1. ALARM CLOCK
This Chocolate clock is the thing that gets me up every morning and starts my day off. This clock is responsible for getting me to skate spots on time and is the reason I make all my flights, so it’s one of my most important possessions for sure.
This is my original VHS copy of Mouse, which was one of the first videos I ever owned. I didn’t even know that Girl was a skateboard company at the time, I just bought it because it was a skateboard video and I wanted to see what was on it. As you can see, this video has definitely clocked up a lot of screen time and continues to have a big influence on my skating to this day.
Say hello to my little friend right here! I got this guy on the first Miami trip I ever went on. I rolled out there on an Axion Footwear trip with Kareem Campbell, Kevin Taylor, Joey Pepper, and all those dudes, and this is just a really good memory. I just realize all of the things that I have been through and that I am lucky to be where I am.
This is a TransWorld SKATEboarding magazine. I have a collection of them that I look at every day, and this just happens to be the one I checked out today. It has Appleyard on the cover, so you know it’s tight! It keeps me motivated when I check out magazines and keeps me in the know of what’s going on in the skateboard world.
5. PRO BOARD
This is my favorite Chocolate board at the moment. My team manager, Sam Smyth, came up with the idea for this graphic. He noticed I was drinking a lot of Cactus Cooler on tour and he came up with this Calloway Cooler graphic. Good looks, Sam!
6. KENNAN WALLET
This is a wallet that Chocolate made with a graphic of Keenan Milton on it. I definitely remember one of the first times that I went to Chocolate and picked out my own package and I scooped up two of these wallets. I have this hanging up in my room, and when I look at it I think of all the things that Keenan did and how cool he was. Keenan is one of my favorite skaters and someone who I look up to a lot, so this wallet is without a doubt one of my most prized possessions.
7. PHOTO ALBUM
This is my photo album. I like to keep photos in an album so I can look back and think of all the different times in my life and reminisce. The photo is from my first-ever trip to Australia. It was one of the first trips I ever went on with Chocolate—all those trips really mean a lot to me.
8. GRANDMA’S RECIPE
Last but not least, my grandma’s banana split cake recipe, which is the best thing that you can taste on this earth! She makes it for me every Christmas, which is a gift in itself, and every time I look at that recipe hanging up in my kitchen I think of Grandma and how much I love her. One of these days I’m going to make it for her. This recipe reminds me of where I came from and to appreciate where I’m at today. Thanks, Grandma!
