Any random storys you wanna share ? First time I met Jake Phelps, skating Faelledparken and he comes biking in and slams into the grass, gets up and start talking to us about the perfect height for bowlskaters. Then after a while he stops and ask me “are you a dude or a chick?”…..it became weird really fast hahah
