How are you doing at the moment?
I am great, wish I had more time, but otherwise it is great.
How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so)?
Body is good considering I am 43 and work in an office.
When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this?
I used to windsurf but I always wanted to skate. I finally got my shit together and started when I moved to Lund. A lot of cool guys like Benhög og Handell helped me get started.
Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)?
Yup. Skateboarding rules.
Anything that influences you at the moment?
I saw a 53 year old dude on Vimeo ripping on skateboard, snowboard and downhill mountain bike. That was cool. Kelly Slater is still ripping in the surf. I love watching the surf comps.

Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?
Hell yeah, kids are ripping and there is so many parks. Still good vibes.
Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics?
I do not really watch the Olympics, but if it brings more parks to the sport, it is all good. You do not have to watch it.
