Todd McInerney talks to James Johnson of Revolution Skate Shop about starting Revolution, fatherhood, staying core, Kato’s influence, Joey Chase, Keaton Newsom, Casey McFarland, Matt Ledoux, James’ 90 second edit, Jon Jenkins, powerblading, and so much more!
How could I put into words who James Johnson is to me? James is someone that I feel blessed to share experiences on this planet with. A human being that inspires me to better myself. A dude, that I would fly out to Arizona to hang out with, even if I can’t skate cause I have a busted shin. Yes, he owns a skate shop.
Yes, he has been the back bone of one of the healthiest skate scenes in America. Yes, he has had hundreds of people staying in his home so they could come skate in AZ, but for me James is way more than the sum of what he did or did not. For me, James Johnson is a friend, a brother (even if I am not close to being Native). As for his skating, I will let the 90 seconds speak for itself.
