Evan Smith, an Element Skateboards pro-rider, badass musician, and an all-around great dude, popped into the SWELL studio to get us pumped about the Element X Fender Collaboration.

They are offering everything from hoodies, raglans, tanks and tees and we were lucky enough to nab a few to give away!
