Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the olympics?
I don’t mind skateboarding getting bigger. It’s not gonna change anything for me. And I think it’s great to watch skateboarders compete in a higher level. Not being stoned, drunk or just fooling around. Everything doesn’t need to bee so serious I get that point of view. And there will still be room for that, this i’m sure of. The olympics will not change skating as much as people think. It’s time to share Skateboarding with people. No need to keep it underground and cool. Some people need to stop bitching about stuff. What’s cool and what’s not cool. And just go skate. Yolo
I would like to see more of, Roberts Osis and Mads Sand – Their latest DC klip was bangin! Remember that?
That one time where I was in jail because, I was looking too good, wearing a thong.
I should do more of, Skating and good stuff for others. Wear less thongs

I dream of, A family and a great home.
The book I currently read is, Sales books, Sales Psychology and basic sales. I rarely read books for fun.
The best travel I have been on, When I was in the Navy. Greenland, Faeroe islands, Iceland
The worst travel(s) I have been on was, Berlin in january, cold as fuck.
On Netflix I watch, I do not own a netflix account.
If I could change the world I would, Just try to make it better. Share my comedy show about G-Strings.
Everybody should own a, Christiania Bike and a garden.
The hobby I have, no one knows about is, Collecting knives and talking about playing G-strings.
I will never get rid of, My basketball card collection and knives, My beloved b&w speakers preowned by my father.
I would love to be in a movie with, 50cent or Justin Timberlake
