Justin Figueroa.

Harsh Toke.

I guess I'm finally posting stuff skaters under 30 will appreciate.

Figgy was an am for Birdhouse. As is often the case with Birdhouse ams, as they grow up a little and discover things like rock music and tattoos, they end up switching to Baker. Or at least they used to when Baker and Birdhouse were distributed by the same company. Anyway, I'm rambling. Justin doesn't mess around and totally destroys all handrails, regular or switch. His part in Bake & Destroy probably should have won him Thrasher's SOTY for 2012. The split part he had with Don Nguyen in the Shake Junt video was maybe the highlight of that flick. He rides for Emerica and the mysterious Asphalt Yacht Club.

Harsh Toke is the band Figgy plays guitar in with Austin Ayub, Richie Belton, and Gabe Messer. They have an album out on Tee Pee Records.

John Bradford took the picture.
