The Genesis crew out of Seattle has slowly become part of the Jenkem family over the past couple of years. Genny, as their fans lovingly refer to them, is made up of a bunch of quality humans who have also helped us out with producing site content many times now.
We wanted to help get the word out about the crew and offer them another avenue to share their skating with the world. We approached head honcho Ian Ostrowski about filming a recurring segment for the site to satiate the viewers who are a fan of his crew’s prolific output. The end result was this series, dubbed “G-FILES.”
This is just a peek into the Genesis world, so watch as they travel together, laugh their asses off, and continue to progress and impress. Keep an eye out for more episodes and let us know what guest skater they should throw in the van for the next installment.
