How we help

Here at Dream Addiction we do our best to support this young athlete's dream by sending high-performance gear and equipment to match his rivals.

How you can help

Competing across the country gets costly with food, lodging, and travel. So Samuel and his dad are always taking donations to keep the dream going!

Empowering local brands and artists

We are committed to supply Samuel with high quality and stylish gear. One way to do that is by partnering with local artists and skate shops for such.
