Last Night, 917 made the announcement that Max Palmer and Aidan Mackeye are its newest pros. Alex Olson admittedly didn’t have the clearest idea of what he was doing when he started 917 roughly four years ago as the core skate sister brand to his Bianca Chandôn fashion label. Instead of recruiting from established names in the industry, he put on a group of locals from the LES skatepark that showed potential. This band of outsiders blossomed into a formidable team. The culmination of which was the release of 917’s inaugural video offering last September to a very warm reception from skateboarding. A month later, Cyrus Bennett was announced as 917’s second pro after Alex. In 2018, the saga continues with the introduction of Max and Aidan’s first signature boards.
