It’s no secret, we love us some Frank Gerwer. We met back on a CONS trip in Asia a few years back and have pretty much kept in contact ever since. I’m not saying we became best buds or anything, but we’re tight enough that I could pester him into doing a skim of our latest book, Jenkem Vol. 3.
Hopefully this quick vid gives you a pretty thorough look at some of the features in the book. We didn’t include every single one of them (because we gotta preserve some mystery here), but if you’re on the fence about whether $50 is a worthy price to pay for a book about skateboarding, this might help convince you.
Coincidentally, Silas Baxter-Neal was in the DLX warehouse the day this was filmed, and Frank roped him into his “office” to be a part of it, so you get two amazing skaters’ perspectives for the price of one.
