Justin Bokma.


Justin was from Toronto, Canada. Over the years he was sponsored by G & S, Change, Premier, and Platinum. He had the cover of Transworld with a backside lipslide at Hubba Hideout in March of 1996. Justin was killed by a gunshot in July while attempting to diffuse a fight that had broken out at the club he was a doorman for. Rest in peace.

The photo is by Pete Thompson.

Justin was working with Blue Tile Lounge in Toronto on re-releasing his first pro deck (Change) before he was shot. They went ahead with it with some of the proceeds going to a children's charity. spitfire stepped up and printed shirts and wheels too (also w/donations to the charity) as he was sponsored by them in the 90's. (Jim T gets it). Toronto legend. Thanks for the post.

You're welcome. The Skate Park of Tampa made a bunch of different stuff in memory of Justin as well.
