    what's a typical day for you?

    how do the sessions usually go? driving/skating to the spot? which homies? do you bring ramps often, what are some of your favorite spots and tricks you've done on them?

    what are some tricks you had to fight for? any crazy kick-out stories?

    any crazy party stories/weird shit you had to deal with lately?

    when did you start skating and what are some of your influences? how has it changed as you aged? how often and how much do you skate with a busy schedule?

    you travel a lot, road trips for skating and such. what are some famous spots you ran into?

    i've met a fair amount of pro skaters (i grilled with antwuan). what are some cool characters you've met?

    do you have any other outlets (drawing, music, athletic-type stuff, studying even)? do you think you should be doing more of that and less skateboarding? i find it enjoyable to skate a little less sometimes and read and stuff for more rest time.

    Favourite post-sesh beverage?
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    If you could choose your death, what would it be?
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    So many good questions.

    Do you enjo skating parks or street more?

    What does "good style" mean to you? Can it be learned?

    If you could go back in time right now would you fuck things up on purpose in skateboarding by doing tech tricks that would be mindblowing to witness in the 70's for example or would you just lay low and appreciate being able to watch some legends skate in person?

    OK Looks like more than enough questions. I will PM this to Ben then post the replies in a new thread when he's finished it and returned it.
