The first time I saw Garrett skate, I felt like the guy in the old Maxell tape ads—blown away. Whether it’s tranny, rails, or raw street, Garrett will destroy all in his path. His drive is refreshing in an era of “I’m over it” after five tries. He’s just getting started, so strap in and get ready for a wild ride.—Charlie Thomas
