How many years have you been skating now?
What gets you psyched most about skating?
The homies, the missions and just having heaps of fun.
What sort of spots are you skating mostly at the moment?
Pole jams and rails you got to pop out of.
Which local skateboarder inspires you to up your game and why?
Pieter Retief, he just charges anything. Also Juan Smit, the man has got too many bags of tricks.
Who are some of your favorite international skaters?
Louie Barletta, Leo Romero, James Brockman, Heath Kirchart, Justin Brock, Jake Duncombe and Grant Taylor.
You done any skate trips this year or planning any for 2011?
There is word of another Via the Backroads next year.
What do you do when you’re not skating?
Hangin’ with me mates, exploring the streets of Cape Town at night and day and camping missions.
Any videos or music you’re really into at the moment?
I have been listening to the Black Keys and Black Angels a lot. Videos I’d have to say the $lave video and Stay Gold, too good.
