How did u get into skateboarding?

My friend jarred and I were jumping on the trampolene at my house back in the day and suddenly we heard this loud noise coming down the street from my house and then we saw a skater skate past with a smile on hiis face and it just looked really cool and full of freedom so I went to my dad (James Morley) the next day he came home from work with one of those old school skateboards, this was the happiest day of my childhood and I havent stopped skateboarding since that day.

 

Who is your favorite skater?

Favorite skater would have to be brandon westgate because of the amount of crazy pop he has its a big choice between him and steez Ortiz

 

Favorite spot to skate?

Has got to be the moses mabhida stadium in Durban south africa its just so smooth and its pretty much a bust now because of security but we take what we can get, its got stairs and smooth ledges as well as sick manny pads

 

 

 

 

Best thing about skateboarding?

The best thing about skateboarding for me would have to be how it clears my mind like if im having troubles at home or if i’m upset about something then I can just go and skate and it all just seems to go away and I believe that skaters see the world in a different view point to what other people see it.

 

What were the best trips you went on, thanks to skateboarding?

My best trip would have to be malloof money cup, many memories were made with all my homies and some great skateboarding went down, also got the opportunity to have a few beers with some legendary professionals such as Jake Brown, Luan de Olivera, Bob Burnquist and Louie Lopez

 

What are your best results?

Best results for me would be placing 1st in the Maloof Money cup street qualifiers this was a great day for me

 

Worst trend in skateboarding?

Worst trend in skateboarding would have to be skinny jeans, they are the worst things ever creates hahaha, they dont alliw your balls to breath and they make you look like a queer, baggy isn’t great either , slim fit is the way.

 

Any good skate stories?

This is a story but theres nothing to great about it, it was the day after Christmas and I decided to go for a session at our local skatepark until I got a bit too stoked and over my head and tried something without thinking which ended me up in hospital I broke my fibia,tibia,ankle, leg as well as cracked my knee cap hahaha it was madness and the food in hospital wasn’t the best either.

 

Whats your go to trick at any spot?

My go to trick at any spot would have to either be inward heelflips or late pop shuvs I love the feeling that these produce.

 

A Perfect day, what would it be?

The perfect day for me would be just skating streets with the homies and getting footage live just chilling with friends and doing what I love it makes me happy.

 

Shout outs hate outs words of wisdom?

Id like to firstly send a shout out to my mom (Shan Morley), dad (James Morley), my sister (Caitlin Morley), my beautiful girlfriend (Amy Casten) as well as her sister (Candice Casten ) as well as all the little kids from the park, Zoo York Benelux and the cloudy brothers , id like to thank each and every one of these special people in my life for being the driving force behind me doing what I love these are the people who inspire me to push harder and never give up on what I love thank you Trueskateboardmag for such a great interview really do appreciate it, I love you all. – Anton
