Reinaldo Reyes



Biography

A 20-year-old skater from Havana, Cuba, Reinaldo Reyes has been skating since he was 9 and is undoubtedly one of the most talented skateboarders on the island. He recently finished high school and has been working as a culinary apprentice. He also enjoys surfing, loves Andrew Reynolds and Baker Skateboards, and has one of the sickest trick selections out there. On the streets of Cuba, people recognize Reinaldo and call him "Karell," the Cuban way of saying Kareem, because he--both physically and on his skateboard--resembles the legendary Kareem Campbell.
