What hypes you up to skate and come up with new tricks?

Style and Grace

 

Anything in skateboarding that you are like WTF is that for real?

Oh There’s def a lot of Bullshit out there that’s fo sho… A lot of corporate people are takin over companies and skateboarding… All the core companies are slowly fading away while some do remain and continue to keep it real and represent skateboarding in the right way but there’s a lot of skaters gettin fucked over for shit that they cant even control like there so expendable it seems like there’s hardly anymore loyalty between companies and people nowadays… Too many two faced people in the game skaters need to take skateboarding back.

Believe in everything you do… You gotta stay positive even when things can get you down and stay humble.
