John Fitzgerald

On New Year’s Day, 2013 Alien Workshop’s and Vans’ newest am and former Slap One In A Million winner, Big John Fitzgerald, broke the internet with his exclusive straight-to-internet Life Splicing part.

Not since Brian Anderson’s Toy Machine debut had people been so stunned to see a big-man attack massive rails and hubbas with such unbridled exuberance. And you know the old saying, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall,” and at 6’ 4” John hits the deck like a ton of bricks. We’re proud to have the next in a long line of great, openly tall skaters rocking the side-stripe and laying it down for the upcoming Vans video.
