We all got into skating because of somebody-who got you into it?
One friend gave me his old board and we were only cruising. We had a friend from Austria who showed us ollie and kick flip- I never saw something like this before. From that moment, I’m still on my board thanks God!
What’s your first set and trick?
My first board was Vision and my trucks were Flexfit like the brand for hats haha but i didn’t have any info for the wheels. My first trick was switch hardflip hahaha no I’m just joking, I’m not so sure- maybe Ollie or Shove-it.
Your first ad and/or hookup (brand or shop)?
There was a good guy who helped us with some board shoes just like that- without wanting anything in return. After that the local shop started helping me a bit and after that I started skating for the best shop in Bulgaria in these days. But now everything is different and my Family has always been with me in everything!
What’s your Personal highlight in skating up to this point?
I’m happy and so grateful to be part of the Nomad Skateboards team and Supra Footwear just started sending over few pairs of shoes- that’s it for now, but you never know what future will bring!
What’s your favorite spot (city, country, diy) to shred and why?
Barcelona!!! Barcy is just perfect for me, spots on every corner, a lot of good riders, the level of skateboarding there is huge and the weather is amazing, now in Bulgaria is -20 degrees C, there’s snow everywhere, so I really wish I live in Barcelona one day!
A spot you wish you could of skated but never did?
This year I saw at the Bulgarian skate video ” Amnesia Forever” a perfect spot in Hague Netherlands, just perfect line with ledges and some gaps yeahhhh I must visit it soon!
Who in your crew deserves some shine and why?
I have three young homies Lazar Georgiev, Viktor Jordanov and Iliya Beltukov- crazy style, crazy tricks, you had better believe that! I think those three need more shine.
If you’re not skating-what else do you like to do?
Just to be with my beautiful girlfriend is enough for me! Also, working out, reading the Bible and cooking make a perfect day!
What’s your plans for the next 12 months?
I really don’t know, just wish for more skate trips and more amazing surprises, I believe this year will be different- amazing things will happen, I wish more LOVE for everybody 🤙🤙
Anything you want to say to the upcomers or any shout-outs?
I want to give thanks to God on first place, the last year was hard, had some injuries, some problems- without God I don’t know what I’m going to do! And just want to thank you guys for this interview. Big ups for my sponsors who always keep me so fresh- you are the best, it’s such an amazing gift to call your sponsors your Family and to be true, not only empty words.
Stinky Socks, Nomad Skateboards, Blok Supply, Supra Footwear, thank you so much for all the things you’ve done and keep doing for me. LOVE and RESPECT!!! And for those who read that- stay blessed, homies, PEACE! – Anton
