How are you doing at the moment?
Pretty good. Skate a lot of vert on the spoonmountain vert!
How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so so)?
I can skate, that makes me happy. But my left hand and my knees hurts a lot.. I broke my hand pretty bad 3 months ago. But I am back on 85 % now 🙂
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this?
It was about 1988. I saw nicky G in my tv. He did an invert. And I was stoked!! I said to my self that I had to learn that! Then my mom told me about a place called Fabrikken. They had a vertramp, a miniramp and some flyouts. It was amazing out there! There where so many good skaters! Finn Dynesen and Dan was the kings of the vert. They treated me very good, and learned me to skate the vert. I am so thankfull for the kindness, that they showed me and the other kids.
Please comment your feelings about Skateboarding in the
80s Vert was so rad back then!
90s Everybody(almost) in Århus stopped skating in 92. Fabrikken Closed. Me and my friends stopped to.
2000 It was my best years! I was just moved to Copenhagen and there where so many good skaters!! I skated a lot of vert in Fælledparken and in Bryggeriet in Malmø.
2010+ Skating is getting insane! All the kids fucking rip! And I love it! I love to skate with yongsters, they have so good energy!
Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?
Yes! It is getting bigger and more insane. And vert is coming back!
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics?
I think its good for skating- I think we will get more parks and ramps.
Where do you stand in terms of politics?
Im not really much into politics.

My family is number 1 to chill with. I also chill a lot with Dannie Carlsen, Jacob Sylvester Hansen, The Domus crew, and the Spoonmountain crew.

Vert attack with the spoonmountain crew. It was awesome! My first contest for 8 years..
Dream session would be,
With Bob Burnquist, Tony hawk, Bucky Lasek. I actually skated 2 hours with Bucky in Malmø before the Vert attack. A dream came true, haha
Lately I have been working on,
Trying to get my varials back on the vert.
