Age:  24
Sponsors:  Arbor Skateboards. Caliber Trucks, Chip 87, Lucid Eyewear and Bummer California.

What set-up are you riding right now? Board, trucks, wheels, grip, hardware…
I’m always riding the same set up: 8.5 Arbor Whiskey deck, 8.5 Caliber hollow standards, Bones Swiss, Bones 55 V5’s, Mob grip and Indy hardware.

What’s the most fun DIY, skater-built or renegade spot that you’ve skated lately?
Cleveland has this epic spot called Fun Wall. It’s amazing! All the heavy skaters in the area built it and the foundation is huge!

Have you ever built something to skate?
I used to have a few mini ramps in my backyard in upstate New York with a fly out to a vert wall. Those were the good ole days.

Who do you like to skate with the most these days?
Mickey O’Keefe, Sam Baker, Haden McKenna, Sean Imes, but most of the time I like my own solo adventures. Acid Drop.

Coolest skateboard graphic you have seen lately?
I’m just focused on pushing my wood. Graphics aren’t too important to me anymore, but I do have to say I’m so into whatever Blood Wizard is doing. Shout out to those guys!

Best thing you’ve ever skated in a skatepark and what skatepark was it?
The Venice Beach snake run never seems to fail me.

Favorite skateboarders of all time?
The Gonz! Rodney Mullen, Daewon Song, John Cardiel and Tony Trujillo.

Is there anything that hasn’t been built to skate yet that you’d like to see built?
Pump track on steroids!

What’s one of the best road trips you ever took?
Hawaii with the Arbor crew for sure!

Are there any skate-related charities that you support?
Not really, my bad.

What music have you been listening to lately?
Tons of David Bowie and Tool.

What do you consider the responsibilities of a professional skateboarder?
Filming always and staying positive with the fans!

Which skate shops do you support and go to the most?
Arbor Venice all day.

What is your favorite skate photo of all time?
Anything Cardiel.

What is your take on girls skateboarding?
It rules! I have a four-year-old daughter and she is almost as into it as much as I am! Power to them!

What skateboarding memorabilia do you have that means the most to you?
Flip Sorry always.

Who contributes the most to your local skate scene?
Jesse Martinez 100 percent.

Top three favorite skate tricks?
Ollies, backside noseblunts (rails or transition) and kickflips.

Do you think skateboarding should be in the Olympics?
It doesn’t matter to me. I’ll always be pushing.

What is your proudest moment in skateboarding so far?
It’s going to sound weird, but I had a deep conversation with Rodney Mullen not long ago and that was a dream come true.

ABOUT THE JUICE MAGAZINE STATE OF SKATE:

When we started Juice Magazine 22 years ago, you could count the number of skateparks on one hand and grindable pool coping was mostly a distant memory. Now there are thousands of skateparks all over the world, along with a vast quantity of DIY spots built to skate. In 1993, the majority of skateboarders listened to punk rock or hip hop exclusively. Now skateboarders listen to almost every kind of sound created. Two decades ago, skateboarding related charities were non-existent. Today, there are numerous non-profits giving back to skateboarding in many ways. One of the most important differences between now and then is that, 22 years ago, there was a clear division between old school and new school skateboarding. Now that wall of separation has followed the same path as the Berlin Wall, allowing for an unprecedented unification of skateboarders all over the globe. Great strides have been made for girls that skate as well as the acceptance of skate history and long overdue recognition for skateboarding’s pioneers and its artifacts. At the same time, the current generation of skateboarders is taking skateboarding to new heights, previously unimaginable. As the landscape of the skateboarding industry changes on a daily basis, and the topic of skateboarding in the Olympics rears its head once again, along with the disturbing subject of who controls skateboarding being tossed about by corporate entities, we decided it was time to take a good look at the State of Skate. We asked 20 questions to 100 skateboarders, ages 8 to 58, and found that skateboarding is as diverse as the skateboarders that are addicted to it, no one controls skateboarding except skateboarders, and the State of Skate is savage and strong. Now get out there and skate tough!
