Yaje Popson.

Orange Painting Pants.

Yaje is from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He has lived in New York City since he was a little kid. Chocolate was flowing him boards around about 2010. A knee injury at the time caused him to take a break from skateboarding and move back to Brazil to heal up. He used the time to expand his interests outside of skateboarding to include painting, playing the guitar, farming, and yoga. After about three years off, Yaje was ready to roll again. He has since turned pro for the Alien Workshop and gotten sponsored by Adidas. He scored the last part in Transworld's recent Riddles In Mathematics video.

Zach Malfa-Kowalski took the skate photo. Joey Guevara took the chilling photo.
