On The Grind: John Reeves
Pushing the envelope and having fun while doing it.
Born in the San Diego area, John Reeves was transplanted right into the heyday of skateboarding. While learning how to skate with friends in Mira Mesa, John had no idea that his hobby would help launch a legendary career that still holds wait today.
From video parts in H-Street’s Hokus Pokus and Life’s A Soldier Story, it’s easy to gather what John “The Man” Reeves is all about: Pushing the envelope and having fun while doing it.
John still lives by that mantra today as Co-Owner/Creative Director of Bodega Skateboards, as well as his art project ARSSIA (Artists Ride Skateboards, Skateboarding is Art). John is a free spirit who continues to contribute to the culture that he was raised in. He holds classes for children learning to skate as well, and the best part is, John still rips.
