Jason Hines has spent his entire career behind the scenes building events and he has been responsible for some of the biggest action sports events in the world and beyond, and he’s put out fires at all of them. I’m talking Red Bull, X Games, ASA Entertainment, and more. ….but he’s so much more than that. On the podcast, we talk about race throughout his life, inline skating in the ’90s in South Florida, all the events, Red Bull, and more.
