Of all the people I still keep in touch with regularly, Kevin is one of the people I’ve known the longest. A lot of people don’t know that before Kevin Robinson was winning X Games medals he was busting his ass working long hours at his brother’s upholstery shop in Rhode Island, and going to the skatepark at night and on weekends… whenever he could find the time. You don’t see Kevin walking out of the gym, or getting up from a vert crash, and think “Man, that dude can probably sew really well.”

Years down the road, after years of non-stop bike riding obligations, Kevin bought a sewing machine and started making custom motorcycle seats for his friends.
