Justin won a Don Grant Jam a few years back. He came out of nowhere, started hucking huge impossibles, doing all these other tricks that I didn’t know the name of. It was great. Kid is down to talk about life too, he has a perspective worth considering, and I say that as a certifiable grumpy old man. Thanks for making this happen mijo!

My current obsession is: spending time with my two children! I love making them laugh and smile. They are my world!
If I could change one thing about the world it would be: for everyone to get along, it’s easy bein’ nice!
Choose one: Being able to Fly or Being able to Turn Invisible: definitely turn invisible, I’m scared of heights, hahaha.
Whoever is reading this should try: do at least one nice thing for yourself and someone else everyday.
For my next trick I will: try to have more fun and not take it way too seriously.
I give my thanks to: all the people who have supported me in life. ALSO, huge shoutout to the awesome folks at Pops for takin’ a chance on ya boy!
