Bryson Farrill and Dakota Olave join Jim Gray at Powerflex Wheels, Inkgenda Sticker HQ and chat about skateboarding and TIKTOK… About a month ago I had never heard of TIKTOK so I went and checked it out, made a profile (@grayslide same as my instagram) and made a post and got one follower LOL…..  Dakota Olave (@dakotaolave on Instagram and TikTok) has 2.1 Million followers on TikTok making him a TikTok superstar. Bryson Farrill (@brysonfarrill on Instagram and TikTok) is a local San Diego skateboarding ripper with a great family, a great style, and a big bag of tricks, and a Powerflex Team rider.

So we talk about skateboarding, TikTok-ing, reading ball shaving ads and more. This was a fun show, and I was stoked to see Dakota has seen the light, and now focuses on having fun skateboarding and not wrecking himself, true progress. These two are good friends and good humans, last time they visited me they were collecting products to help a friend who was running skate contests whose house burned down and so did all the prizes so they were collecting more and delivering them to him, so these boys know how to give back too which makes it even better.

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!
