Skating and building ramps consumed much of George Rocha's childhood.

In this podcast, George, who today owns and operates Iris Skateboards, recounts various tales from his childhood on four wheels. He took a roadtrip to Portland right out of high school, his first taste of the West Coast and a world he had been reading about and seeing pictures of in magazines and videos. He would end up moving to San Francisco just a few years later.

We recorded this episode at George's house and workshop in the Outer Sunset in February 2020.
