Pledge Mikey - formerly known as Cam Kress

Oh boy we are not even sure where to start with Mikey. Cam Kress has many names here at the shop: Mikey, Pledge Mikey, Kress, Cam, Pledge, and many more. Mikey has some awesome energy both at work and in everyday life. I mean how many people bring in two Gatorades and 2 water bottles after a quality night of slumber? Mikey is the newest staff member and boy does he get heat from the crew. He is a wing instructor, warehouse guy, and livechat maniac. He is learning how to do it all. Sadly he is not super into kiting yet and winging is his predominant sport. We are working on making him a well-versed waterman.

Riding Stats:

Weight - Doesn't even register on the big shipping scale

Riding Style - I wish I had some.

Dream Quiver - I do not have any dreams.
