About Us

Dave Tuck

SIFL CO-Founder

Dave was a man of admiration by skateboarders and an inspiration to everyone in his presence. He was a great advocate of skateboarding and Snowboarding. Dave known as a scene building legend in Ann Arbor Michigan, Charleston South Carolina and Colorado. Finally settling down in Arvada he built a backyard pool that was skated by many locals and also had a few bad ass contests. Being able to witness his smile while skating and snowboarding truly showed his passion for giving back to the skate and snowboard community. Unfortunately in late 2011 Dave was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. People who knew Dave know that he was a fighter and fought cancer for almost two years before his passing. The world wouldn’t be what it is today without Dave and we are proud to say we were blessed with his presence.
