Skaters not on Creature?
Vince Devalle.

Skateparks?
Issaquah, Tigard—I’ve had some times at Skate Barn, too.

Worst nicknames you’ve been given?
Those don't really bother me. Josh Perkins calls me Gershwiggler.

Gnarliest rails you've skated?
Issaquah rail kills all!

Top three things about smoking weed?
It's something I’m truly interested in. Since I spend most of my time hurt, watching people skate, I’d lose my mind if it wasn’t for weed. Smoking a spliff and blasting some jams makes me want to skate more than anything else.

Ways to piss off Hammeke?
Prove him wrong. Complain… Hammeke loves to complain about me complaining. Stab him in the face with a sword.

Navarrette quotes?
"Did I say 33? I meant 24." "Kid, let me borrow $300; I’ll pay you back as soon as we get to the airport in the states.” (Two years ago—still owes me $200). "This ain't the Navy. We'll leave somebody behind."

Flip tricks?
Pressure, casper, banana.

Breakfast items?
Breakfast sandwich homemade—nothing else.

Things to have a meltdown over?
A shitty filter that causes me to fuck up twisting. No ketchup with breakfast sandwiches; that means you, "Starbuck’s." Eating shit on basically nothing.

Things being pro will do for your life?
More responsibility, bigger bank account, probably my own video game and TV show.

Daniel Lutheran gaps out to the June '15 cover with a dead-eye over-the-back 50-50 down a 20 set. And there's plenty more Propeller partying inside, including full-length Dan-Lu and Elijah Berle interviews. Hockey homies John Fitzgerald and Donovon Piscopo throw down off the ice. Corey Glick demonstrates his Lunatic flick. Volcom hits the highway en route to Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest. Josh Borden talks about his am-to-pro bump; the Bones Swiss team (well, not all of them) set their sights on the motherland and a full recap of this year's Thrasher/Converse Death Match at SXSW.
Add this one to your collection.
