It’s no secret that Dashawn Jordan is a Berrics favorite. Very early in his skate career, long before becoming pro for Business & Co. (and, later, riding for Toy Machine) we welcomed him in The Berrics at every opportunity; he’s a super friendly guy who just happens to have the Midas touch when filming. He comes in, he gets the clip, he chops it up with us, gets some more clips, ba-ba-bing ba-da-boom.
Jordan gets the 3-hour-long interview treatment over at The Nine Club this week, revealing his trajectory from Zombie grombie to U.S.A. National Men’s Street Skateboarding Champion (holy shit, that’s a mouthful). And, of course, he touches on that moment a few years ago when he had to call Berrics co-founder Steve Berra and let him know that he was leaving SOVRN:
“We’re all still close but it was the heat of the moment where I was so nervous, and I didn’t process anything they were saying. I was just like, ‘Bro, I’m just trying to do what I know I want to do and say what I want to say… It was a crazy time.”
And now he’s a big success, a national champ riding for Toy Machine with a bunch of irons in the fire. But we ain’t mad at ya, Dashawn—we got a lot of love for ya. And you’re obviously welcome to come teach us how to lazer flip any time. Watch his hella long interview, above!
Jordan is a well-oiled machine and he has busted his ass for The Berrics consistently since 2015, and in 2016 we released his Recruit with an ender that was later nominated for our #BerricsGnarliestTrick contest. Check out some of his work with us, below:
