A passion for one’s craft, a fiery enthusiasm for life and a positive connection to community… all great values that we hold dear at Jack Black. It’s with great pride that we announce the latest addition to the Jack Black Ambassador family, Chenai Gwandure.

Chenai is a unique, incredible person. With his gigantic smile, he sends out rays of positivity and good vibes wherever he goes. As a skateboarder, he flows with so much style and creativity. He’s always having the most fun on his board and whenever you roll with him, you’ll find his attitude to be contagious.

Originally from Zimbabwe, Chenai moved to Joburg as a child, and has spent much of his time in Cape Town. Chenai’s passionate about spreading the good energy of skateboarding through community upliftment projects at home and abroad. Through the non-profit organisation, Skate Zimbabwe, he collects shoes and skateboards to distribute throughout young underprivileged communities in Zim.

We’re incredibly stoked to welcome Chenai to the Jack Black Ambassador family and can’t wait to do some cool stuff together in the coming months. Cheers Chenai!
