Jenkem – Pontus Alv Interview

So I was in New York a week or so ago when Dan(Rogers) was out here for an Asphalt Yacht Club event and I met Ian from Jenkem. All I can say is that was pretty easy for me to look him straight in the eye and tell him he’s doing the best thing in skateboard journalism right now. I know I know. The phrase skateboard journalism sounds ridiculous to say, but what the hell else am I going to call it. Skateboarding is one of the ballsiest things in the world, but the media that covers it can unbelievably boring. Not Jenkem though, Ian is killing it. Yes we link to a lot of their stories, that’s because we’re lazy and they’re not. It’s a match made in heaven.

So they did an interview with Pontus Alv. I love that the first questions pokes a finger in the eye of American skaters about how they view European skaters. Check it all out here:
