Brofile #10 — Dion & Jacob Schweikl

The Schweikl Bros

Brofile or brofiles? As things have quietened off for the winter here, our photog Andy took a couple of 9 year old twin rippers to set the stage for Brofile #10. Dion and Jacob Schweikl are regulars at our events, and have enough passion and enthusiasm for skateboarding to inspire anyone. Jellie Park Skatepark was the destination of choice and these guys continue to get better. Nothing better than some sibling rivalry to step things up!

Here’s a few photos from the session and some words they each had to say…
