Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics?

I don´t really care, but if I get the chance to join, I would.

Where do you stand in terms of politics? Fuck Trump

When I chill, I chill with, My girlfriend.

Lately I have been working on, A video part, but it´s hard to film street with all the snow…

When I’m home I like to, Play video games

I normally call my homies for, Beers or skate, often combined.

When I travel, I always bring, A speaker.
