Quick chat with Karl Watson

Hi Karl!

You are fully devoted to skateboarding... What are you into these days?

Yes, my mission in life is to share the gift of skateboarding with the world. So that’s what I’ve been up to.

In your new book "Jonas Meets Jack" it appears classic San Francisco streets spots of the golden era. Why did you choose this nice walk through these mythical spots? And, How important is it to tell the new generations that all this stuff existed?

Well, San Francisco is integral to modern day street skating. We paved the way in the 80s and 90s. I felt the need to share these iconic spots because they are truly a part of my experience.

What can we expect next, new adventures from Jonas and his friends?

Good question. I’d have to say yes. More adventurous skateboarding experiences with Jonas and the crew.

Anything to add?

Here is my very first photo of me skating. This was taken in 1988
