Who is Jim Greco?

Jim Greco (b. December 25, 1977 in New Haven, Connecticut) is a professional skateboarder.

He was also known in the skateboard community for his binge drinking, drugs, and hard partying lifestyle, although he cleaned up in late 2002 and is now teetotaler. Nowadays, Greco is better known for his outlandish dress style.

Greco currently resides in Hollywood, California.

His sponsors include Baker Skateboards, Independent Trucks, KR3W Clothing, Active and Supra Shoes.

He has appeared as a feature skater in the skateboarding video Baker 3.

Jim Greco is part of a skateboarding crew that calls themselves the Piss Drunx c. mid-to-late 90s to 2000s with him, Erik Ellington, Ali Boulala, Andrew Reynolds, and Dustin Dollin. Most of them have toned down their drinking and others have joined Greco in sobriety.

In 2006, Greco, along with fellow Baker pros Andrew Reynolds and Erik Ellington, partnered up to start a new sunglasses company called Brigada geared towards the skateboard market.
