Best show you’ve seen at The Observatory in 2017?
Fuck that's a hard ass question, shit prolly Travis Scott a few months ago. Shout out Kwalks for taking me, that shit was too fun.
Best part about being a Cherry local?
There's a Rite Aid and a liquor store hella close, ha.
Worst part about being a Cherry local?
Shit getting stuck there, and there's no transition. Some days I don't feel like popping onto the ledge, I just wanna skate a quarter pipe or something.
What do you miss most about living in Florida?
Frontside Heel over the rail for the new AD. Photo by Gabe Morford.
The Fam, and all my homies there. It's cool though, I usually visit like twice a year.
Have you ever seen an Alligator in the wild?
Yuppp! They be in the canals ‘n shit all in the neighborhoods. Some people have em in their backyards ‘n shit.
What size & style trucks do you skate?
149's Titaniums, I skate ‘em raw though! I don't like any colors on my trucks.
Do you ride em loose, tight or in the middle?
In the middle fasho I can't fuck with tight trucks, but I can't skate em too loose.
How long do you usually skate a set for?
Like 4-6 months.
Pink or Yellow?
Shit, depends on my mood. At this very second, I would say yellow. But shit in four days I might say pink.
