As Seen on Nike “Throwdown”
For their 2013 “Throwdown” national TV ad campaign, Jim Bell and the JBSR team was hired by Nike to design and build a skate ramp for extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham. The TV spot featured a series of videos in which everyday athletes challenged, pushed, and inspired one another by throwing down with their best move. The moves were amazing, but Wheelz was a definite standout! Check out Wheelz epic wheelchair backflip on the JBSR ramp at :18 of the video.
Skateboarding ramps are a safe and fun way to connect families, friends, and communities — getting them physically active together. We’re living in a time in which it’s more important than ever that we teach our kids the values of family, personal connections, community, and maintaining health through physical activity. Our Mission at JBSR is to design and build affordable, premium-quality ramps to help bring these values through skateboarding to you and your family.
