Jamie Skinner shreds. He’s been bar spinning for a decade and knows how to boost a quarter. Skindog regularly goes huge at the skatepark and on the streets. Nothing really phases him, apart from dirt...


He was noticed by Tim Ruck a couple years ago who put him on The Boarding House team, before being picked up by Radio Bikes in 2011.


The Exeter hardman is on his bike pushing himself nearly everyday. Watch out for Jamie Skinner at your local park, rail or comp.
