1. Go-to-trick:
I’ll go with a flatground kickflip. Sometimes for me the whole outcome of my entire skate day can be determined by my first kickflip.

2. Warm up spot:
Would say my Volvo, but I sold that. So curb outside house.

3. Best $lave trip memory:
$lave trip karaoke. Danny Dicola nailed it with, “What a Wonderful World” by Louie Armstrong. We actually ended up using his karaoke for the credits song in Radio-Television.

4. Favorite teammate:
The entire $lave and Dekline teams are ripping!

5. Thing to do when not skating:
Maybe go watch South Park, Workaholics, or It’s Always Sunny.

6. TV, movie, or book Character:
Walter White

7. Website (non-skate one):
I can YouTube songs for days!

8. Band all-time:
Too hard to just pick one!

9. Guilty pleasure:
90’s Seattle rock.

10. Fast food order:
Chicken nuggets, sweet & sour sauce.

11. Movie quote:
“I’m a big book publisher who’s not the least bit interested in your stoney memoirs……..you’re a towel.”-South Park- (not a movie, but whatever)

12. Skate photo:
Anything my friend J-hon shoots!

13. Thing about Jared:
Jared likes Subway.

14. Way to spend your money:
Wish I say that I spend it smart and wisely, but unfortunately I spend it fast as a dipshit.

15. Thing to get for free:
I’m grateful to get a thing for free, but I really do love me some fresh new socks.

16. Board graphic:
I’ll go with the simple $LAVE bold graphic in navy and orange.

17. Movie:
I liked that new Seven Psychopaths movie.

18. Current skate trend:
Instagram

19. Partners in crime:
Haha. All right I’ll try and fit in as many as I can here: Kurt Hodge, Bricke Bros, Peanut, Freck$, $chultz, Booyah, D.Scher, Neal Wood, Whitey, Sned456 and many more..

20. Book:
Artie Lange’s “Too Fat to Fish”.

21. Question to be asked at a demo:
Maybe, “Can I have your Board?” with trucks on and all. Sorry I need my trucks!

22. Beverage:
Coffee for a kickstart. Water for a cool down.

23. Pro when you were a kid:
I guess I’d have to go with the Shorty’s team during their Fulfill the Dream era. We watched that video so many times.

24. Famous female/actress:
Cassandra from Wayne’s World. She’s a babe!

25. Thing about skateboarding:
It ties this whole crazy life together!
