BEHIND THE SOCKS
Some say it was a balmy afternoon. It could’ve been a Tuesday if it wasn’t already the end of the week. But, it WAS September. An unassuming, ethically-themed skarfing establishment and seminal OG skateboard magazine writer/artist/musician/photographer, Mofo collided with Cindi Ferreira Busenhart— long-time, low-profile, NorCal action-sports’ MAVENtrepreneur. The wheels of creativity begin to churn, as an idea began to take shape.
Cindi got to thinking and one thought blended with another; Mo’s images, some more ideas, some technology, the jalapeños - BIFF-BANG-BOOM! she synthesizes a potent business concept swiftly into action. She enlists OG skateboard-legend Keith Meek —master artist, digital graphics/pool ripper. She incorporates hard-rockin’ Las Vegas restauranteur Gigli Locatelli. Completing the quartet is 80s Professional skateboarding icon/half-pipe crusher/mountain-bike pioneer/businessman, Rob Roskopp, forming MERGE4—a sock company.
