Oasis Skateboard Factory Grad Night 2017

Ted and Norah open their home yet again to host the 2017 Oasis Skateboard Factory Grad night. As they were in their usual Maui summer location, Chris Burns and the Roarockit staff held it down and the night was a huge success! People flooded their Millwood house from far and wide to watch 13 kids graduate and to set a new Oasis Skateboard Factory record!  

Roarockit's Social Media expert and photographer Jonathan Nuss was on the scene making sure to capture all the emotion.

 Chris Burns put his heart and soul into making these kids happy and the event run smoothly.

 Big smiles from all the students as they got their final patch, gift bag and a little ribbing from the class.

 Not a dry eye in the room at as Parr hugged his grandmother. Parr traveled all the way from Nunavut this year to become the first person in his family to graduate high school!  Emotions were running high to say the least.
