Boo Johnson is a professional skateboarder for DGK, Grizzly Grip Tape, Diamond Supply Co, Ethika, Remind Insoles, Bones Wheels, Thrasher Mag, Weedmaps, and Raw Papers. On top of that he owns Pharmacy skate shop in Long Beach, California and runs his own clothing brand Just Have Fun.
Boo is a pro lifer and it shows. The amount of positivity and motivation he brings to the world is unmatched by anyone I’ve ever met. Constantly thinking about the wellbeing of others can be overwhelming, but not for Boo. He’s a beaming light people strive to be and the man earned it all by himself.
Reed Stark knew Boo in the past and showed him kendama at Coachella 2017, but not everyone falls in love with the toy immediately. At the 2018 X Games in Minneapolis, Reed taught him how to do an earthturn and it was over. The sheer joy that Boo had in that moment proved to Reed and everyone else at Sweets that he would be a great candidate for a signature kendama. Skateboarding and BMX hasn’t had a very friendly past and we think maybe kendama will be the common denominator that finally connects these two communities. It’s time to Just Have Fun. As Boo would say it, “Peace & Love Worldwide.”
