I’m half ten. I had an early night, I was just going to bed and was like, “Oh, fuck!” Emailed you and then fell asleep. Got the interview anyway I guess, (laughs). But yeah, just woke up.
Sorry for the delay getting back in touch with you…
Oh man, it’s sweet. Yesterday I was helping my girlfriend move out and then when you were actually calling me I was talking to Middsey (Chris Middlebrook), the Nike TM over here. He just got back and every conversation with him is at least an hour long. Just catching up and stuff so could hear the beeps come through and you trying to call but yeah, we made it, (laughs).
Let’s get this going then. So, you got on Nike SB shortly after Gravis went under, how did that come around?
Gravis pretty much went bust overnight and I just kept skating like normal and got shoes off friends or whoever. Then Middsey had a chat to me and was up for it, he gave me some shoes to try out and that’s pretty much it. I was just about to go on a little trip to New Zealand with some mates and from there it continued. Then I officially got on and started filming this part.
