Please comment on Skateboarding in the
All fun. I startet skating in the late 80s, so this is my fundamentals.
A shitty period except for a few highlights in the early 90s. Boring skating but eventually it gave us a lot of new tricks and styles.
The new era. Its like skating resurrected with new energy some how
Whats not to like. You can do whatever you like from boneless to laserflip. Anything goes.
When I chill, I chill with,

To go to trick is,
Cool. I don’t have much patience though. So if I don’t feel any progress after 5-10 tries. I lose patience.
To go to trick when you are farked is,
Farked. I quit to easily if things get to sketchy.
To go to trick when you are winning is,
Best travel memory you want to share?
Team Everslick decided to go on a short roadtrip in jylland to check out the bowls at Friland and Lemvig. Somehow the planned sesh in Friland evolved to the biggest old boys sesh I ever seen. Lots of old friends and heroes from the scene during the 80s and 90s throwing down the hammer. And to top things of everybody went for at beerbash at the place formerly known for country club. Very nice.
When I do not skateboard I,
Work and take care of familybusiness. We just got a babygirl a few months ago, so pretty preoccupied with familystuff at the moment.
My fitness program is,
I have got at Master of Science in Sport Science…Im beyond programs, dude.
When I get old I want to,
Skate with my kids and their kids.
That one time where I was in jail because of,
Had to bail out my brother from a different mother, Rene, after he fucked up three cops down town Herning….kidding never been to jail.
I should do more of,
Skating, but family takes up time at the moment
My future looks like,
Gonna convince more copenhageners to come join us in the wild west.
The book I currently read is,
“København midt i en jazztid” A historic view on Copenhagen during the period between the to big wars.
The best travel I have been on,
Went to California in 1998 with Claus Juul and another homeboy from Horsens. Got to se a lot of skatespots and check out the pros. And as an extra bonus I met Thomas Kring for the first time. Chet Thomas hooked us up with Rune Glifberg. We went to his house, were Thomas was residing, and we joined them for a sesh at Birdland. I was in a between-vertskating-period, so I didn’t bring my balls and wasn’t able to join in. But a lot of gnarly skating went down.
On Netflix I watch,
I live in Jylland. We don’t have Netflix.
If I could change the world I would,
Wipe out poverty and lobbyism
I would love to be in a movie with,
Scarlet Johansen and Nicole Kidman. Yes please…or wait what kind of movie?
I currently follow (social media, instagram twitter, Facebook)
Life advise so far ?
You gotta hang on to the dream. You Gotta hold your head high. You gotta hang on to the dream, and never let it die.
Come visit us in the Esbjerg AREA . Lots of nice bowl.s Concrete and woody.
