^When u show up 2 the NY spot and notice NJ hieroglyphics on the wall…

It’s hard being the low-key most important geographic region in all of skateboarding (if not American culture altogether) without some of your parliament members getting highlighted more than others. Not everyone gonna be Fetty Wap or Ishod Wair :)

Ron has been one of my favorites since I saw an #early #web #clip (you had to actually download those) of him skating Eatontown rink and switch flipping the PSE&G big five back in maybe ~2002. Just as we are huge advocates of #happy #rap #music, we’re also big advocates of happy skateboarding. Ron happens to be one of that all-too-rare sub-genre’s greatest practitioners. Not everything needs to be an epic bro.

On the flip side, got a bit *weird* with this remix since it didn’t make sense to just toss another funk song under it. Been heavy on the Nick Jensen 11th Hour revisitations this fall, and maybe the spaced out trippy vibez had a rub-off effect on this vid — at for least the first half. Footage sourced from Ron’s “Under the Hudson” part, plus some bonus bits. Filmed by R.B. Umali.

BTW front noseslide fakie, half cab nose shuv, switch front shuv off a curb is top three most #onbrand line in the history of this sk8 blog ;)

Alternate YouTube Link. Check this old [2013] favorite after.

FWIW Reggie Noble is still cooler than your favorite rapper from the nineties.

Have a good weekend. Go skate Jersey maybe ;)
