Roseburg, Ore. resident and Lifeblood skateboards team member Mason Merlino gets in a few lines at a local park while discussing his current affinity for pool skating. According to his Lifeblood bio, Merlino is "directly influenced by heavyweight pros and peers like Emmanuel Guzman, Lance Lesher, Mark "Red" Scott and Peter Hewitt. He skates it all too -- banks, gaps, ledges, parks, pools, pipes -- you name it; he'll happily adapt to the terrain in front of him with a huge smile on his face."
Currently on a European tour, Mason is 20-years-old and skates for CCS, Vans (flow), Venture Trucks, and Brixton (flow), in addition to Lifeblood. Video by Josh "Peacock" Henderson.
