Been going to Berkeley park a lot and skating with Chubby. Who’s Chubby you ask?
This is Ben; everyone calls him Chubby. He’s a thirteen year old kid that skates the Berkeley park more then anyone and pretty much has a new trick up his sleeve every time I see him. He calls Drehobl anywhere from five to twenty times a day and never leaves a message. He’s the kid on the left hand side of our epiclyTRIFE header. Basically he’s pretty epic and gets the first ever epiclyTRIFE interview.
