seen him skate a few times in the u.k. - fast, smooth, stylish and off his f***kin' head - all the way live. Any chance of a series of TWS interviews - Carroll, Mariano, Puleo etc etc.

the humblest and most inspiring person i've ever
met in skateboarding. besides OGGI.
i remember the day the news hit deluxe.
it was so hard to believe.
then to see him show up there months after
walking. with a cane,but still, they said he wouldn't walk again.
always full throttle, always.
mad respect john. thanks.

Positive as fuck! Even after everything that's happened to him. John's fucking great. I remember skating with him back in the Dogtown days and he was pretty crazy even back then. Seeing him nowadays, you can't help but get stoked. I ran into him not too long ago at a taqueria and we talked about how he was going to open up a bike shop in Sac. I think it's gonna be geared more towards fixed gear bikes cause he's pretty into them. I think he wants to get into building custom frames. I know they'll be sick as fuck if he does start doing that.
