How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so)? The usual left foot is a bit fucked from an old injury. At this moment, my wrist is hurting a bit, nothing serious. I would say I am in okay shape
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this? At the age of 10 or something like that. I actually fell in love with it at faelledparken when I saw my brothers skating. I just sat on the board and rode down ramps, I can’t remember the details. But when we got back to my brother’s apartment near faelledparken he hooked me up with a used complete. Yellow Powell board, and Orion trucks I think. But actually, when I was young than 10, my brother would make me test out the ramps that he build in the driveway, he made me drop in on them, actually don’t know why.
Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)? No doubt, all the good times with the homies and tours, wouldn’t trade it for anything

Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics? Yes and no again, some good things about and some bad things about, it don’t worry about it too much to be honest
Where do you stand in terms of politics? I better not answer that, sorry.

When I was little I would like to, switch 360 flip, switch bs tailslide and bs noseblunt.
When I’m home I like to, play tabletennis with Simon Schou or go out for some sushi with GRAFF and whoever is down. I Actually just got a slow juicer, pretty hyped on making juices at the moment.

When was the time you really lost big time? I don’t know, maybe when I got robbed for a first place twice at two different events in Aarhus held by smedx. Mathias Hernandez won both, he came up to me all confused and couldn’t understand what the fuck just happened, he told me I got robbed, so I guess that answers the question pretty good.
When I travel, I always bring, charger, passport, skateboard and money
Best travel advice I can give is, remember to chill out
Best life advice I can give is, money is important, but remember your family and friends.
Are you good with money (do you plan, safe it, cash in or blow it)? Can you ever be to good with money? I would say that I am a never ending paper chaser.
Best travel memory you want to share? All the old Circa trips, too many to choose one but When I landed in Russia, the roads looked a bit like Irak, that was pretty trippy.
When I do not skateboard I, cook, chill, going out for sushi with my girl, watch tv or run on the beach.
My fitness program is, running by the beach (Moesgaard) and some exercises by the water.
Do you care about your health? Yes, I started to care few years ago.
Anything that concerns you at the moment? education, finance and where I’m going to study, Aarhus or Herning
When I get old I want to, chill in a big house at the beach or at least some type of water, with a big garage and a indoor and or outdoor miniramp, and of course have a few dogs.
I would NEVER, buy a micro car.
I would like to see more of, Danish skateboarding, longer pants, less fashion.
That one time where I was in jail because of, nope, I’m a good guy
I should do more of, skateboarding, running, training, studying, eat healthier.
My future looks like, nice and quiet with some of the above.
I dream of some day that I would, be in the real estate marked, as an actual real estate agent or on my own, maybe both.
On Netflix / YouTube / Internet I watch, war documentaries, Klovn, Top gear and deadliest weapon and documentaries.
If I could change the world I would, to many things that need to be done. Instead of spending so much money on war and stuff that we in Denmark don’t have anything to do with, spend it on elderly people or kids. Stuff like that.
Everybody should own a, skateboard, tabletennis, couch, sofa and a bed.
The hobby I have, no one knows about is, Ping pong, just started slowjuicing a lot and car freak.
I will never get rid of, my family.
I would love to be in a movie with,
Mick Øgendahl Alle for tre.
Any regrets in life so far? Started smoking and not listening to my mom when she told me about taking school serious, it backfires at this moment.
I currently follow (social media, instagram twitter, Facebook)
BMW, Mercedes, worldstarhiphop, Rays and so on
Anything else, I’m truly sorry about the delay, sorry Kring
Thanks to Rays, Emporium, Dwindle, Final, Claus Busk, FB, Damgaard and everyone else.
