Alittle bit more about founder, board builder, and rider, Gerry Kreuder:
How many years have you been skating?
Since I could walk just about. My uncle gave me a 70's plastic banana board when I was 2 or 3 and I've been firmly planted on a skateboard ever since.
I tend to rotate between a few different set ups but right now I'm rocking the Rake with Cal 44's and Blood Orange Wheels for the hills and for the park/streets I ride the 32" Q stick with Caliber standards and Divine park wheels.
Well in general life definitely my family and friends. Especially my mom and my brother. They constantly push me to follow my goals and pursue my passions. I wouldn't have gotten this far without them. Skating wise there's a lot of people. Everyone who I skate with for starters. A few off the top of my head would be James Kelly, Byron Essert, Eric Jensen, Ian Joe Dutch, and Ethan Cochard.
Would you rather marry an orc or have no thumbs for the first 3 hours of everyday?
Having no thumbs would prove difficult for board building and most things in life, but I really would not like to marry an orc. That would be terrible. I think I'd have to go with no thumbs and just wake up earlier.
Dinner conversation with Leonardo Da Vinci or Leonardo Dicaprio?
Well for design purposes and art and stuff Da Vinci would be the way to go but for having a good time I feel like Dicaprio would fit that vibe. He seems like a pretty chill dude.
One word. Three syllables. You guessed it, tobacco.
How many baked potatoes do you think you could eat in 45 minutes?
Umm probably 10 I think. I guess I'll just have to try it and see what happens.
