In this episode we speak with Jack Smith, the first person known to have ridden a skateboard across the United States; the 1976 trip took 32 days and covered nearly 3,000 miles. Smith helped create the blueprint for SkateIDSA and has been at many of the most epic moments in skate history. This interview is definitely worth a listen.
