On this episode of The I Heart Costa Mesa Show, we interview pro skateboarder, founder / owner of Intro 2 Skateboarding - and now, Costa Mesan - Jon "Deezle" Depoian. We discuss the art, the action and the culture of skateboarding, how skating has changed his life for the better, what he loves best about coaching the next gen of young skaters - and how he got that sweeeeeet hookup to teach kids' classes at Volcom's private skatepark in Westside Costa Mesa.

Depoian teaches skateboarding to local kids over at Volcom's private indoor skatepark at their HQ in Westside Costa Mesa:

The skatepark is "by invite only," but very cool if you can swing it (or signing your kids up for skate classes with Intro 2 Skateboarding will do the trick.)
