Daniel Cuervo a high speed high energy blaster originally from the Dominican Republic, stops by on his way to the airport headed to Qatar for a contest. He has a chat, picks up some backup wheels, and hits the road. He has his longtime Dominican friend Tony Bernal with him. We chat Olympics, moving to the US, Couch Surfing, meeting and skating with your heroes, and sleeping on the streets to keep the dream alive.

Daniel is a powerful, passionate skater, and it’s awesome to hear the perspective of moving from this small Caribbean Island to California to live the dream. Dominican Republic sends lots of baseball players to the US, but Daniel decided to bring us something different.

Hope you enjoy.

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!
