Lice problem all taken care of?
Actually its been gone for a while now, but I have been having my sister or girlfriend go through it just to make sure.
Ams tend to get the brunt of torturous antics on the road. Have you gone through any of these traditional hazings?
Hmm.. yeah there’s been a few good ones. I would rather not talk about them.
Kinked rail or straight down?
Mellow kinks are fine, but I’d rather skate a straight rail.
As the first official rider for Quiet Life clothing, how did you get on the team? Is it true that you had to pester Mueller to put you on?
Me pester Andy? No not at all.. Well I don’t think so.. I want to say I was pretty chill about it and how I got on.. I can’t really remember though. I know my friend Anthony and Feds where talking to Mueller about it for a while and Andy didn’t know if he should do it or not. I didn’t have a clothing sponsor at the time, and I didn’t see myself riding for most clothing companies. I don’t know why but I really liked the clothes and the whole vibe Quiet Life has, so I just pretty much waited till Andy gave me the word that I could actually get on. And I would like to say I’ve been wearing QL stuff right side out ever since. lol.
If you had to skate one shoe for the rest of you life, what would it be?
Picos or Manchesters.
Last time you did something first try?
Everyday. I got ollies on LOCK!
In the past several months you’ve been getting a lot of coverage and stocking up on footage. Do you think filming and shooting photos for a project helps you progress?
I would assume so. Skating and filming things gets you motivated to really try new things or think about tricks you would want to try but thought you could never actually do. So in a way I would say yes.
Multi-car missions or just go skate with a few friends?
More people More laughs More motivation More tricks.
In the parks or out on the streets?
Streets are where it’s at.
The best thing about having Beibel as a teammate?
Everything can’t always be about skateboarding? What else do you do to occupy your time?
Me and my friends just do a bunch of dumb shit only we think is funny.
Does skating for a European board company encourage you to learn French or any other language?
It almost does, but I’d like learn it first hand rather then by a book. That can only teach you so much. But I’ve been really wanting to learn Japanese and German. Don’t ask why.
