Thrash 'N Raid (TNR) as founded in July 2020 by Marine Corps Raider, Benjie Manibog. After serving on active duty for nearly 16 years, Benjie's career was suddently cut short when his wife was diagnosed with stage five kidney failure. Although he left the special operations community behind, he found a new sense of purpose in serving others through skateboarding. Benjie's personal why is:
"To illuminate the hearts of others, so they may rise above barriers."
This same why is what we've adopted as our brand's mission and have built a team of veteran, active duty, and civilian skaters that all believe in making a meaningful impact in people's lives. Today, Thrash 'N Raid is currently going through some changes, to include changing our name. Currently, we are going by TNR; however, expect a new name to be adopted by October 31st 2022.
Despite this change, we are still dedicated to helping others rise above barriers through our actions, not words. In just over two years, TNR has provided hundreds of skateboards to kids in underprivileged communities, dedicated hundreds of hours to serving veterans and service members through Six Feet Above and sponsored dozens of skateboarding, veteran, and charitable events to include: The Berrics Ladies Night, Princemas, Redlands Thrash, Mini Ripperz Skate Contest, The Hero Games, Shred the Trend, and more.
We are so grateful for everyone's love and support. Rise Above.
