What's your favorite video part?
I have a lot of favorite video parts. Lem Villemin’s part in the adidas Diagonal video used to be my favourite. And PJ Ladd´s Wonderful Horrible Life. Recently I’ve been watching the Bobby De Keyzers Riddles in Mathematics part a lot and Tyson Peterson’s Next New Wave part.
Who was your favorite skater as a kid? Who is it these days?
In the past, definitely Lem Villemin and Felipe Gustavo. Today it’s Marc Suciu, Jamie Foy, Ishod Wair, Gustav Tønnesen and Alexis Ramirez.
What's your favorite city to skate in?
What are your favourite skate spots?
L.A. Courthouse, even though it’s almost a skatepark. This spot has everything, perfect ledges, flatrails manny pads, slappy curbs and enough shade to hang out.
Streets vs. skate park?
Best skateboard magazine?
In the old days, my favorite skatemag was definitely Thrasher Magazine. Today I can’t decide anymore. There are so many good ones like Pocket Magazine, Place Magazine, Solo Magazine and Free Skateboard Magazine.
Who's your favorite teammate?
If I had to choose, then my roommate Sascha or Matty.
hardest trick for you?
Trick you can't do anymore?
Fakie Invert Heelflip – it used to be my signature trick.
What are you up to besides skating?
I study and lately I‘ve been taking a lot of analogue photos. But I also draw sometimes when I have the time or animate skate videos.
What would you be doing these days if you’d never stepped on a skateboard?
No idea. I did judo for 9 years before I started skating. Maybe I would have just continued with it.
