We caught up with John Cardiel for a short interview at the House Of Vans in Berlin earlier in the year to talk about how he became the only skater in a two bit town in the mid west, getting up after getting knocked down and some of his dreams.
Although looking back it was a good laugh, but I remember grinding my teeth over that fucking snare drum, but hey, Cards is probably one of the most inspirational characters I think I've met. His whole energy and positive outlook on everything had me fanning out after this quick talk. Luckily we got to hang and slam drinks later in the evening while he dj'ed under his way too awesome moniker Dj Juan Love.
