This week on Brando’s World of X, host Brandon Graham was able to grab skateboarder Paul Rodriguez for an almost hour-long conversation.
From his first time at the park and seeing all of the guys he’d watch in videos, to winning Tampa Pro, Paul Rodriguez reflects on it all, in this 2015 interview.
13 years ago, Paul Rodriguez pieced together this run during Tampa Pro 2007. Ultimately earning himself a spot on the podium that year, this run’s always a rad one to revisit. Will we see P-rod at Tampa Pro again this year? Fingers crossed!
Paul Rodriguez gets in the ring with up-and-coming boxing phenom, 15 year old, 4-time national boxing champion, Chantel Navarro, to talk about growing up in LA, the latinx legacy in sport and pushing through pain for something you love. Plus, Paul takes a few punches from the champ herself. Get ready to rumble. The SB Dunk High by Paul Rodriguez is available January 18 in skate shops.
