The Delaney Park "Dude" Ben Farleigh is in his happy place on his skateboard. Dave first saw the 31-year-old a few weeks ago, cruising the streets around Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage. With his green headphones and pink fanny pack, he was hard to miss. But it was his infectious smile and pure joy in what he was doing that caught Dave's eye. Ben is a standup comedian and works in town at his father's business. But, when he's not doing those things, he's on his board, dancing and 'jammin' to some random techno and doling out a little "dude" vibes on his trusty longboard.
