Rancho Bernardo, California’s own J.T. Aultz has been on a bloody rampage since appearing in our 2002 Am Issue. Clipper, Rincon, you name it—J.T.’s killed it. Just check out Real’s Recipe For Disaster or Seeing Double and you’ll know what I’m talking about. And there’s no stopping him, either, judging from the looks of this photo barrage.
It’s also no easy feat to ride for a hardcore NorCal board company such as Real when you’re located smack dab in the middle of enemy territory—So Cal. Sometimes the gnarlness factor does indeed outweigh politics and geographical locations. All of J.T.’s hard work and dedication to skateboarding has earned him a coveted top spot in the “New Breed Of Rippers” category and will undoubtedly be shredding things to bits for a very long time to come.—A.S.
