Team / JF Boily
This is one of downhill skateboarding’s true legends still in the living form. During the early 2000s he spent more time on the podium than he did on the crapper. J.F. is always the one making the rest of us laugh with hilarious antics and a great memory for our embarrassing moments. When J.F. skates, his style is so smooth it looks silky and he can run such clean lines through even the hairiest of asphalt. After back to back victories at the Street Missile race ZigZag Attack for the first two years of its existence, J.F.’s name was added to the Comishin model as Ian has never won diddly.
