Celtek, the sick snowboard gloves and accessories brand owned by Bjorn Leines and his brother Erik, hit us up recently to bring us some sad news. They’re launching an appeal for one of their artist friends, who was in a rather nasty accident recently. This being the US, they charge a shitload for the kind of healthcare the NHS gives us for free, so have a heart, and have a read to see how you can help.
“Celtek designer and well-known Salt Lake City artist Dave Doman suffered a severe head injury while skateboarding in San Clemente, California just over a week ago.
He and Celtek CEO Erik Leines had just wrapped up some sick new designs when they decided to head down to the beach for a surf. Always up for some fun, Dave thought he’d shoot the hill on his longboard skateboard and swung wide to hang a right onto the next street. As he was exiting the turn Dave hit a puddle of water, causing his wheels to slide out and sending him headfirst into the asphalt.
Doman was rushed to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, where he is currently in a medically induced coma, recovering from his injuries.
Dave has a long road ahead of him and needs everyone’s thoughts and prayers for a fast, complete recovery.
Hanging out in the ICU isn’t cheap, so Celtek has released a poster and a t-shirt featuring an original piece of Doman’s art to help raise some funds for our buddy. All proceeds will benefit Dave and his recovery efforts. Get yours at www.celteksnow.com”
