This month, we have a Sponsor Me tape coming out of Richmond, Virginia from Josh Swyers. Josh just turned 17 and has been skating for five years. His skating is very unique and he looks very comfortable on his board. Josh has a big bag of tricks and looks like he can adapt to any kind of obstacle put in front of him. Some of the tricks in this video could have been left out, like the 50-50 fingerflip Boneless One, which is more of a circus trick than something that should be included in a Sponsor Me video. But, it shows that Josh is having fun, which is what skating is all about. The pole jam to manual and the pole jams over the stairs are sick, and the wall ride down the nine stair at the end of the video is pretty gangster. Thanks for the video, Josh. You just earned yourself a pair of brand spankin’ new pair of Emerica shoes. —Jeff Henderson
