Part 2 of my discussion with Daewon Song and Torey Pudwill of Thank You Skate Co at Inkgenda Sticker Company / Powerflex Wheels Headquarters and Museum Mancave

Daewon has a movie about him simply named “Daewon”, Torey started Grizzly Griptape at 11, Jim has done just about everything you can do in skateboarding. Put us together and we’ve got a lot to talk about. Skateboarding connects generations. Torey is 29, Daewon 44, Jim 56, and we even had a unexpected drop in by 70’s skate legend Dale Smith who is 68…. Beers were consumed, we talked about our views on skateboarding life, some skate politics, and other crap and we are all still enjoying the ride.

My audio skills and host skills leave a lot to be desired, we are learning more about recording and editing, so please bear with us as we learn and hope you enjoy the show.

Host Info

Jim Gray

Jim Gray is the luckiest man in skateboarding. Jim started skateboarding about 45 years ago, got sponsored at 14, turned pro at 18, competed against the legends and pioneers of skateboarding and has skated with every generation since and never stopped.

Jim sold ads for Transworld Skateboarding Magazine for a few years before starting Acme Skateboards in 1991. Jim’s Acme/Abc Board Supply company made several million skateboards for themselves and other major and small brands in his US based factory. Jim also has made and sold millions of wheels, trucks, clothing, and just about everything else associated with skateboarding. Jim has sponsored and paid hundreds of athletes and did some of the most unique and creative advertising in skateboarding.

Jim has always called bullshit and always will, and skateboarding and his connection with skateboarders have been flowing through his blood for 40 plus year now.

Today, Jim operates Powerflex Wheels(a relaunch of an icon and sponsor from his youth), Inkgenda Sticker Printing(printing stickers for Volcom, O’Neill, VonZipper, Fucking Awesome, NikeSB, Black Label, Jokers Skate Shop and hundreds of iconic brands), TEiM Brands (a licensing/branding company focused on apparel printables), and Tremont (a clothing brand for big guys) and now BLEAV in Skateboarding! Luckily they all involve skateboarding and give him an excuse to skate!
