When was the last time you really won big time?
Last time I was at Martini Bar.
When was the time you really lost big time ?
That was when I was playing beachvolley at Roskilde and found out that the bowl contest was about to start, then I just had to loose really quick, so I had time to go and change and then warm up for the bowl.
When I travel, I always bring,
Toothbrush, and a clean pair of underwear. And a bag of M&M’s peanuts
Best travel advice I can give is,
Don’t have a plan, or if you have a plan just be loose about it.
Best life advice I can give is,
Don’t wait for stuff to happen, it almost never does, so go seek what you want.
Are you good with money (do you plan, safe it, cash in or blow it)?
Bit of both, if you blow it go earn some more 😉
Best travel memory you want to share?
When I was driving on the westside of USA, we had a deal that every time that we have crossed a 1000km we had to have a celebration beer, but most of the times we were driving and just noticed it a little later and then we had beers anyway. But when we was driving throgh Arizona I had my eye on the counter, so 5km before i decided to take a sideroad 3-4km from the main road, and stop the car on the next 1000km. We all went on top of the roof put on Volbeat and having a beer while playing air guitar in the middle of the desert.
When I do not skateboard I,
Work, workout at The Rehab, Yin Yoga, hanging out at Alis, spending time with friends, spending time with my girl, making some homemade shit.
My fitness program is,
Yin Yoga once a week at The Rehab, 3 times Funktional training, stretching everyday.
Do you care about your health ?
Yeah it’s important.
Anything that concerns you at the moment?
That people eat to much meat
When I get old I want to,
Still be crushing on my boards, doesn’t matter if it’s gonna be on a surfboard, skateboard.
I would NEVER,
Eat a whole muscat nut
I would like to see more of,
Hugo on the international scene
That one time where I was in jail because of,
I’ve never had to go to jail, but a few times been searched because I lived in a visitation zone. Even tried once to run a cop down because he jumped out from a bush, but they didn’t do anything about it because they were looking for another guy.
I should do more of,
Skating but will get to that in 2017 when my shoulder is stable again
My future looks like,
A dark one, gonna roast so much coffee.
I dream of some day that I would,
Be sailing around the world.
On Netflix / YouTube I watch,
Marvels movies and tv-series, tutorials, White collar.
If I could change the world I would,
Make it illegal to mass produce meat, and to have a scooter
Everybody should own a,
A umbrella if they live in Denmark. Or a beecrip so they can produce honey and help the earth bloom.
The hobby I have, no one knows about is,
Dunno, but lately I’ve been enjoying playing Pokémon go, been fun now that I’ve been unable to do much activity.
I will never get rid of,
The piece of Burnside concrete that I got from Joey.
I would love to be in a movie with,
Scarlett Johansson, Abigail spencer, Leonardo, Lars Bom.
Any regrets in life so far?
No because that’s what makes you, your choices.
