When you've been around skateboarding as both a professional skateboarder and working in the industry for this long, the stories like that are endless. We've been working with Jason Rothmeyer on planning and organizing skateboaring events for more than a decade now, where he has been the lead judge and chief critic of everything behind the scenes.
