Jahmir Brown Talks Switching From DGK to Palace

Jahmir Brown is having a banner year in 2020, which has included dropping a standout part for DC, a ton of other coverage, and making a switch from DGK to Palace. He talks about the latter in his new interview with The Bunt, which dropped yesterday.

It was really natural. The last two years, Palace was coming to Philly a lot. I was just hanging out with them, and became really good friends with Chewy and Brooks. And I was going to L.A., and started skating with Lucas Puig a lot. It was tight to get to know everybody as friends.

Towards the end at DGK, I just had a different vision for myself. I guess the plan that was going on was happening. I just didn’t agree with it at the time. So I was like, “I’m just gonna leave. And I’m down to leave for nothing.”

I ended up hitting up Chewy like, “Can you hook it up with a board or two? I don’t even care. I’m not trying to get on the team or anything. I’m just trying to get some boards every now and then so I don’t have to buy boards all the time.” It started with that. Then—after a couple of days of talking—they were like, “You’re not gonna be on flow. You’re too good for all that. We fuck with you as a person. You’re mad cool. We want you on the team.”

Sounds like a natural progression to us. Listen to the full interview above. The bit about Palace starts at 23:40

Alf was also a pro-skater back in the day.

He started skating when he was 10 and turned pro when he was just 16 years old.

He thinks that skateboarding has somehow helped him be successful in business.

“Skateboarding, it’s for the most part, a really inconsistent sport, which means you definitely have to have some patience and some perseverance…It’s allowed me to think outside the box and apply that ‘out of the box’ thinking to run my business”

Redbull’s Good Work Series features skater-owned and skater-operated businesses.

You can watch the first episode here or on the Red Bull Skateboarding YouTube Channel.
