When I was about 9 or 10 I got my first board. I’ve been skating more seriously for about 8 or 9 years now.
The Jersey Devil. Vicious Grip. Caliber 44s. Riptide WFB bushings: 95.5a fat cones boardside and 93a barrels roadside. Blood Orange Morgan Wheels, 82a. Whatever built-in bearings I can get.
Biggest influences in skateboarding?
Silly shit and people who don’t take skating too seriously. Louie Barletta, Mark Gonzales, Ethan Cochard, Ian Joe Dutch.
That’s an easy one, thinking too much.
Best memory Skateboarding?
Getting first place in my first heat at my first race ever in the pouring rain. Central Mass 8, 2017
First trip to North Carolina in 2016. Took a badline on a technical corner and slipped out on some wet leaves and crap. Got all flipped around and hit my back and ribs. Bruised my ribs, but got away pretty lucky otherwise.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Owning a tiny house in NC, living near my homies, still pursuing my dreams skating and creating.
Why do you skate?
It makes me feel good. When I’m not skating I don’t feel quite right. It helps me manage and combat stress and anxiety. It’s a huge part of self esteem and creativity.
I am fluent in Spanish.
