How are you doing at the moment? 

I’m fine just trying to save money for my trip.

My hand is pretty fucked for good as it broke when I was a soldier in Israel (Everybody has to do that) and that’s why I always skate with that hand thing.

When did you start to skate and why?

What tricked you into this? 
I think I started when I was 12 or so and I remember seeing a dude skating down the street and had to try it. Then I just got kind of hooked you know.

Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)?

Yeah I love it. I couldn’t feel the same about doing something else. Its fun.

It just happens magically

Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way? 

Yeah it sure looks like its keep getting better and harder, seems like the level is slowly rising from year to year.

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

I think that its not really natural for skateboarding to get there, I think that you cant really judge who’s skating better than the other cause its usually just different styles and who’s to say what’s the best…

I got a job in Sweden for two weeks like a month ago and made good money. It was thru Daniel the guy who teaches in the skate class with hinnerk, good guys.

When was the time you really lost big time?

I like to forget those things its better for everyone.
