the side of motorways, showering in private gyms and hammering it down the Autobahn in a big old ass, straight-six Mercedes.
Luke has since re-located back to living in New Zealand with his amazing wife, Katie. He’s put a side his busy daily routine and made a cracking mix for our series.

Avenue Mixtape Vol.1 – gGnarr (George Juchau)
Take a listen to the sound of the suburbs.
Hailing from the quiet borough of Hillingdon on the outskirts of London, George proved that he had a mature style on and off the board since we first met.
Growing up seeing George progress and get as far as he has is incredible. He’s never failed to impress us not that it’s needed. Remaining humble and true to his unique personality.
The guy’s a natural and nice as pie. He’s managed to put his hectic Uni party life a side for one night and proudly stepped up, producing the first edition of our Avenue Mixtape series.
Anyway, if you enjoy it enough, download it here whilst you can!
