Emerica Presents Justin “Figgy” Figueroa in ‘FOCUS’, a short day in the life feature with the Californian Baker pro and rail chomper. Therefore, instead of the usual gnarliness we see from Figgy on our screens we instead get an insight into his art and woodwork, the music he makes and some musing on the nature of life and death as he finishes off a P-Stone dedication mural on the back wall of his garden DIY build.
Justin Figueroa is the archetypal crossroads of the Baker and Emerica handrails highways, getting himself a nomination for Skater of the Year award after his part in Emerica’s Made 2 (which, if you live under a handrail shaped rock and somehow missed, you can enjoy in raw form here), and despite being dogged by the injuries naturally occurring from hurling yourself repeatedly into the void then has still carved himself a name synonymous with street-based gnarliness. Have a watch of him in mellow mode below then delve into his footage back catalogue for the other side of Figgy.
“Figgy’s been a part of the Emerica family ever since his early teenage years. He’s been known to go big on and off the board, but it’s been rare we get a glimpse into how Figgy lives his day-to-day, to see what makes Figgy tick. So, join us as we dig a little deeper into Big Fig through this FOCUS episode, tagging along with him as he gets his hands dirty working on his new home in Vista, CA, while chatting about his life, music, traveling, and skating.”
To see how Justin Figueroa’s latest pro shoe – the Emerica Figgy Dose – held up to six weeks of skating in one of the driest summers in a very long time, check out our recent Weartest of said shoe.
