Setting the stage: Josh Silva is one of those guys that is always on the front lines but is constantly flying under the radar. He’s in most of the videos we make and delivers and endless supply of technical balance tricks. Here’s a little interview we did with him while he was in Portland Oregon recently. I’ll stop talking now, check out what he has to say.
Name: Josh Silva
Hometown: San Leandro,ca
How long have you been riding FGFS?
I started riding Fgfs in 2012.
What got you into riding?
I was riding bmx and working at area cycles in Castro valley, I watched Fgfs start coming up and wanted to play around with it. Next thing you know it’s the only bike I own.
Who’s your favorite FGFS Rider?
Id say either Andy sparks ⚡️ or Gus Molina. Two ogs I’m proud to call homies.
Fruit or Vegetables?
Veggies all day
La Croix or Gatorade?
Gatorade, I’m a simple man haha.
How was your recent trip to Portland?
Portland was so rad, spots were everywhere and nobody had any issues with us riding really. Felt really good to get away from life and just ride again.
Quick, hit me with a memorable moment.
Definitely back flopping into The Bay during Super Bowl Sunday 2016 😩 (Relive it HERE)
We all know you got that balance, and a way with the ladies, but what would you consider to be the “Josh Silva Signature” move?
Well everybody in the Fgfs world knows me for my hang fives. So I’d have to say that’s me haha.

Chrome Industries – 415 workboots
Plans for the future?
Honestly I have big dreams just like a lot of people my age, I just want to ride bikes,work hard, travel, make good money, have fun and take care of the people that take care of me.
