Personal Quote:

Bo and Luke are essentially good guys. They're just reckless as all hell. Mean as snakes, but in a good way. See more »


Was writing for a skateboarding magazine called Big Brother when he did a story about self-defense equipment, which he tried on himself while Jeff Tremaine (editor for Big Brother) filmed it. These led to the Big Brother Videos Shit, Number Two, and Boob, which helped raise the profile for LandSpeed presents: CKY, CKY2K, and CKY3, which were all produced by Bam Margera. See more »
