Update: Video back online. /!\ DO NOT even think about trying this! Erick Garcia (ESG) is a boss that has been doing this for years.
Now the time has finally come to showcase what he has been up to this past year. Although his passion has always been for street and park skating, he has always loved the feel of speed beyond normal conditions.
Erick would also like to pay homage to Video Groove Magazine (VG 8) with the song selection, as he has been in the game for 20 years now and to be frank, he just keeps it OG… Enjoy, JSF!
Filmed and edited by Sean Keane, additional Filming: Ivan Narez.

It’s pretty simple Matt… JSF is a Northern California skate crew that has been around since 1999.

On top of that, we were put in the “Masters Division” because Dave Paine already knew that Nor Cal holds it down super hard so there was no reason for our crew to be put under the “New School Division”. So the friends and I thought of a crew name that would be in the video and we came up with JSF, otherwise known as Juiced Sucka Foos. […]
