Jonathan is a natural-born ripper. I’ve been skating with this kid for quite a while, and he can rip anything. Jonathan’s got skills, but he’s still trying to pay the bills. I think all his scrillos go to alcohol. Everybody needs to watch out for this dude. He’ll cut you if he’s f-ked up enough, and especially if you cross into the HB park-stay clear. But besides booze and skating, he’s a cool-ass dude who loves skating and psychedelic music. He’s a true rippin’ hippie.-Dylan Rieder
