Rebecca De Unamuno on weekend ABC Radio (Australian National Broadcaster) interview Jackson Shapiera.
Jacko does a good job explaining the sport of downhill skateboarding to someone that knows nothing about the sport. He also talks about the upcoming World Roller Games (WRG), and his Facebook fund me campaign that is helping him complete at the Barcelona WRG.
James Hopkin snd Jeremy Bogan talk about the Mellow getting acquired, are 6 month warranties fair?, Skooter rental business model and will there be a mass esk8 rental business? Inboard and making a skooter! So much more, thanks for listening.
Talking to Jeremy from Jed Boards and Boa Wheels from the factory in China. We ask the hard questions: when the fck am I going to get my Jed board?!? Lots of great info, we talk about notable esk8 products this year and Black Friday specials!!! And a tip on pricing (hint buy your Jed before December)
First episode of Skate Every Day, I kick it off with Dan Pape from Japan. The big news this week in downhill skateboarding is the tragic death of Brazilian skater Allysson Pastrana at Rio Vista race in Brazil. It is a subject that breaks my heart but it would be disrespectful if we did not talk about it and how it might affect the sport in the future.
