Rio–I love this dude! Every time I go to Oz I get pumped to skate, because as soon as I get off the plane my man greets me with a handful of spots and a handful of green.–Tosh Townend

Josh is one of the new breed–he has the balls to jump on plenty of rails and gnarly ones at that. He's one of the most humble, yet motivated skaters. Sometimes it's funny, Josh will just cruise around in the background until something inside fires up, then (as anyone who has ever skated with him would know) he'll just stand up and charge it!–Troy
