Best travel advice I can give is,
SMILE when you wake up. Don’t make plan for your day, get lost, find new spots and talk with different people, they have nice histories to tell. Don’t forget to respect the others culture and don’t be a turista, be local everywhere you go.
Best life advise I can give is,
Feel free to do whatever you want to do, no one can tell you what you need to do.
Best travel memory you want to share?

My fitness program is,
Run, push hard to get speed, jump the stairs, don’t land the trick, do it again.
When I get old I want to,
Have a backyard with a pool, my kid and my friends skating on it, and my girl taking sun and drinking caipirinhas.
I would NEVER,
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the olympics ?
Skateboard in the Olympics, doesn’t matter for me as a skater, Nyjah or some other kids it’s gonna win gold medal. But looking as a Professor, it’s gonna help in my project in Brazil with the kids, so it’s gonna be good because I have that as a excuse to make a new skatepark (skate school) in my city, and now the government can’t tell anything, It’s a olympic sport and they need to invest money on it.
I would like to see more of,
Real skateboard!!! Stop posting all your shit hard tricks all the time. HAVE FUN with your friends.
That one time where I was in jail because of,
I went to jail for two hours in Tallin – Estonia, because of baking in the hotel room. The boss of the police let us free after make us sign a paper saying, “sorry, I smoke weed”. Next day he was watching us at Simple Session with his kids.
I should do more of,
I should fight more for my Italian passport so I can live in DK and not leave after 3 months every time.
My future looks like,
A happy man with a project in Brazil for the kids, my Italian passport, my backyard pool, and some money to live and not to survive.
I dream of,
Getting a new skatepark in the city where I come from!
