Talkin’ Schmit Ep.70: Jason Jessee

Growing up with the Fletchers, learning backside airs from Steadham, turning pro the same day Baca was born, playing music with Blender, filming a movie with Jackie Chan, surfing the North Shore with Jay Adams, pantsing fools, and much more. Episode Seven-Oh fuck yeah—Not intended for weak sucks…

Air to fakie at the Vertkeley skate camp…

Potrero park 8am to fakie on the one-eight…

Pocket tee modeling gig pays chicken feed…

Get yours today…

Angles for days in that tight SF jersey…

You don’t always see him on a front invert—this Spitfire ad is a classic…

Checkin’ the deck with a proper rock…

Up the hill, and over the channel to fakie for the Doug pound…

No common dandy is taking it to the corner at Potrero…

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 60: Joe Fong

Born and raised in the SFC, Joe Fong talks Bombora, the Belmont Drop, Joe Lopes Ramp, hangin’ with Fausto and Eric and much more on today’s special 60th episode of Talkin Schmit. He also was instrumental in testing and developing the first Indy truck. Lots of history on this one—hope you enjoy it.

You say Belmont Drop, we say the Spillway. San Mateo hills early days, this is the first place I ever took my skateboard.
