Morning hours, whittling

Seeking out the Sun

Familiar shapes and navy skies

Darkness comes undone

As the Sun does rise

Recognition blooms

Mysteries in the light becoming nothing new

Night is the basswood block

Hidden possibilities

Day is the knife

Carving out reality

  • [ ] 1. How long have you been freestyle skateboarding for?
    About two and a half years now – I started skateboarding during the 2020 covid lockdowns and went straight to freestyle. Glad the pandemic hobby stuck.
  • [ ] 2. What is your current board setup?
    I switch between the Waltz Huntington 7,4” deck, Independent 109 trucks, and Donut Wheels, and a custom-made Gary Hillock deck. I’m not very picky, just give me a narrow single-kick board (7,3″-7,4″) with a tiny wheelbase (under 12,75″), barely any concave, and a cute graphic… okay, maybe I am a little picky.
  • [ ] 3. What is your current favourite trick as well as one you’re close to getting?
    I just really love Caspers! And while I started getting “the running (wo)man” and rail toe spins more consistently recently, I just want to focus on smoother, quicker, and more complex footwork. The…

1. As I last checked, you’re in the States right now for a pro freestyle contest in Arizona. You’re quite the skateboarding globe-trotter! What contest or event sticks out to you the most? Any specific memories or stories you’d mind sharing with us?

1. I’ve been getting around a bit! I’ve been lucky enough to skate in a lot of contests, ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous. One that’ll always stick out to me is my first contest, Paderborn 2015(?) I think it was. I was advised to enter pro despite only being back into freestyle for a short while. I got utterly smoked, which led me to have a difficult relationship with contests from then on in. I think that baptism of fire was a good thing looking back on it. It motivated me to work a lot harder.

2. Your skating is—among other things—lightning fast. Did you…

Set the Course

A push to move things forward

No use waiting for a chance

“Life is what you make of it”

Something often said

Directionless for decades

Drifting through the years

Fighting hesitation and a thousand little fears

Leave it all behind

Choose progress over death

Find your strength

Take pride in every step

The Edge of Everything

Passing through cracked sky

Slipping between clouds

Rising

High above the ground

From troposphere to stratosphere, mesosphere and on

Through boundaries, into the beyond

Deep space

Past the reaches of our familiar Sun

Seeing in a new light

See the universe undone

Fraying at the edges

Lost void

Grand precipice

Gaze into the well

Cast yourself and make a wish

Season Out Of Sync

Closing out the year
