I have so much respect for Scott Johnston for retiring when he felt his productivity was slowing down. And now he’s got a whole new chapter in life. Great example and I wish more pros would follow it and make space for new skaters coming up.

He also took initiative and learned a good skill in his spare time, where most pros just party.  Cool to heard him talk about his move to adidas and how it wasnt just for more money (im sure that played a role) but  taking his career as far and pushing himself as a designer.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

the notion that part of the reason he retired was to get out of the way of up and comers is noble as hell. almost hard to believe. dude is a saint in that regard.

I think that’s why he was willing/able to step aside gracefully.  He had something else to do.  Admire him a lot

Just finished reading the full thing. What a great person. Love the humility and grounded nature of his comments. This is the kind of human I aspire to be.

That interview left me with the same impression that all of his video parts did in the best way possible.

i've been of/on homeless since a young age and kind of a dirtbag asides so i always thought scott johnston would judge me and my messy griptape. stopped me from really enjoying him back in the day [asides FTC, that vid went hard in the paint].
i couldn't front on his bsts on the wheels at brown marble either. 411 #1.

Yea im younger and when I watched scotts bobshirt he talked about barry mcgee doing graphics, I did a bunch of research into the brand and got stoked.

Best dude.

One of my favorite SJ moments is in a Big Brother video where he freaks out on Cameron Postforoosh for puking in a boat and refusing to jump in the water after getting vomit on himself.

“Just get in the fucking water!!!”

Hahaha

I think Scott is among the very select few who never had one bad photo, or clip. even his swongo push is amazing

I totally forgot / never saw this photo. Maybe due to the lack of footage. Would love to see that make.
I always credited Gershon for this trick; years later in some TWS video, I think.

another great interview from chops
