what do you miss about the old days?  Well this is really not a tough question at all ,The thing I miss most about the old days are all my old bros ,there was such a freedom with skating back in the day there was not much attitude you were just one of the guys if you skated, nothing mattered you could just grab your board ,head downtown and hit some of the rad spots and you always hooked up with someone even if you didn’t know them ,they were like your best friend by the end of the day…

if you could do it all over - what would you change? Well this one is a little harder to answer..but I think there are only two  things I would have changed and they are as follows …

favourite memories from back in the day? 
Skating at Suds was always a blast rite from the start when all they had was a slider bar and a launch ramp, things were simple. The Cage Ramp opened up a new door for us and mini ramp was a new high. Being able to see Pros like Jason Jessee and Jeff Kendall. looking forward to Ramp Attack ,Street attack was a Summer ritual  and I felt somewhat honor to have the privilege to compete in them. Lets not forget when suds moved  Wow what a great place it was mini ramps indoors street stuff yes even a leaky roof LOL but best of all the outdoor vert ramp was sweet getting to skate with Tony Hawk was way too cool. My personal best memory was shaking hands and shooting the sh*t whith the man Steve Alba (SALBA) There are just way to many good times to list here I guess we will just have to all get together and remanice over a few beers..I just hope the new generation of skaters is having the same great times. Its all about having fun, skating with your bros, it doesn’t matter what you skate, how you skate But that you skate…..
