Edit: TJ Ellis Pre-Surgery Session


I didn't get to film with 24-year-old TJ Ellis as much as we both would have liked, due to unpredictable So Cal weather and some other factors. But we did manage to get some good footage. In this edit, TJ flows around Mike Lakins and Luke Parslow's trails, the Compound and Clairemont skatepark. And just after filming wrapped up, TJ underwent knee surgery. He will be rehabbing for the next few months so this might be the last footage you see of him for a while.
