What are your skate superstitions. Like your shoes being untied, tapping something three times to clear your mind, tapping your tail on the ground before you do a trick, etc. I know for me i can't land any trick if my shoes are untied it takes away my competition. I even know that a lot of pro's have these same superstitions like andrew reynolds madness. what superstitions do you do?

Nah, I don't have any of that madness shit...But I do feel like if I don't go through my pre-skate rituals I usually have a bad day; Stretch out properly, smoke a little green, drink a Crackstar, and warm up on flatground and land my bag of go to tricks.

And I wouldn't call what Reynolds does "superstitions"...He actually has OCD that he's learned to live with.

If I'm skating mini ramps I usually run up and down the ramp a few times (note I only do this if I have the park to myself, otherwise you look like a bit of a mental).

I don't really have any superstitions when Im skating just like naturally or casually or whatever. But when it comes to a trick that Im sorta scared of doing yet I know I'm capable of landing it I just try and be like Westgate. Like just try and stay calm and think oh well whats the worst that can happen and then if u eat shit on it like then u can either be like well fuck Im done now or like well thats as bad as its gonna get so I might as well stay with it

Before I do anything I have to land a kick flip. Then I can skate.

Well I normally like to smoke a cigarette before I skate, clears my mind and gets me in the zone.
