Below you can read his 10qs interview.
We all got into skating because of somebody-who got you into it?
It was a friend Moncef from my neighborhood in Morocco, his brother bring a semi-professional skate then he give it to him,so we started learn how to push.
What’s your first set and trick?
After that, my homie bought a new skate and gives me the other one, it was my first set-up, a semi-professional board without griptape, and a cartoon logo.
Your first ad and/or hookup (brand or shop)?
My first sponsor was a local skate and surf shop in South Morocco, then I got into the first Moroccan brand Atlas Skateboards that helped me a lot!
What’s your Personal highlight in skating up to this point?
Andrew Reynolds is and will always be the boss, he did a lot for skateboarding and I admire that.
What’s your favorite spot (city, country, diy) to shred and why?
For me the White Spot is the best spot ever cause I learned everything there and I skated there my hole life before move to Europe. The Paradise spot is sick as well you find everything on that garden!
A spot you wish you could of skated but never did?
Everyday I see new spots on videos and that make me wanna skate them all haha, but I really want go to US one day, skate all the famous spots there ! I wanted to skate the Love park but it’s too late..
Who in your crew deserves some shine ad why?
El Mehdi Anys for sure ! We were used to film each others before, and we skated together a lot he learned me most of the tricks I do.
If your not skating-what else do you like to do?
Hang out with the crew, chill and travel.
What’s your plans for the next 12 months?
I moved to Perpignan to do my studies here, but it’s more for skateboarding cause for Moroccans it’s too hard to travel cause of the visa and stuff .. So I’ll stay here and see what will happen, try to skate and travel as much that I can, go to barcy ( it’s 2 hours from where I live ), do some contest, film videos ……
Anything you want to say to the upcomers or any shout-outs?
