A lot of people claim they used to skate. Joe “Big Wheels” Dravis really means it. On Sunday, a video popped up on the @cas_primos Instagram account featuring Joe doing a flawless invert in an outfit that is definitely fit for a Mother’s Day celebration. It quickly went viral. Buzzfeed did a little digging and published an article yesterday afternoon that provides a bit more background information about who this mystery skater is.
So who is the mystery skater man? According to Harris Miller who took the video, the skateboarder’s name is Joe “Big Wheels” Dravis. Miller says Dravis is super popular with his crew of Baltimore, Maryland, neighborhood kids.
“He doesn’t own a skateboard himself anymore,” Miller told BuzzFeed. “He says he’s been too busy paying for other things to buy a nice one of his own, but whenever he stops where we are hanging out, we always insist he shows us a trick on one of our boards! Me and some of the other guys who know him are trying to pool some money together to buy him a nice board.”
