How are you doing at the moment?

I’m doing great. Skating about 3 days per week. About to hit the road to host Bowlriders in France for Red Bull. X Games qualifying in Idaho then Copenhagen pro with Rune Glifburg for a few weeks. Maybe head to NYC after that for summer.

How is your body at the moment, (injuries, knees, back, and so)? Lower back sore.

When did you start to skate and why? 14 years old. Because I hated waiting for surf & relying on other people in team sports.

What tricked you into this? Nothing. It’s the coolest thing I still ever have seen.

Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)? Yes. Iv’e met lifelong friends while traveling the world multiple times. You can’t ask for more than that.

Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?

I feel everything happens for a reason & you make what you want out of it. Of course it was great when you didn’t have media in your face and you could do whatever you want. But skateboarding is becoming a sport. With that comes sponsorship, money and more responsibilities.

Where do you stand & please comment with skateboarding in the Olympics? This question is extremely common for me being from Australia. I feel 2 ways. I think it will bring understanding & educate the Australian mainstream population which will then bring more funding and more skate facilities. I also understand that a period of skateboarding that I know has gone forever.

Who do you hang out with at the with at the moment? Arto Sarri, The dingo (Snowboarder and room mate) and other friends mostly outside skateboarding in hospitality industry.

Have you been on any great mission’s lately ? I’m driving to Mammoth now to get a few runs in on the snow and at the skatepark! Explain the Dream session – Europe. Anywhere. Sun. Skating. beer, Swimming. Riding bikes and friends.

Have you been working on projects lately, DIY or other funny stuff ? 2 new TV shows in the pipeline. I’m working on a pro wheel for Alta so maybe I can get a few tricks for that.

What do you do when you home ?  I like to watch series on Apple TV and do washing. It’s the simple things after 20 years on the road.

What kind of music to you listen to ? Bob Segar, Nine inch nails. Big L, Pixes.

What do you with your homies ?  I call my homies for food and wine. Your homies are the shit! I enjoy going to fancy food spots.
