Pro Skateboarder Making His Mark Building Hot Tubs
Bullfrog Spas and Skateboarding, Hmm, What’s the Connection?
Skateboarding and spas almost seem like opposite universes but one Utah kid mixes the two quite well. Skateboarding phenom, Kevin Fedderson, is working hard in the factory here at Bullfrog to support his passion and what will probably be his future career, professional skateboarding. Kevin works on Bullfrog’s portable spa assembly line carefully crafting the installation points for foot, calf, and hand jets in the spa shell. At work Kevin is focused on ensuring maximum quality as he helps build the best hot tubs in the industry and he is just as focused after work when he heads out to his local skate parks and streets to practice the tricks and moves that have him quickly moving up the ranks of pro skateboarding.
In the Summer of 2009 Kevin was invited to skate in the skateboard park event on the Dew Tour, a big move for this 19-year old kid from Utah. The Dew Tour, known as the premier action sports tour in North America, holds several events across the United States. Even though he is young, he hasn’t buckled under the pressure of performing at amateur and now professional events. He has made the finals at every event he has skated and finished the 2009 season in 14th in points. Kevin is excited for his prospects in the remaining 2010 Dew tour events and has also been invited to skate at ESPN’s 2010 X-Games, the premier event of its kind. Kevin already has several major sponsorships and is in line for a few very large sponsorships from bigger corporations.
Kevin talks about his passion in a recent feature interview by the local Fox affiliate and also shows some of his signature moves in the video below.
Bullfrog is proud to have focused and hard working individuals like Kevin helping to build the best hot tub in the world and would like to wish all the best for Kevin in his skateboarding pursuits.
