Talking of good looks, who better to represent the Limited éS Skate Rat ACCEL than the Chinese Skate Legend, Kien “Donger” Lieu. Donger’s family is from a small village in Canton, China. At 4 years of age, his family settled in San Diego, California where he conquered skate spots that are still untouched to this day. He speaks fluent Cantonese and his Skate Rat philosophy speaks for itself. Known as having one of the highest ollies, aspirational style, and kindest, most generous personality – Donger is one of our favorite Skate Rats who has lived skateboarding 110% for over 30 years.
The artist of the éS Skate Rat emblem is Mark Kowalchuck who resides in Calgary, Canada and has been a Skate Rat for over 30 years. One of his favorite local spots just happens to be “Little China” in Calgary. Mark is a prolific designer and has designed graphics for many of the best skateboard companies in the world.
