Ripper of the Week: John E. | #catcharip


A post shared by John (@charmoffense) on


Congratulations to #RipperoftheWeek John E. of Corpus Christi, Texas! His creative style and fun loving attitude put big ole smiles on our faces. John fully exemplifies #catcharip, so picking him as this weeks ripper was a no brainer. We just sent him a swag bag with a new Tactics deck and a set of his favorite Mini Logo trucks. Get to know John in the quick Q&A below and give him a follow at @charmoffense for more insta magic.

Keep your entries coming and you could be next week's winner! Remember, winners aren't chosen by their skill but by their creativity, style, stoke, and most importantly, how much fun they're having.

Hey John, how long have you been ripping?

I started skating like 18 years ago but I'd say within that is probably a solid 13-14 years of skating.

Favorite parks or spots to #catcharip?

My favorite spot is a ditch called The Wave.

You've been battling a back injury for almost ten years, how have you dealt with it? What helps you skate through the pain?

Skating just feels so damn good. My back tends to go out 3-5 times per year but it was really bad in 2016 and the beginning of this year. A month or so after injury I start to feel okay so I just gotta hop on a board and skate. It's like meditating in a way because I'm not thinking about anything else. The worst days of my life have always ended with me going skating and completely clearing my head. That's why I keep doing it.

Any thanks, shout outs, or things you'd like to add?

Thanks would be to Tactics obvs. Thanks to my wife for filming even when it takes me an hour to land a trick. Shout out to all the locals of Hilltop Skatepark in CC, TX. The only 100% consistent part of my skate set up for the last 4-5 years is riding Mini Logo trucks, I'll give them a shout out for that!
