Becoming a pro skateboarder doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s a long road, with plenty of struggle. But, if you’re hungry enough, you could one day be skating alongside the dudes that you’ve looked up to when you were just starting out. In part one of our series on Jake Donnelly’s journey to the pro ranks, we visit his childhood home and learn about his influences as a young skater. We will post a new episode every day this week to celebrate Jake’s pro status on Real Skateboards.
