21 Mar

He’s been skating upon a solid and strong path of progression over the past two years and his skill speaks for itself. That said, Lifeblood Skateboards is honored and proud to welcome Josh Rodriguez to its team.

In this short video, Josh visited Kevin Kowalski at his very own backyard bowl (which is more like a private skatepark) to rip though an afternoon upon the challenging and unique terrain nestled along the Oregon Coast. Ready for more concrete and pool block, Josh followed up with an evening skate session at Phil Tedder’s bowl before he flew back home the next morning. This young gun is on the rise!
