Welcome to the first episode of Jenk TV!
King (who you may remember from our trip to Chinatown earlier this year) seemed like the ideal character for the first episode. A lot skaters come off super bland on camera, but King is a natural. He’s quick to make a joke, he’s not afraid to interact with the common folk, and at 16 years old, he’s one of the more recognizable faces of the LES skate scene.
Thanks for tuning in and leaving absolutely no negative comments whatsoever.
