I first met Jball at the Epic Comp late last year and was way stoked on his riding. I’d posted up his edits and photos before but had never seen him ride with my own two eyeballs. I was impressed.And he won. He’s been putting out all sorts of solid stuff lately and really seems to have a damn good time on his bike. I hit him up about picking his brain a bitand he was more than happy to oblige. Hell he sent me some dope photos the next day (shouts to Omar Sebai!). Anywho, this is 11 questions with Jay Ball aka Jball…
1. You know the drill…ASL? Haha. Really though name, age, locale and years riding…all that biz.
JB: My name is Johnathan Ball, pretty much everybody I know calls me JBall though, 17 years old, currently residing in the good old OC, and been riding those bikes that don’t stop pedaling coming up on 4 years now.
2. Pretty sure people were surprised and equally stoked to see you take EPIC comp. How’d you feel about that?
I was probably just as surprised as everyone else. This being one of my first Pro comps I didnt think Id match up against all the bigger dudes there, haha. Definitely stoked when my name was called.
