Some people's trash is other people's art ... or, in George Rocha's case, their business.
In this episode, George tells the story of his cross-country move to San Francisco. He found his own place in the Outer Sunset, a rental where he eventually built a backyard pool to skate in. A few years later, he started taking his old skateboards and making new ones out of them, the inspiration for Iris Skateboards, which George owns and operates today.

We recorded this podcast at George's home and workshop in the Outer Sunset in February 2020.
