🛹 Johnny Sk8 🤘
Johnny SK8 is the face and pioneer of PLAYSK8. He found a home in the skating community in Venice that quickly became a second family to him. His mentor was Sk8toshi (Satoshi Nakamoto), the famous anon skater and cryptographer who created Bitcoin after being inspired by the decentralization of skate competitions in the 90s. He is hyper competitive and a world renowned competitive athlete that has won medals for skating, surfing, snowboarding, and even holds the world's record for most California burritos eaten in a single sitting.
While Bonez is a prankster in a sometimes dangerous sense, Johnny is a little more lighthearted in his mischief. Although he’d never admit it, he likes to think of himself as a “Robin Hood” esque character, except instead of stealing from the rich he just likes to embarrass them in public.
He got into NFTs after getting caught spray painting graffiti on the front door of the Crypto Venetian in Venice Beach. He was forced to clean it up and learned about what NFTs were from watching people get tours of the Crypto Venetian.

- Born and raised in Venice Beach
- Raised by single mother

His negative characteristics/traits:
