QUICK TEN!!! JOHN PATTERSON

John Patterson, a familiar face in the Victoria skateboarding scene for many years, has been there and done that.  Originally born in Canada, then moving south to such places as Hawaii and Los Angeles.  He has lived in various places all over North America for short periods.  Only to wind up back in Canada where he says, “he loves it.”  Learning how to skate in L.A. around 15 or 16, he grew even more addicted, when moving back to Canada at 19, meant living up the road from Ben & Ted Degros.  Now at 28 living and working in Victoria, he’s been getting out and shooting photos for CONFUSIONmedia, and filming the odd trick for the new DNA, Concyse, and Instrumental video.  Between being a cook, a construction worker, a fully legit party animal,  and an all time chilling champion.  He’s showing that he’s got skills when it counts, and out of all the different people who have skated with him, I think everyone will agree with me on that one.
