So I totally dig this photo… Can’t say I know Josh although I skated/photographed at CCCC and OC Maryland on 2 occasions that he was there. So I figured If I was going to post something of him maybe ask someone else to say something about him.

….so I asked Rob Mertz and he said…I quote

Hey Jason.

Josh is a big dude. He’d throw up a tucknee invert and his knees would be higher than my head!


Morris Wainwright also threw in….

Josh Marlowe, right? OC Legend

Well there you have it. What more to say? Josh Marlowe a huge OC legend…Nice to be remembered!!

Anymore comments or pics of Josh send em are way.
