Cairo Foster pro to flow | enjoi skateboarding

It’s with a tip of the hat that Cairo Foster retired from professional skateboarding. He could have milked it, he could have coasted but he wanted to walk away on his terms. One more reason Cairo is a legend. Enjoi proudly sponsored Cairo for over a decade and he will be forever part of the enjoi family. Cairo, you are truly one of the greats!!! Thank you!
