After landing the varial heel flip wallride in 2008’s “A Happy Medium”, John had dreamed of rolling away from a hard flip wallride. Unfortunately after countless attempts and many trips back, the 6 stair wall was skate stopped. John has tried to get the trick on other spots for every AHM video since. In 2019 John finally accomplished his goal and made all of dreams come true after battling this trick for an hour. We love you John!
