Josh Hurley- Executive Director
Josh Hurley is a pro skateboarder from Dallas, Texas and co-owner of Now Skateboards, as well as a skateboarding instructor. Josh has over 25 years of experience in the industry, having skated for Gringo Skateboards, Converse Skate Shoes (flow), and Rock Star Energy Drink (flow), among others. Ninja Bearings turned him pro in 2008.
Despite his success on the skateboard, Josh struggled with substance abuse and alcoholism as a teen and young adult. He continued to wrestle with an alcohol addiction until shortly after the birth of his son Flip, with whom he credits for giving him the strength to "flip" his life. Josh has abstained from alcohol since 2011. His difficulties as a child and young adult inspired him to dedicate his life to helping others make better choices, using his passion for skateboarding as a tool for transformation.
Josh is a movie buff and has an unnatural affection for Ranch dressing. He spends the majority of his free time at local skateboarding events, helping promote the lifestyle he loves.
