How did you come to be the owner of lost soul skateboards?
Dan Scott almost sold it to some stranger.. boy did I fuck up!

The music you listen to in the car on the way to spots is basically static, feedback, mechanical noises, and some screaming.. why do you listen to this?

Noise music is way more interesting than regular tunes.. much more anger in it. It isn't just the song, there can be a certain yell I love, or a bad drum beat. It puts me at ease or in a rage.

You hardly sleep, you skate with 20 pounds of shit in your pockets, you don't bring water on skate sessions, your trucks have been broken for 2 years, you switch out 3 of your wheels and leave 1 old one.. do you think you're a masochist?

The definition of masochist...someone who enjoys pain.

Let's break this down. I hardly sleep because of working at odd hours at one job, part time at a skateshop, being in two bands, owning a skate company, skating and having a family consisting of a wife and two dogs. I fucking need a TV show!

20 pounds of shit... my wallet is a gross thing, and my cat charms are always in my left pocket.

No water at the sesh... I like to suffer for that trick. If i make the trick, I deserve a drink.
