What would you change in Skateboarding if you had the chance?
-The general idea that skateboarding is a crime and discrimination inside and towards the skateboarding community.
-Increase the opportunities to create a career on skateboarding outside first world countries.
Favourite music to skate too?
I change my music pretty often, I’ve been listening a lot of latinamerican music lately, like las ligas menores, el mato un policia motorizado, Los mundos. But here’s a playlist of things that got my attention this year:
In your opinion, what is the role of a team rider?
To represent, by giving a voice and a face to a given brand. But also testing products and sending it!
What does being a professional skater mean to you?
It means to be aware and conscious of the skateboarding as a sport, business and as a career. Being a professional skater it’s way more than having a pro model, there are many skaters that have pro models but many are light years away from being professional. It means discipline, integrity, and responsibility. If you happen to be in this position, never take it for granted.
The best piece of advice/wisdom for new riders?
Jake Phelps was many things but one time he said something that I think is really valuable for any skater: “If you are not having fun, you are wasting your time. These are the memories you’ll make for the rest of your life, whatever you do with it that’s your business, but right now, having fun with your friends it’s what makes you the person you are”
