Lodge Guest, Kim Møller aka Mister www.skateboard.dk !!
Name: Kim Møller
Current: Job / school: Criminologist at Aalborg University
Where are you from? Copenhagen, but grew up in Allerød half an hour north.
Where do you currently live? Nørrebro, close to Fælledparken
What nationaly do you feel the most? Finnish is suppose. I do not like to talk too much and I hate it when I have to sit next to people on the bus. That and the knives.
Family status: Mom lives out on Amager
Age: 42 summers
Sponsors: Was never an issue. I realized early that I was not very good. Even in Allerød plenty of people were better than I was. They all quit so I am better now.
Years of skateboarding: 30+
Board size: 8.5+
Wheel size: 54+
Trucks: ‘59s I think
I change set up every once in a while when I can be bothered

How are you doing at the moment? Confident. Confident that I will make the deadline of sending this interview to Kring before tomorrow morning so I can keep my promise and be allowed to join the Shredders Lodge new years session.
How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so)? Overall very good but you know how it is. Some days you feel like you are in some early stage of rigor mortis where everything is stiff and slow.
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this? I friend of mine in school somehow had a legit ‘70s board in his garage that we would cruise around on. I got to go to Florida in the mid-80s and they showed Back to the Future on the plane and knew I had to get a board. As luck would have it there was a skateshop across from the motel we were staying at and I got a Vision complete.
Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)? Good question. Maybe I would be more well adjusted socially today if I had played some team sport instead of only hanging at the skatepark with the derelicts.
Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way? Very much so. I would never have dreamed that we would see all these amazing concrete parks.
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics? Too old to care. Hopefully it will bring even more parks with it.
Where do you stand in terms of politics? The Big Satan.
When I chill, I chill with, no one and neither should you. Chilling is killing the sport!
I’m have been on a mission lately with Ronnie and Simon to skate a parking garage, true story.
Dream session would be, in an even bigger parking garage.
Lately I have been working, on this article I am trying to write
When I was little I would like to ride my bike all the time. I wanted to be a mail carrier because they rode their bikes all day. They had the system beat.
When I’m home I like to, drink coffee, listen to black metal and work on this article that I am trying to write
I normally call my homies for, directions
Your homies are, old but not quite as old as me
I enjoy going to the bar
Wine: not really
Breakfast: bacon and eggs
Late-night snack: Guiness
When was the last time you really won big time? Found 200 kroner on the ground in Tivoli this summer.
When was the time you really lost big time? Forgot 500 kroner at the ATM shortly after.
When I travel, I always bring, too few socks.
Best travel advice I can give is, do not assume you will remember to buy clean socks in time, bring them from home.
Best life advice I can give is, to leave that cocaine be
Are you good with money (do you plan, safe it, cash in or blow it)? I hate buying stuff so that helps.
My fitness program is, to jog around the lakes
Anything that concerns you at the moment? That I am not skating the new X-Hall right now
When I get old I want to, surf, introduce switch to big wave surfing, give speeches about introducing switch to surfing.
I would NEVER, forget to mention that bmx’ers can only turn one way
I would like to see more of bmx’ers admit that an alleyoop is not the same as turning another way
That one time where I was in jail because of, misunderstandings
I should do of more writing
My future looks like trying to write more articles
I dream of some day that I would be a writer
On Netflix / YouTube / Internet I watch, for cues about the zombie apocalypse
If I could change the world I would, have done it a long time ago
Everybody should own a, product that is made in Finland, preferably a knife.
I would love to be in a movie with, a mountain of dead zombies
