Last skate video that changed your life - Aw shoot!! This is a hard one ... Well, I'd have to say Pretty Sweet. Man that video blew me away. Marc Johnson and Corey Kennedy blew me away. Those guys were meant to skateboard .. Such a God given talent!
Last skate trip - Last skate trip I went on was with the Airspeed team down to San Diego to skate Svitak's back yard mini 3' vert ramp with 4' extension and pool coping. It is always super nice having the whole team together to shred. We all have such different styles and personalites so it makes for good chemistry and skating.
Last trick you tried – I was in Vegas over the weekend and every time I had a chance to skate flat ground I'd find myself doing Switch F/S Bigspins. I don't know why but that trick is soooo much fun.
Last injury - Hmmmm ... I honestly don't remember. Wait ... Yes I do!! I was longboarding down the hill by my house to the beach and I was going pretty much 100mph and decided to push a few more times for more speed and on the second push I ended up running over my own toe and crashed super hard. My stuff flew everywhere, cars stopped to see if I was okay, and my board just continued down the hill. My response to anything embarrassing or slamming super hard is to laugh hysterically, so thats what I did and then went on my merry way.
Last trick in a video that blew your mind - Um, Oscar Meza's ender front board slide down some massive handrail ... Scared the Poo out of me. Such a talented dude. He likes to SMASH stuff.
Last spot your discovered - In Vegas over the weekend I found the best bank to ledge I've ever seen. This was shortly after being told by a local skater that there was no spots in that area. Either he was an idiot or he didn't want to give up the goods.
Last set up - My pro model for Endurance Skateboards called the "Power Buffalo", 8.25" Tork Trucks, Bones Wheels, Bones Reds Bearings, and my favorite Airspeed shoe the INDIO.
Last country you visited I went to England during the 2012 Summer Olympics ... It was such a mind blowing experience being there for the Olympics. So many different people from all over the world in one place. There was a sense of peace and it just felt right being there with so many other people.
Last inspiration - The Bible ... Was feeling pretty down and out and didn't have anyone to turn to so I just opened my bible and read the book of Matthew. I was super inspired and encouraged.
Last time you had a good laugh - My smokin hot GF and I left dinner at this mall and I was so full that I couldn't stop hiccuping. I was trying to have a serious conversation with her and then these random high pitched hiccups would come out unannounced and it got to the point that it was so ridiculous that we both burst into laughter until we couldn't breathe. IDK .. thought that was pretty funny.
Last thing you bought - I bought a Storm IQ Pearl bowling ball!! hahaha I'm an avid bowler. I think it is the best sport EVER!!
Last song you obsessed with - The last song I was obsessed with would be Brandon Flowers song called Right Behind you ... I don't know exactly what it is about that song but the beat, melody, and lyrics are amazing. Give er' a listen!
Last movie you liked - The Perks of Being a Wallflower was a super good movie ... Don't ask me to tell you about it cause all I remember is Emma Watson! haha
Last shoe that blew your mind - The Zac Archuleta Pro Model that is coming out Early 2014 ... It is an amazing and comfortable shoe. Great board feel and looks great on and off your board. Pick them up at Wal-Mart soon. hahhahaha JK... I am really into the Indios. They are just clean, simple, and allow great board feel. Make sure you pick up a pair or 2!
Last stupid thing you did - One night when I was watching some PBA bowling tournament I went downstairs to my kitchen to get a drink and didn't notice this at the time but I put my TV remote in the freezer. After giving up and going to bed after not being able to find it, I woke up the next morning and opened the freezer and much to my surprise my remote was in the freezer. What an IDIOT! haha
Last pet peeve - 2 pet peeves ... Smoking and people that only respond with one word answers. Both drive me crazy!!
Last good trend - Ha ha ha, I'd have to say the cat shirt craze. It is so funny seeing people wearing cat or kitten graphics on their t-shirts, hats, etc ... It always makes me smile. Thats why is my favorite trend right now.
Last trend you hate - I hate the upside down Cross trend .. Kids, Fashion Peeps, and such think it is super cool to put an upside down cross on everything. It just bugs me cause they don't even know what they are representing. Eh, whatevs....
Last resolution - My last resolution was to manage my time better and include eating healthier and working out into my schedule. I've been getting better but its a work in progress.
Last time you cook - I always cook for my little brother and myself ... I cooked my family green chilli burrito recipe that will start a party in your mouth!! They're amazing ... pay me some $$ and i'll make them for you.
Last crush - I don't know ... Hmmm, the last time I had an Orange Crush soda had to of been a couple years ago. They're delicious!!
Last dream - I had a dream that my brother, my gf, and myself took a train to mars and along the way there were lamas spitting at us from nearby stars. My gf hates lamas so that was pretty funny. We got to mars and was greeted by Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, and Fergi. We all just hung out and had a party and then I woke up ... Pretty shweet!
Last fight - Got in a fist fight with a close friend and room mate a few years back over something stupid .. A week later we apologized and then got over it. haha Friends have to scuffle sometimes. Its fun!!
Last person you want have to meet - Your mom ... I heard she has this huge crush on me!!
Last words - Make your own Luck ... Fight for what you believe in!!
