PREFERRED STYLE OF SKATEBOARDING:
Fast. Dangerous. Stand Up.
WHAT’S YOUR LOCAL ZONE:
Now that I live in LA, Laguna and Malibu are frequented a lot. But I love Santa Barbara and the Bay Area.
BIGGEST PET PEEVE:
Girls who talk too much and too loud.
Got hit by a car on my motorcycle, flew into a light post and snapped my femur. It sucked.
BEST PART OF SKATING:
Traveling and Eating Shit.
Having Kids you’ve never met seeming to know everything about you.
Puerto Rico and Giants Head
ONE THING EVERY SKATER SHOULD KNOW:
Don’t listen to other skaters unless you respect them. Wear a helmet… or don’t. And have some fuckin’ fun.
