Favorite spot to skate: My favorite spot to skate is south bank. Long live sb!
Favorite country: My favorite country to skate that I have been to is Spain. There are so many hidden spots that are amazing all over Spain. I want to travel as much as possible and have the chance to skate new and differents street spots.
First board: I think the first board I got was a birdhouse Andrew Reynolds grim ripper board. I don't remember what trucks or wheels I had.
What motivates me to skate: What motivates me to skate is going out and having fun with your mates. Seeing new tricks or just mucking around have fun, even just warming up at a spot with your mates is a laugh haha...
Warm ups: I try to get some stretch in before a skate. Just get the blood flowing. I normally forget to warm down after would haha...
Side tracks: Due to injury and largely boredom over the last year I have been learning the trumpet, which seems to sidetrack me a lot sometimes.
Music: I like to listen to most styles and types of music. From heavy stuff too really cheesy stuff (haha) and everything in between. I listen to a lot of golden oldies music at the minute.
Videos/movies: A new video I have seen this year is Cold War by Zero. But my favorite one is still Alien Workshop by Mind Field.
Best style: That's an hard one to pick man! I guess it's between Heath Kirchart and Dennis Busenitz. They both go so fast, it is sick!
Random information: I have a good friend haha and life time pet bert the talking African gray parrot
Favorite Volcom jeans/pants: Chino pants! So good for skating in.
One thing you can't leave home without: My headphones. There is nothing worse then been stuck on a plane with crying babys or snoring people haha...
