What would you change in Skateboarding if you had the chance?
Get rid of the racist and homophobic attitudes in skateboarding. Yeah, even in skateboarding it still exists…
Favorite music to skate too?
I’ve got all kinds of stuff I enjoy listening to, far too much to call out individually. So i’ll just link you guys to one of my playlists on Spotify
In your opinion, what is the role of a team rider?
Well when a company sponsors you it’s because they see something in you. You will be sent gear and travel to new places so make that investment for the company worth it. Help give the company a good image and reach out to other riders and people involved with the company to stay connected.
What does being a professional skater mean to you?
First off, recognizing that you have an amazing opportunity. You need to treat that with respect and take full advantage of that opportunity. Work on perfecting your skill and work on building yourself for the future. Most sponsored skaters only make it 2 or 3 years before they’re either hurt or quit etc… Make it last! Also, the connections and friends you make through skateboarding can be something that stay with you for life – even after skateboarding.
What is your dream setup? It doesn’t even need to exist!
Some kind of hybrid street/DH deck that I personally create (With Landyachtz.. looking at you..) with a good broken-in set of Caliber trucks and some small soft wheels.
