He’s done it again. One of skateboarding’s greatest shit talkers, Giovanni Reda, has talked his way onto the internet – but this time, he’s with us. Most kids might know him as “That guy on the Berrics” but Reda bugged his way into our hearts when we first got wind of him through his part on Chomp On This, his photography, and Baker Bootleg. (He also currently hosts a cooking show called “Knife Fight” on the Esquire network, which is apparently a thing, but let’s not get into all that.)
So what is this exactly? Well, we’re not sure yet, but for now it’s what Reda does best – filming his constant interrogations of skaters and filmers, totally uncensored for all your tasteless needs. At best we’ll get some interesting insight into what it’s like to be in the van with these guys; at worst we’ll get at least one classic Brooklyn zinger, so it’s a win-win.
For the 2nd episode of “Reda’s Back,” follow along with your host as he gets frisky at Tampa Pro this year.
