Sarkis Johnson eats, sleeps, and breathes skateboarding. In fact, this 13 year old Kidpreneur wakes up each and every morning in his skateboard shop which he runs out of his bedroom. How cool is that?
Born to Be a Skateboarder?
So how did all this begin for Sarkis? Well, believe it or not, there were signs of budding skateboard fanatic when Sarkis was barely old enough to walk.
Just 2 months after mastering his first steps as a 1 year old, he was placed on his Dad’s skateboard and given a little nudge. To his parents’ surprise, he glided down the driveway fearlessly without taking a spill, and although Sarkis has had his fair share of tumbles and injuries during his many years of his skateboarding obsession, he has definitely landed on his feet and grown into a passionate young man with the heart of an entrepreneur.
Sarkis in now a teenager running his own skateboard company, Liquid Chicken Skateboards. Liquid Chicken sells decks, apparel, custom grip as well as coaching services to help beginners learn the craft.
With the encouragement and full support of his parents, Sarkis has turned his lifelong dream into a reality, and hopes to build his business into one of the biggest skateboard companies on the planet.
