Jeron Wilson #2.

"My first memory? God, going skating my first time in '87, I think, and going to a demo and running into Eddie Reategui - wait, not Eddie Reategui, Tony Alva. I was going off a launch ramp and I ran into Tony Alva and he called me a kook or something. It was funny."

You can't go wrong with Jeron. He always delivers some smooth technical skating. It was cool to see he had a lot of tricks in Pretty Sweet.

I finally got enjoi's Oververt DVD this last week. I had watched most of it online when the video debuted on Thrasher's website. Oververt is a good flick. It is so much better having it in a physical format. Skateboarding on the TV is vastly superior to watching skateboarding on the internet.

For the quote: Thrasher - February 2001 Volume 21 Number 2

Transworld - February 2000 Volume 18 Number 2

His Wilson 5 DVS x Girl shoes were some of the most comfy (outside of giant old tech shoes) and "clean" things I have ever worn skating.
