SKATRED: What percent of you loves skateboarding and what percent of you hates it?
Alex: I mean I will alway’s love it just for where it has taken me and the people I have met. So 70% I love it and what I hate about it is that you put all this time and energy into this thing you love. When you get to be about thirty something years old and you’re not as good as the kids you really don’t have much to fall back on.
So have a back up ready kids…..
Best and worst things about skateboarding?
Best, skating with friends and having fun. Worst, everything else in skating
Heroes in or out of the skateboard community… name em’
Sean Sheffy, Hemut Newton,Andy Warhol,James Murphy,Irving Penn and the list goes on and on..
What do most skateboarders lack?
What are you into creatively… art type stuff that interests you?
Well I been shooting photos for awhile now and make just random art stuff. Oh also make music but only have made one song.
If you had to go down in history as doing one trick in skateboarding, what trick would it be?

What has been your favorite or most memorable trip?
The first beauty and the beast
5 most prized posessions?
My Camera’s and music stuff.
Is it still a Quicksilver shirt over a Girl shirt?
None of them, a blank shirt. I feel like wearing shirts with logos is a young thing so I don’t have many shirts with logos.
Thanks Alex. Hope these questions weren’t too
Naw it won’t be
THANKS AGAIN, ALEX! -SKATRED
