How long have you been skateboarding and why did you start?
I’ve been skating for like 11 years now and I just started in my friend’s driveway really randomly one day. Skateboarding basically took over from there.
Favourite terrain and why?
Everything! Skateboarding is fun anywhere. Whether it be a slappy curb, a pool, rail, manual pad, mini-ramp, skatepark, ledge, or whatever!

How many times have you been to Malmö?
I’ve been to Malmo 3 times now, and every time gets better and better!
Why do you like coming to Malmö?
I like coming to Malmo because it’s seriously on my top three favorite cities ever! The people are so amazing! The city is awesome! Everytime I come out there I end up staying longer and longer. Not to mention the park is amazing.

Best memory from your times in Malmö
There are way too many! But the last time I went there was a huge festival of some sort, the whole town was just partying! Bands in the middle of the street and such. Malmo is the best.
What makes a good skateboard destination?
A good skateboard destination consists of good stuff to skate (obviously), nice people (to help you find stuff to skate), and preferably good weather. Maybe a solid spot to camp?
Favourite skateboarder and why?
That’s such a hard question! I’ll just go with the dude I’ve been most psyched on lately. Dennis Bussenitz just had that new part come out that was so sick! After watching him skate it just makes you want to go skate. Cardiel does the same thing for sure!
What do you do when you dont skate?
Listen to music, find new bands, play video games, read, watch documentaries, maybe make nachos?
Radest thing you ever seen?
Watching the door of a plane open before I skydived! Watching the homies shred is always awesome too! I know that’s a couple of things but I couldn’t help it.
