My body is great aswell, I have been pretty lucky and haven’t had to many injuries
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this?
I started skating because of some of my friends skated and I had a board at home I got for christmas from my dad. And because my dad skated aswell he have always helped me out with anything skate related.
Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)?
Definitly, because I have a lot of fun when I skate and that’s what its all about
Any person’s that influences you at the moment?
A lot of people influence me! Pretty much any other skater I see do something cool gets me inspired to learn it aswell, but some skaters that really inspires me a lot is Daniel Vargas, Grant Taylor and Bjarne Tjøtta.
What gets you motivated ? Just watching other people skate, but mostly the fun of it
Please comment your feelings, memories (if you are that old) & know how about Skateboarding in the
I don’t know to much about skating in the 80’s except Tony Alva and the other dogtown boys, they’re dope.
90’s were sick aswell, my favourites are Jeff Grosso and Cristian Hosoi, I think they were 90’s skaters haha. I also love some of the old school tricks such as fastplants and inverts.
For some reason I almost dont know anything about the skating in 2000’s haha, but I really like Mike V and Andy Roy, Andy is one of my favourites.
2010+ is really sick. I love all the sick styles and trends that come and go and it is in my opinion better skating than ever at the moment.
Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?
Yes, of course, as long as people don’t start taking it to serious.
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics?
I think it will work out all right as long as people don’t start taking it to serious, and start to skate because they want to be an olympic athlete, cause that will kind iff destroy the fun off it.
