Jesse Martinez.

The Mess flies out of the fountains at Back To The City contest in SF.

Jesse is the ultimate local in Venice Beach and was instrumental in getting the Venice Skate Park built. He has ridden for Powell Peralta and World Industries. Powell recently gave him a tribute model with graphics by Vance Court Johnson. He ripped up a ramp in World Industries' Rubbish Heap video.

This may be hard to appreciate, but it was pretty tough to get a method off a jump rampt where the board is rotated more than 90 degrees. Seeing this in person was impressive. Only a few guys could do it and they were mostly Venice Beach rats- who pushed each other hard. Let's see some Aaron Murray ads now!
