How are you doing at the moment?
I’m doing pretty descent, just chilling and having a really relaxed everyday and just having fun with my skating again after some pauses where I kind of lost track of the board, but getting back into it slowly again now at long last
How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so)?
I’m still young I shouldn’t complain, but I’m not going to go for the big gaps or stairs no more lets just put it like that, not doing the risky stuff and just trying to not get hurt when I skate, though it isn’t that easy ha-ha
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this?
I started to skate back in 2000, there were some elder dudes at my school doing tricks out in front of the school where there were these stone ledges, and I just got caught up in it from day one there!
Please comment your feelings about Skateboarding in the
80s: I wasn’t there so what can I say except all the dudes were killing it back then when they had almost nothing
90s Weird giant shoes small boards and big clothes
2000 Was all about skating everyday for me
2010+ shit has gotten technical like beyond my imagination, i cant even describe some of the things that are being made on skateboard now adays its just blowing my mind
Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?
The progress there have been from when i skated to now is exceptional, the options are so much more out there for the kids and the availability for skateparks all over now is so much better then from when i was younger.
So in that way i feel like it have been accepted alot more then it was
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics?
In some ways its great to get the skateboarding community acknowledged as a real competitive sport, though there may be some rules causing trouble to some skaters
Where do you stand in terms of politics?
Couldnt give much less care in the world for politics to be honest
