Malakye Now: 170+ Jobs! | Johan Malkoski | Trivia Winner | WFX Defined

Johan Industrial Profile

How do you introduce Johan Malkoski?  People who understand him probably are willing to walk barefoot over broken glass for him.  People who don’t understand him probably want to let the air out of his tires. No introduction will really do the trick.  Born in Massachusetts, school of life in Steamboat, Colorado, and now continuing on in the great Pacific Northwest, Johan is to the snowboard industry as Jeff Bridges is to The Big Lebowski.
