Hugh "Bod" Boyle #3.

Bod is from London, England. His nickname is from an English cartoon. He grew up skating around the city and at the Crystal Palace ramp with Steve Douglas. At the end of the 1980s, he started doing really well in a lot of vert contests. Bod also moved to San Jose around that time, too. He was on G & S before Santa Cruz. According to an interview from twenty three years ago, his favorite bands included Black Sabbath, the Sex Pistols, the Damned, and Bad Religion. Some of his favorite skaters were Mike Smith, Todd Prince, Sergie Ventura, and the locals at Jeff Kendall's warehouse ramp.
