Here at Thrill Appeal our mission is to make action sports and outdoor adventure super accessible.

Thrill Appeal was born out of our passion and enthusiasm for outdoor sports and fun. We aim to be the place to visit when learning about outdoor action sports and adventure.

We offer up in depth how to guides, gear reviews, and comparisons on some of the most interesting sports activities in the world. Weather you want to learn how to skateboard, find the best scooter, or the learn the difference between a longboard and regular skateboard we’ve got you covered. Outdoor adventure sports push you to learn more not only about the activity itself but about yourself and your unlimited abilities. They expand your horizons and help you live for the moment.

We believe its important to cherish the moment and truly live the now as best as we can.

There is an infinite amount of places to see and things to explore and learn. We are hungry to learn and grow and hope that those that visit Thrill Appeal can enjoy the journey and hopefully learn something along the way.

Mike Bran

mike branI grew up doing all kinds of sports, from soccer to swimming to basketball. I had a lot of energy so my mother would put me in everything. As I got older I quickly gravitated toward action sports. It started with skateboarding and biking and evolved from there. I grew up loving those old school 80s skateboard videos and BMX. I still feel like those are some of the coolest videos and athletes I’ve ever seen.

My other interest include music, art, and fashion.

Favorite music genres would include hip hop, punk, reggae, classic rock and soul (even some 80s). I love live concerts. Nothing beats the energy of a live concert.

As for fashion I really enjoy the classic things that never go out of style. A nice white t shirt, selvedge blue jeans, and a nice pair of boots or sneakers.
