Is Alex Broskow going to skate for Them? That was one of my questions to Jon Julio. A few days after the
death of Valo, Jon Julio announced his new venture, a 100% skater owner aggressive inline skating brand, THEM skates.
Until here it all seems perfect, but to start a skate brand with a low budget it’s not as simple as most of the skaters might think. In this podcast, Jon and I talked about the adversities and the plans for the FUTURE of his new brand. - Ricardo Lino.
Tons of friends took a trip out to Woodward West in Tehachapi, CA to celebrate the 40th birthday of Jon Julio, This is what was documented. Good times with good friends, too many to list. Thanks Miguel and WWW!

Thank you for the best of times! 15 epic years - and we have been through a lot. It’s been an amazing run! We created something that won’t be forgotten, but given that our business structure has not worked for some time, we have mutually agreed to close our doors.
To the supporters, my family and my friends, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! Thank you for following the brand. I am so fortunate to have been able to share the last 15 years with you all. It’s truely been a blessing for me to have had you all be a part of it.
R.I.P Valo. To be continued. - Jon Julio.
