Get Familiar: Jon Nguyen

By OhioSkateUniv

I got the chance to meet Jon Nguyen during the 1st Annual Cowtown Showdown in Columbus, OH. Blueprint Skateboards were there to do a signing, a demo, and to judge the main competition all over a three-day span so I got to talk to him a number of times over the weekend. Jon seems like a laid back kind of guy and looked most at home riding his skateboard. His style on board is effortless, even when he lands a sketchy trick, it still has that style to it.

Recently, I came across some new footage of Jon skating, which prompted me to write this article. The video was raw footage from Revolution Wheels that had me awestruck a number of times. I had only gotten to see Jon skate the assortment of ramps and flatground at Cowtown but had not had the opportunity to see him do actual street skating. I was impressed with his skating before seeing the raw footage.

I’m going to wrap this article up by letting Jon’s skating do the talking and, if you’re like me, you’ll be back to watch these parts again. I would expect to see more of him in the future, so keep your eyes peeled. Also, for reference in the next video, he is regular.

Jon rides for Blueprint Skateboards, Adidas Footwear, Matix Clothing, Revolution Wheels, Krux Trucks and Skateworks Skateshop.
