Pro skater and entrepreneur Jason Rogers joins us on The Drinking Buddy Show to talk about his new beverage venture Yatta! We’ll talk about his unique childhood as a sponsored bmx bike rider and skateboarder that globetrotted while still in high school. We then discuss his stint at Hapa magazine, taking a leadership role at a skate shoe company, producing skater videos, and founding Autobahn, his performance skateboard wheel company. Then we chat about what inspired him to create America’s first chuhai company, Yatta!, and what his plans are for the future.
