John Drake #3.
"My first deck was a Fred Smith Loud One. That board ripped. It was a Fred Smith 3, Loud One. Then they had the punk size which was pretty decent."
Fat switch pop shove-it.
John is from West Virginia, but lived all around the midwest - Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio. He rode for G & S and Assault before eventually being asked to ride for the Alien Workshop. John was also sponsored by Droors, Venture, Pacific Drive, and Etnies. He had a 23 second part in Footage of him skating curbs. The trick for the ad was his ender in his section in The Dreams of Children. His part in Timecode was cool.
