Joe Milazzo

Mag Minute


I’ve always heard about Joe Milazzo from friends, watched all his video parts, and skated with him a handful of times prior moving to LA from Chicago—always just in awe of his powerful and smooth style. Watching him skate in person is unreal and filming with him is an absolute dream. In September, I took a trip back home for three weeks with a goal in mind [to film a video part with him], this is the first of many you’ll see of Joe. We filmed this and more in just six days. —Nick Hanson (filmer)
