When we started @streetplantbrand I never really imagined that we would “sponsor” or work with a younger Skater, and we certainly weren’t and aren’t looking to build a traditional team in any way. But when I met #StreetPlantBattalion Pro Team Rider Joey Jett @joey__jett things changed, Joey changed them. His Skating Spoke to me, Inspired me and made me Smile. His Creative and Old Soul Approach to Skating wasn’t fraught with irony, but instead was Blossoming with Sincerity. Kristian Svitak @kristiansvitak and I agreed, there was room in the van and in our Lives for Joey.
Since we met Joey over the Summer of 2016, we have seen him Grow, Evolve and Progress as a Skater, Artist, Photographer, and Videographer. His Vision for his Video “The Dream” which he has Directed and Edited (release date to be announced soon) is unlike any other Skate Video I have ever seen, it’s Story Telling and Depth Resonates and Motivates. The recent Premiere in Baltimore attracted over 500 people and raised $25,000 to benefit @jakesskatepark. Joey is carving a Singular Path with his Skateboarding and we (@streetplantbrand) are Honored to Know and to Support Him!
