It’s always Dane, Jackson and me going early and then some people join us later. Louie Lopez has a really good part, he’s really sick.
Skankie (Daan van der Linden), he’s got good shit too.
You’re quite young and have been on the scene for ages, from the outside it seems you’ve been through your Ryan Sheckler phase, in KP 82 you said you’re favorite skater was Salabanzi. Do you feel like a super-kid status was put on you, has that affected you at all?
No, I’m just going to say that when you’re a little kid you grow up skating you think these guys who win contests are sick.
They were always quite mellow about it, they liked it. I’m just stoked and thankful that they always wanted to do everything for me, travel, driving me everywhere.
Yeah I’ve been on Volcom since I was a little kid, I don’t know exactly how long, but it’s been a few years now yeah. I remember this Belgian guy, his name was Hans (Claessens), he was the team manager for Volcom and would come to local park every now and then.
How has it been filming for the video, how long were you aware what you were filming for?
Some people had been filming for it for a while already, then I started going to the States all the time, they said ‘seems like you’re getting some tricks, maybe you should film more stuff for the video’.
But it’s definitely harder to film, you’re not just going to film something little.
For me I felt like I had to do some bigger stuff for some reason, I don’t know why.
