Where do you currently live and where are you from ?

Stockholm atm and I´m originally from Eskilstuna (about 15 swedish miles outside Stockholm)

Tell us a little bit about your past ?

I´ve been skateing since I was a kid, around 12 years old, and today I try my best to find some time to skate in between work at the local skateshop Hollywood.

Why skateboarding ? How did it start for you ?

I guess it was like for most kids staring with a sub culture; I got tired of playing fotball and didn´t feel like practicing the hockey or whatever so I found skatboarding and ever since I have had a solid foot in that culture. The freedom and all that is hard to find anywhere else.

What size set up, wheels & trucks do you currently ride ?

Since I have the privelige of getting my stuff for free from generous sponsors my current setup is Baker 8.25 Reynolds, Thunder 148″ Hollow Lights, , Spitfire F4 52mm and of course Shake Junt grip and bearings (I mean what else?)

Do you have any setup rituals, we need to know about ?

Hmm. I like to have the wheels insanely loose but that is quite common these days right? We call it Pro glapp (translates pro distance kind of)

Any sponsors ?

As mentioned above it is Baker, Shake Junt, Etnies, Hollywood and support from Urskog.

What kind of skateboarding do you prefer ?

Street. Definitely street!

Do you have a skate spot in your home town you can recommend ?

Yes! The Munktel arena in Eskilstuna is sick! Go there!

Who is your favorite skateboarders ?

Reynolds or Templeton so both if I am allowed to pick two

School, work, not working or other occupation ?

I´m working at Hollywood (also mentioned above)

How is a normal day looking for you ? 

I get up quite early and go for a run then some coffee. Once that routine is done I go to work, go for a skate afterwards and hopefully I find the time and energy to meet up for beers with some friends. That is the standard answer right? haha

Tell us how a good long weekend is looking for you

Well I guess you can take the question above and repeat that and maybe minus the work and a chance to sleep in on the sunday.

Any new projects or missions 2018, you wanna talk about ?
I would like to film a retirement part during the year to come. It is hard! Every time we go out to film the lil’ dudes are taging along and we end up at a 75 stairs rail or something! Damn it! haha

What are you planing for this Fall and winter 2018-19 ?

The filming I guess.

Who are you hanging out with at the moment ?

Peter Jeppson, Josef Scott Jatta, Simon Karlsson, Hazze Lindgren, Ricky Sanström, Jonas Sohn, Hampus and Marre, the sour boys. I don´t know everyone that wants to hang out!

 

 

 

Who and what is your motivation at the moment ?

I just want to have fun basically. It is simple.

Last country you visited ? and what happened there ?

Berlin. I took a slam. Broke my ribs in two places and had the time of my life. Copenhagen pro was after that though but the Berlin slam is a better story.

What was the last gnarly thing you witnessed ?

That is for sure Simon Karlsson. And what to pick here? The flip one foot in Tampa? The rails he skated this summer? The kickflip down a million staircase? I dont know. A lot from that dude, keep an eye out for that part dropping!!

What was the last item you bought ?

That would be a beer sir. I´m currently in the line for another one. When will you join me Thomas?

When you cook food, what do you cook ?

Pasta carbonarax

Whats your top 3 favorite drinks ?

How do you see the future of skateboarding ?

Bigger rails, bigger stairs. But personally I would like to take it down a notch, more chill, more fun and yeah, simplier.

Who do we need to interview on the lodge ?

Simon Karlsson. Easy!

Shredderslodge NOTE,  2017 interview with Simon Karlsson  HERE

Do you ever think about a future with no skateboarding ?

No. This is a big part of my life and I am so glad to have it in my life. Would not want a future without it.

Last words, did we miss anything ?

Stay cool bruh and thank you all!
