Jono Power Interview. Intro/Interview by Chris Yeoh, extra questions by the Fans.
Back in 2007 Darren Kaehne and I were at Waterloo Skatepark to watch Ian Gray compete in an ‘Es Game of Skate comp. Ian had come down with some Newcastle crew and most of them were in the comp too. After one of Ian’s mates had finished a game of skate Darren said to me “Keep an eye on this guy, he’s got some pop.” That mate of Ian’s was Jono Power. For those that know Darren he has an uncanny ability to spot raw talent years before anyone else. Sure enough within a couple of years Jono was on the team and ever since he’s been pushing the level of street skating in Newcastle to new levels. Sometimes referred to as Nollie Power, Jono is a calm individual who puts his heart into everything he does in life. I’m stoked to know the guy.
