What did you think of this years Top Shop at the 3rd Lair skate park in Golden Valley, MN?
It was super fun. Lots of rad people and plenty of rad skating.

What shop did you ride for?
I ride for Precision Skates. They been going strong for 19 years.

What is your impression of Minnesota and our skateboard scene?
It's rad. I was stoked, most people seemed like they just wanted to have fun and skate.

What was the highlight of the weekend for you?
All of saturday night.

Favorite rock group?
It changes daily but right now it's Judas Priest.

Did you think I was out of hand at the Lair? I upset a few people. I think it was the fact that I showed my ass in the park that upset some people. That and pooring some of my 40 on my board. It probably didn't help that I was trying to pick up chicks by telling them how small my balls were either.
No it's doesn't seem wrong. You got me so pumped to skate that night. That's what skating is about chaos and having fun.

Any plans on coming back to MN to skate?
Hell yeah, I'll be back in June for the damn am. You have been warned.

The one and only.
