Chocolate turns Trunk Boyz pro

Chocolate seems to prefer to do things in groups. It goes on tours with sister company Girl Skateboards (pun intended) and they put out videos together. After the release of their joint video “"Pretty Sweet"” at the end of 2012, we knew it was only a matter of time before some of those up-and-coming amateurs turned pro. So rather than do it one at a time, Chocolate gave the whole “Trunk Boyz” crew boards all at once. With Stevie Perez, Elijah Berle and Raven Tershey (pictured here) joining the big leagues, it leaves Chocolate Skateboards with an all-professional team going into 2014.
