Who is Evan Mock?
A skateboarder, photographer and model, Mock was born on April 8, 1997. He grew up on the North Shore of Oahu and had been surfing all his life. However, at the age of 12, he discovered his passion for skateboarding. "I had the skate park across the street from my house I just got hooked on skating, and then I didn't even think about the water for a few years. I was homeschooled, so I would go surf before school, and then all day after school too," he told Elle.
Mock was the photographer for Travis Scott's Astro World tour. The rapper noticed Mock's talent via Instagram and had him join the tour, capturing all behind the scenes moments. Mock has modeled for Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Paco Rabanne, Jimmy Choo x Timberland and Superdry.

Mock is known for his style
Apart from modeling, it turns out Mock has quite an eye for design as well, seeing that he launched a collection with RVCA, the Californian lifestyle brand, in June. "It's really special because it's so intertwined with my family heritage and Hawaii's history," said Mock, while talking to Vogue. "It's all things I want to wear. I designed the whole thing when we were in the heat of Covid," he explained. "We didn't know how long this was going to last, so it got me thinking about making a timeless collection that would live forever," he added.
He also spoke about his inspiration. "I wanted it to be vintage Hawaii [inspired]— the culture of Hawaii that I grew up with," he added. "I got them to make the shirts look washed and cracked. The vintage shirts look old from the '70s — like you bought it off eBay or something." he said.
What is his net worth?
Buzz Learn estimates Mock's net worth to be somewhere between $1M and $5M. Given his prior work experience and current opportunities, Mock's star is definitely on the rise.
'Gossip Girl' reboot will premiere on July 8 on HBO Max.
