You had to play some pretty heavy pros in the battle at the berrics.
how was that experience? Were you more psyched or nervous about that
whole thing?
At first I was definatly nervous. Then a good friend told me that it’s
just another game of skate and that helped me not be so nervous.

You just got back from AZ. What was going on out there? Who were you
out there with?
I went out there with Marius Syvanen, Tyler Surrey, and Jamie Palmore.
Fick met us there a few days after. Wes Kremer was out there with the
DC guys as well. Marius had a few homies that lived in Phoenix that
was having a video premiere. The video is called the mustard
connection. You should check it out, its bangin. That was probably the
funnest trip i’ve been on because it was just a homie trip, no
pressure, just chillin. skated Tempe park everyday.

How did you first get hooked up with city?
My homie Nick threw together some footage and gave it up to hubba. The
dudes at street corner called back a few days later and asked if I had
a board sponsor, and I told them i was getting zoo rep flow. They told
me they would hook me up with city, venture, and hubba. and ever
since, I’ve been riding with city.
