Do you remember which was your first board?
Yeah, it was a Flip board, Ali Boulala pro model.
Your favorite skatemovie?
All the baker boys videos for sure, the way they skate and the lifestyle they live is just too sick! And I still like DGK a lot. Everybody has such steezy style!
Who is your favorite skater?
Furby, I really like his style. Best nollie flips in the game! Also love the way Herman looks at skateboarding. Wade DeSarmo also has one of the best styles, and he can do pretty much anything
There are some hard spots, but my favorite spot is a 7 stair at Vyšehrad. I’d say the best spot in Prague. Also when I was in Mallorca I liked the spots there a lot!
I don’t really drink alcohol. Just beers with my homies
