If you spend any time in the Concrete Jungle at Windells, you’re bound to see a tall, lanky guy in a Jivaro hat cruising high-speed around the park, following lines you hadn’t even noticed, doing tricks you hadn’t even thought of. That guy, who regularly tears apart the concrete at camp, is Creature Skateboards’ Willis Kimble, a Portland-local whose fluid and technical skating has been causing double-takes at camp over the last few years.

Willis was just featured on ESPN.com’s Amateur Hour, where he explained why he prefers to live and skate in Portland instead down in SoCal, and gives one of his favorite skateparks in Oregon (thanks Jamie and crew!) some love. Check it out here.
