Speak softly and carry a big stick is a phrase that comes to mind when I here the name Justin Roy. At first sight he’s your typical dirty hessian¿long hair, ripped jeans, cut-up T-shirts, Camel Lights … the whole nine. Then you see him on his skateboard, and a few other words come about¿determination, dedication, and fun. With that combination and only four years under his belt, San Diego’s newest addition has a future paved in gold.

Long live the dirts.¿Kris Markovich
