A little bit about team rider, Ryan Wilhelm:
How many years have you been skating?
Well I got my first board when I was around 8, it was a Dragonball Z board with Goku on the bottom and I've been riding a board ever since. I didn't seriously get into skating until I was in the 8th grade though. That's when I was drawn to it and started practicing, so I would say about 6 years now.
Well I ride the Beetole 31" by Fs boards withVenture lows and OJ Wheels Geoff Rowley editions.
Ok well in my life, my parents obviously and my older brother Rich. For skating my good friend Dan Moro, who I skate with often, is always a big influence, as well as the whole Fs crew. My list of favorite skaters who influence me is never ending and constantly growing but the first skater to influence me was Mike Carroll and he's still my favorite. Lately Jason Dill has been on my mind and I've been watching a lot of his parts also.
Would you rather get eaten by a T-rex or sat on by an Elephant?
I'd rather neither because life is rad band both are kind of sad and painful ways to go out but if I had to choose I would say the Elephant. Who knows maybe it'd s*** before it sat on me and I'd squeeze my way outta there. "BABY BEETOLE" would live to see another day!
Dinner conversation with a homeless person or the president?
I probably have to go with the homeless man/women and ask him or her if they were okay telling me how they became homeless. Those men and women living on the streets usually have some really interesting stories to tell.
I tend to be too nice and then of course people take advantage of that, but I've gotten way better with that and also I used to have stupid OCD rituals that I did before I tried a trick I was sketched on.
Do you talk to cats?
Of course I do. I talk to the best cat I ever known, her name is Mojeux and she the squishiest, raddest, sexiest cat I ever known. RIP. You know she switch hardflipped Rincon and Hollywood High like is was nothing, nothing fem.
