Jimmy Lannon’s the man, he’s the boy, and he’s the champ. As of six months ago, Jimmy was working an actual job and skating in his free time. Since then, Jimmy’s got married, is sponsored by Element, and came out with his bangin’ first part in Westside Skate Shop’s, third video The Good Life. He mannied down city blocks, hauled mad ass through the streets and nollie flipped his way to no job, traveling to Puerto Rico, Belgium, and all over this round globe of skate spots. He’s probably the most humble person you’ll ever meet-definitely the easiest person to deal with in this skateboard industry of ours. He’s simply the best, legit in every way, from his style to his swagger. When you see Jimmy in the streets, give him his props-believe me, he’ll be the first to show you yours.-John Montesi
