Jeremy Wray Week continues with a dedication to brother Jonas.
My brother Jonas exemplifies what it means to skate for all the right reasons. Nothing he does is ever forced or influenced by anything other than his own personal pursuit of a good time.
While we were growing up and skating together in the early years, he clearly had the more natural talent between the two of us. Things seemed to come so easy for him. He learned new tricks quickly and once he had it, he kept it.
We both skated for a solid 10 years before getting out first sponsors and Jonas actually got sponsored first. We skated in contests together and we usually both did pretty good, trading off first and second place finishes. I know for a fact that without having Jonas as my brother to skate with, hang out with and learn from, I would not have made it as far as I did or have become the same person that I am today. Even though he's a year younger than me, he grew up faster and taught me a lot about life and how to live it to the fullest.
The photos you are about to see are just a small glimpse back to an important time in skateboarding and a walk down memory lane with one of my favorite people on the planet. Enjoy.
