Any sponsors ? Nike SB, Rockstar Energy, Bronson, Mob, Vibronic Wheels. Huge thanks to everyone that helps make this shit happen!
Family status ? singleeeeeee…whats up ladies
School, work or both ? It still blows my mind everyday but I’m not enrolled in school or doing work at the moment. Ive been blessed enough to focus all of my time on skateboarding these past two years.
How is a great normal day looking for you ? ( start from morning til late night) Wake, bake, and skate hahaha. Climb my lazy ass out of bed and hit up all the boys to see what the move is for the day. Tons of other homies out here in San Diego so there are always people to skate with! Usually just skate until we are burnt out and then we most likely end up back at my crib playing UFC or watching Its Always Sunny in Philidelphia haha.
Tell us how a good long weekend is looking for you Shit, weekends are about the same. Wake up, burn, hit up the homies and go get some skating in. Maybe get into some trouble at night if the boys are down haha.
How is your fall coming along and how has it been so far ? Always hyped on this time of the year! I spend so much time on the road this year doing contests and other events and I’m finally catching a little break at the moment. Usually this time of the year is a bit more dead for contests and such . Spending a lot of my time filming and getting my body back to full health!
Any projects you got going you wanna talk about ? Ive been working my ass off to put together a full part. Filming tons with my buddy Tylre Wilcox as well as Chris Gregson. Fucked my knee up 2 weeks ago and haven’t been able to film but I\’m nearing the end soon and I can not wait to put out some footy for everyone!
Do you read books ? if so, what do you read ? I haven’t been on top of my reading game lately by any means but I found myself getting into James Patterson’s books for a bit. I dig the super short chapters.
Who are you hanging out with at the moment ? The fucking boyzzzzzz hahaha…the whole gang is out here in So Cal! Been skating a good bit with Alex Sorgente, Cory Juneau, Shea Donovan, Justin Rivera…and if I’m skating vert I’m usually skating with some of the Brazilian homies, Leo Ruiz and Mancha. I also live super close by Elliot Sloans backyard paradise and have been skating there a lot lately.
Tell us about the great crew you are bringing to the session next time… Kinda hard to call it…
Do you plan any fall or winter skatemissions ? Just recently took a quick trip up to mammoth to film some stuff and plan on making my way up north to San Fran soon as possible! gotta get my body healed up.
Who and what is your motivation at the moment ? Honestly probably all the homies that I skate with everyday. It still trips me out to think about it and say but a lot of the guys I skate with daily are some of the best skateboarders in the world. I find myself having to pick my jaw up off of the floor way too often. Everyone is killing it right now!
How do you think your future will look like ? Shit I’m just trying to ride my skateboard haha. I cross my fingers and hope that I continue to have the opportunity to travel and see new places. Definitely one of my favorite parts of skating. This little plank of wood has taken me to places I would have never imagined visiting.
What else is going on ? Not a whole lot really…
What do you do besides skateboarding ? That question gets harder and harder the older I get haha. Everything I used to do as a kid slowly faded out and my life practically revolves around skateboarding 100% of the time. I still try and find some time to goof around on my guitar every now and then. Maybe shoot some photos or something. For the most part its just skating skating skating.
What is your to go to resturants ? Surf Brothers, Frazier Farms, Panda Express, Board and Brew, Teri Cafe, hahaha I like food if you haven’t noticed.
Whats your top 3 favorite meals ? A sub from Frazier farms for sure, Surf brothers teriyaki, and maybe a burger from Chili coast. Those 3 are all running a close race.
Whats your top 3 favorite drinks ? Sweet tea which I miss dearly haha, Dr. Pepper, and iced coffee from starbucks.
How do you see the future of skateboarding ? I only really see it growing. Its becoming more and more mainstream and with the introduction of skateboarding in the 2020 olympics I’m sure that it will continue to draw more and more kids as well as drawing more communities to go about building places for kids to skate.
Do you you have other hobbys besides skateboarding ? Like I said I fool around on the guitar every now and then if I get bored enough haha.
Who do we need to interview on the lodge ? hmmmm…if you haven’t gotten Alex Perelson to fill one out that might be interesting hahaha. I was stoked to see my homie Shea Donavan just recently had an interview with you guys!
Last Question…what you got ? …huh?
Thank you to ? Huge thanks to my friends, family, and sponsors that make every day a dream come true. blessed!
