Check Out Jason Phillips
Age: 20
Home: Los Angeles, California
Sponsors: Shorty’s (flow), Black Panthers, Black Magic, Church of Skatan

What can I say about this guy? I could say that he’s one of the best skaters I’ve seen and he has more style, ability, and power than most pros. I could also say that he’s a friendly guy who always has fun on a skateboard. Well, that’s fine and true and all, but I’ll take a bet that the other Check Outs in this magazine probably say the same thing. So let me just say that when I first met Jason, he was skating around in a pink helmet singing a song he called, “Smooth Typewriter.” Is that weird or what?-George Nagai
