julio_main

Hey Jon, how you’re doing these days?
Good just getting back from a trip to Arizona with Brandon and Ivan trying to get some last clips before the end of the year for Valo V.

How does your normal day look like?
Hmm usually try to find an am sesh at Centennial Skatepark or lately Paramount Skatepark (Santa Ana). Then head to the shop for a days work.

Hows Santa Ana in the wintertime?
This year it’s colder than normal. But it’s nice. Can’t beat SoCal weather.

You want to give us a little wrap up of how your 2012 looked like?!
