Now that summer is in full swing, we are excited to write about our partnership with the Ohio Dreams action sports camp in Butler, Ohio.

Enjoy our conversation below. Tell us about yourself- where are you from? I was born in San Francisco and have been living in the Bay area my entire life.

Neon Bandits has been excited to partner with the Ohio Dreams action sports camp located in Butler, Ohio this summer. Campers ranging from seven to seventeen years old travel from around the country to attend the action sports camp where kids can work on skateboarding, BMX riding, skiing, snowboarding, and scootering. We passed along some socks to the camp for the instructors to sport while working the camp. Additionally, socks have been given away as prizes to lucky campers during contests. The most epic part of Ohio Dreams is the world famous Slip N’ Fly. This gigantic waterslide catapults riders high up in the...
