Obscura wakeskates, the Liquid Force wakeskate brand run by Danny Hampson and Aaron Reed, recently added Travis Doran to its team. The Bradenton, Florida, native has already been on a filming trip with the Obscura team, and he’s quickly been filling his bin with clips for the brand’s upcoming video.
“Travis has been killing it for years, and his hammer section in Funboots only proved that further,” Reed says. “We are all really excited to have him on the team and be filming with him for the video. He is one of the coolest guys around, and his personality really melds with everyone on the team.”
Doran joins a growing Obscura team that also includes Reed, Hampson, Grant Roberts, Kyle Hyams, James Balzer and Stefan Schriewer. At only 19, Doran has many more years of ripping in front of him, and with the support and nurturing of the elder Obscura team riders, there is no limit to how this flower is going to blossom and grow.
“We believe Travis has a spirit that can truly fill our sails and help steer the Obscura ship to the promised land on the edge of the horizon,” Hampson says.
