How old are you? Thirteen.
And where are you from?
Los Gatos, California.
Have you heard about the Y2K thing?
What does that mean to you?
Do you have a curfew at home?
Yeah, probably, but I don’t know what it is.
So you can just go home whenever?
If you get bad grades, will your parents not let you skate?
No. I don’t really get bad grades.
How long do you think it’ll take until you’re good enough to turn pro?
A long time. Hopefully.
Why is that? Do you think you have a long way to go?
It would be cool if I turn pro when I’m older, and it will take a long time if I do.
Do you know who Tony Alva is?
Yeah. He was one of the first skaters back in the 70s.
Who’s been the most influential/important to you since you’ve been skating? Jamie Thomas and Rodney Mullen.
Are you a momma’s boy?
What are you going to do on New Year’s Eve 1999?
No. Probably go to a friend’s house and hang out.
Do your parents ever drive you from spot to spot?
I go to the CASL contests, so I get to go to a lot of skateparks.
