WHAT’S THE BEST TRIP YOU’VE EVER BEEN ON AND WHY?
An acid trip back in ‘86. I thought I’d figured something out but then, no, it was gone.
FAVORITE VANS RIDER?
Alex Perelson for a $1000.
WHAT TRICK CAN’T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?
I wish I could trick myself into believing that anyone cares what I think. Turn off your computer and go, man. Go.
WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SKATING?
I enjoy smoking, the poetry of my dog, Gus, pontificating on life and love. Recently I put paint to canvas for the first time. Visceral! I'm writing a memoir with a ghost writer; it's a cautionary tale. I shoot photos, blog, do Pilates, yoga, run ten miles a day. I'm currently renovating a ‘64 Chevelle and my ‘49 Panhead FL is cherry. I ride on weekends, weather permitting. I also work with a local youth outreach program – you gotta keep those young minds fertile. My band is working on some "new" material that I think our fans will find off the chain. What else? I'm toying with the idea of starting a new vintage headwear company. I don't know, just something different.
LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?
Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible.
