F@*king Charlie Blair meets Jim Gray at Inkgenda/Powerflex HQ and they have a chat along with Charlie’s buddies Drew Down from the LBC, and F@*king Travis Mock.

Charlie is one of my favorite skaters because he is raw, real, and damn talented. I enjoy and love watching him bust out, and when it comes to conversation, he doesn’t hold much back either. Hope you enjoy getting to experience this skateboarding madman. We talk a variety of subjects from the Olympics, to Duane Peters, Washington Street, Soccer Dads, Managers, Shitty Doctors, Stitches, the sadness of watching people skate who don’t have fun, and much more.

Charlie rides for Powell and I am stoked to have watched him ripping for years.

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!
