Support Local Athletes

Every Tuesday we will be featuring a local Athlete, whether its a sport like Football, MMA or even Skateboarding. This week we would like to feature Kaneohe, Hawaii’s own Jason Park. Now I don’t know Jason Park personally, but growing up trying to skate I always used to watch him and the other more seasoned Hawaii skaters shred the parks up. It was only a matter of time that Jason Park started getting the coverage and support he deserves. Below is a few of Jason’s most recent video releases. Featuring a video he & film maker Brett Novak created, showcasing his amazing talent as an innovative wood pusher while giving you a glimpse of the beautiful island of Oahu, a place many find magical and place we call home.

“Jason has been an underground board control wizard for some time. He’s like a mad scientist having a blast with his abilities. Never Been Done? Hell, this part has things no one has dreamed of. You have to watch this.” – THRASHER MAGAZINE

We would like to congratulate Jason with all the success and blessings he has been receiving & we hope to see you continue to grow and thrive all while representing Hawaii. Keep GRINDING Jason & remember to always Defend Hawaii! Thats it for this weeks #SupportLocalAthletes post, stay tuned for next week and see what else talent Hawaii has to offer.
