Paul John new Pro wheels available now! This wheel is 57/88 perfect for street and a good size to ride flat. Paul John, a resident of Chicago, has been with Gawds since day one! His wild style in the streets has him standing out for sure. If you catch PJ at a contest, you can see him in his ultimate form. Always full throttle. Amazing to see, with his lace or get laced attitude.

Chicago, Illinois — July 17th, 2021. Year twenty! WOW! The riot is known for it’s big prize pot and this year was no surprise as first place took home 3K! Four skate locations with some unique approaches like setting up a wooden box to a square handrail or just gaping onto a kinked down ledge. The skating was entertaining and the crowd, as usual, was full of life.
We got kicked out of the final spot but as the campus police were there, the show ended with a banger that was later awarded with a best trick prize. Another great year at the riot and another win for the Chicago scene. Cheers! Visit Buttertv.com.
