Location? Long Beach, California
Goofy or Regular? Goofed out!
Years in the game? Born with board.
In your opinion, the most inspirational or culturally important skateboarder is? There is no way i can pick just one, but for me I’d say, Duane Peters, Jeff Phillips, Jay Adams, Mike V, Cardiel, and my best buddy Colin Gayle. They all SHRED HARD//GO FAST and seem to enjoy getting HURT!!! Watching my 2 boys “Turtle” and Ryder learn to skate is by far the most inspiring thing for me these days. Passing the torch of GNAR!!!
Do you ride a surfboard? If/When my shoulders stay in socket long enough!!!
Preferred terrain? Janky // DIY // Ditch type shit that nobody else wants to skate. If it looks un-skate-able, I’m down to give it a shot!!! Pools are RAD and I enjoy goin fast!!!
If you had to choose between life as an Earth Wizard or life as a successful blind pianist, which would you choose and why? EARTH WIZARD ALL DAY!!! Mainly cuz you can shred volcanoes and have insane DIY skills. oh and I would finally have the need to have a ditch//bowl style moat around my lair!!!
What drives you the most when riding a Riviera? I’m really into different shapes of boards//exploring new ways to lurk and Riviera has shapes for days!!! That makes it really fun, getting a different feel every time you get to shred a new shape. It makes you look at skateboarding a whole new way from the last one//try new and different lines//tricks!!!
