by Schmitty

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.

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Louie Barletta scrapes some vert and Ben Raemers goes past the plane welcoming you to the December issue. The Oververt madness only escalates with a 26-page Enjoi video feature inside, including a Barletta interview, fun facts, new team-rider introductions and even a drinking game. Chug-a-lug. And that's just the tip of the blade: Bastien Salabanzi interviews Manny Santiago; LRG plunges into Cyprus; Hellride travels across the pond; and the Huf team explores Asia. And if the heavy hits leave you looking for some levity, Garrett Hill discusses his infamous two-tone pants and Beagle tells some tales of the Skate Tank. Done deal, dudes.
Add this one to your collection.
