That's Johnny Schillereff, founder of Element, addressing the crowd along with a long line of other company founders. Back in the late 80's, I used to live in upstate New York and would go to the same local skateboarding contests as Johnny in Albany. He was super good and skated the sponsored divisions long before I was ready to step it up like that. I was never friends with him back then, but we've met a few times recently and talked about those days. He ended up being the first am on New Deal back then. I ended up going to college in Tampa and am still here today.
