Shot by Rachard Johnson: “I’ve kown Demetrios George since he was 12 years old. He was the smallest of our group but had the biggest mouth. No matter where he went he knew if anything went down the big brothers had his back. We’ve grown so much since kids from skating pro all over the world to getting pro skates to starting families. It’s hard to keep a long lasting friendship these days. Yeah we’ve had our ups and downs but i can proudly say we are on the same page.
With mindset comes growth. Growth that can only happen through life experiences. We revisited an old spot he tried as a kid after seeing the video Fruitbooter by Joe Navran ; Ranier Piramide section specifically (PLAY) (spot at 1:13). He ate it bad as a kid and last year we revisited it and conquered it. You will see the process in the video. Enjoy!”.
Is rollerblading dead? It has seemed to reemerge during the pandemic. We all have that passion for what we used to do and wish we never stopped.. Seems like we pick up where we left off. Today i met up with my boy Demetrios George and Tom Mueller to skate some street. Seemed like the good old days! Enjoy. - Rachard Johnson.
Athlete: Demetrios George. Shot by Rachard Johnson. “Lots of ups and downs for Demetrios George. Finally in a state of focus not many achieve easily. Many say he is too old for hammers ; he says you’re not in your right mindset to even think about attempting these stunts… It’s nothing new to him, we’ve been doing things like this since kids, so in reality we already know wht it takes to hammer out these kind of tricks. Demetrios is a one of a kind athlete and one of my very best friends and as we begun to clip up for his VOD Life got in the way, again. This is the mindset of Demetrios George and every one of our clips have a very deep meaning… This is just the beginning so stay tuned”.
Every first sunday of the month we organize a huge skate session. This time i decided to bring out my brother Vinny Minton. Skating has been so fun lately it’s great to be back doing what i love. If you’re around California come skate with us. We will be taking this on the road so stay tuned for those tour dates! Enjoy. - Rachard Johnson.
