What are you up to in Atlanta? Out there with the Nike team?
Yeah we’re out here filming for the Chronicles 3 video that comes out next year.
Hows everything going with Chronicles 3? Still have a lot of footage to get?
It’s going really good, man. I have a few things, I mean still working on it of course cause we have like 8 months left.
You’re going to be in the new Run N Gun on the Berrics. How gnarly was it putting together a minute long line in that place?
Yeah, I’m in that. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever filmed for. Just trying a line for hours and hours and it starts getting to your head, so you start thinking about it too much and your body starts cramping up. [Laughs] But other then that it was good.
What else are you working on?
Well other than Chronicles 3, I think I’m going to be working on a Skate Mental video part and a Berrics video part. All at the same time, so yeah, we’ll see how everything works out. [Laughs]
How did you get into skating living in Virgina Beach? Is there a pretty large skate scene there?
Well I moved to this neighborhood and I met my homie Bobby. He was skating in his driveway and I just picked it up from there. The skate scene was pretty big but nothing like how it is now.
Whats the deal with your Skate Mental graphics? Do you work with Brad on those or does he come up with all the ideas?
[Laughs] Yeah, Brad and I work on them together. Usually I give him ideas and he mocks it up, and sometimes he comes up with ideas and he sends them to me. If there’s anything I want to change he changes it, but yeah we work together on it.
How did it feel to finish second out of the other newcomers in the Pro Open and get into Street League?
It felt amazing, man. I had no clue that I was going to get second. It felt really good because all those guys are amazing skateboarders, and I was definitely not expecting to do good at all.
What were some challenges you faced in your first year of SLS?
Well, to try and not get nervous, and that’s about it. Really I get way to nervous. [Laughs]
How did you deal with the contest pressure and nerves from the crowd?
Well, I kinda didn’t. I was nervous the whole time. Especially when they call your name, but I just tried to deal with it as best as I could.
How do you plan to do better next year?
I can only hope to do good, but I’m going to try my best.
What’s your approach to the contest? Do you have a specific strategy?
Not really, I kind of just go with the flow and hope for the best.
Which Section of the contest (Flow, Control, Impact) caters most to your skating?
It always depends on the course because the course changes every stop, but I like the Flow Section a lot.
What’s your relationship been like with the rest of the Pros? Do you get pretty competitive?
My relationship with the other guys is awesome. I don’t really get competitive because I don’t expect to do good anyway, so yeah. [Laughs]
What’s your favorite Street League moment so far?
Just being a part of it is awesome. I’m stoked I got in it.
Any closing words?
Thank you everyone that has supported me in the past and now. Thank you very much for the opportunities.
