Skater Focus – Johnny Lozano – Sure Skateboards – NYC Skateboard Lessons

Two weeks ago I was helping Maribeth McHugh teach her Sunday morning group lesson at the Houston street park. I started watching another skater in the park. I immediately noticed his ripping, steezy style and that he was consistently nailing very technical tricks. We started talking and he turned out to be a super nice and modest guy.

Johnny is from Houston Texas and skates for the Austin based Tekgnar Skate Shop. He is up in NYC studying law at New York University,this is his final year. He did his undergrad at the University of Texas in Austin, majoring in Political Science and Spanish. He’s also currently employed at a law firm doing litigation work.

I’m totally stoked to have Johnny join the Sure Skateboards Crew. As you can imagine he’s super busy with school and work so he will only be helping us out a little bit here and there. But more important, because Sure likes to use skateboarding as a medium that shows the value of hard work and consistent effort. We want to have him aligned with us as a positive example of a great skater and a hard working student.

Here’s a quote from Johnny regarding his NYC skate experiences;

“I love skating in NYC much more than Texas because you don’t have to drive to a skatepark; the whole city is a playground and New York seems to know how to take care of its skateboarders (the parks here are kept in great condition).”
