Will Gomez | Florida
With so much flavor and style, it’s hard not to get stoked on Will Gomez’s submission. He put it down for the Florida scene and came through with a proper edit. In the end, it’s completely up to you guys who wins this thing! So if you’re feeling Will’s edit, be sure to give him a vote. (You have until Sunday!) Hit the 50/50 page for all the details as we round out our 2016 contest! —TWS
How old are you and how long have you been skating?
I’m 20 years old and I’ve been skating for about 14 years now.
Where are you from and where did you grow up skating?
Born and raised in Miami, Florida. I’ve been skating down here my whole life.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Wake up, make some Cuban coffee, and go to work. Then go skate one of my local parks—either Lot 11 or Westwind Lakes, then come home and watch Netflix.
What was your first reaction when you made it into the final round of the 50/50?
I got so stoked! I’m still stoked! Didn’t even think I’d make it in [laughs]. I’m glad I did though.
Out of the other six Regional Finalists, whose edit are you stoked on the most?
I really fuck with Isaiah Jones.
Would you enter the #TWS5050 again next year?
If I don’t win this year then yea probably [laughs], it’d be a dream come true to win this!
Anyone you want to thank or shout out?
God, mom, my family, friends, sponsors, and everyone else who supports me. Shout out to all my GCP Goons down in Miami!
