Five pro model decks and a signature colorway will also be coming with Guru into pro-dom, so look for those to drop very, very soon.
Check some leftover footage from Guru’s part in Habitat’s upcoming video, Origin.

Agency Thursdays: Nate Broussard Day in the Life Part 1
This week’s installment features Hifi’s own Nate Broussard in the first of a two-part Day in the Life series. Day one follows Nate out and about on his usual chores, some smooth warm up lines at the Lincoln church mini ramp, and a quick session down at the new Venice park with sir Pastras and sir Peterson just before the rain drops.
