Jon Julio has done so much throughout his career, maybe more than anyone else.  Over the years he has built companies (Valo Skates, Dyna Wheels, Synergy Bearings, Runners Project, England Clothing), created and produced events (IMYTA, Blading Cup),  and helped develop a video game.  On top of all that, he had to deal with the bumps and bruises  of his successful  20-year rollerblading career.   Now, he’s controlling his own destiny, investing everything he and his family has into his new venture, Them Skates and the sport he loves.

Aaron Feinberg won the X-Games on his 16th birthday and never looked back.  He was a skater with a park image who wasn’t all about the park and felt the need to prove it.  The evolution of his skating, combined with some calculated sponsor choices, created the path for Aaron to become one of the most respected street skaters in the game.   These days the world is a different place for Aaron and we look back on his career and talk about he’s up to today.
