The Zoo York Institute is proud to announce the addition of a true East Coast
original to its amateur team; twenty-one year old destroyer, Eli Reed.

Born and raised in Boston, MA, Eli currently lives in NYC’s East Village.
A versatile street skater with a deep bag of tricks, Eli’s unwavering
dedication and years of grinding it out have earned him the respect
of his peers and helped him make a name for himself in the global
skateboarding community. His most recent accomplishments include
placing fourth in Redbull’s Manny Mania Contest, as well as securing
highly-touted video parts in Zered Bassett’s “Vicious Cycle” and
“Jereme Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Eli is skating better than ever right now,
and to keep the momentum going he is already hard at work filming
his part for Zoo York’s upcoming full-length team video.

“Eli has been one of my best friends and favorite skaters for ten years now,”
says long-time Zoo pro rider Zered Bassett. “I’m hyped he’s officially part
of the crew, and I’m looking forward to traveling with him and watching him shred.”

As the newest member of the Zoo Crew, Eli joins veteran ZY Officials Zered Bassett,
Donny Barley, Aaron Suski, Forrest Kirby, Kevin Taylor, Brandon Westgate (Am),
Matt Miller (Am), Anthony Shetler (Am), Lamare Hemmings (Am), and Ron Deily (Am).

To celebrate Eli joining Zoo York, a special podcast is now available for download through iTunes.
