How is the life of a pro skateboarder from UK ?

It’s been super fun so far, wouldn’t change anything. Meeting a lot of good people along the way and going to some amazing places. Always enjoy being back in England and looking forward to spending a little bit of time there in the summer. It’s a shame that I can’t be there more but I’m enjoying the parks, ramps and sessions that California has to offer.

What is the future plans for SB ?

Just keep doing what i’m doing. Working on a part for an upcoming blind video, just trying to film and stuff around contests.(we at shredders lodge were kinda early / late with the interview, so Sam finished his part in the mean time)

Are you living the dream ?
Always, I just try and enjoy everything that i’m doing, even if i’m hurt or not skating or I have “boring” jobs to do. I figure if you enjoy just existing then all the fun stuff becomes way more fun.

What would be your ( WET ) dream project ?

I dunno really, skate trip with friends, where there is no pressure or time constraints.

Anything else ?

Sleep when you’re tired.
