7. What's your favorite skate spot? There’s this really fun park here in NV near the border of Cali, by Lake Tahoe in a little town called Gardnerville. The park is concrete and it’s got everything. Huge hip, nice big bowl, like a 7stair with a hubba, low ledges, high ledges, bump to ledge, and even a few long manual spots. Big park with plenty of room to cruise without worrying about running into anyone either… Went there on a Roots trip in 2002 I think.

10. If you could go anywhere , where would you go and who would you bring? I’d go anywhere outside the U.S.!
