Tell us about your skating in the:
00´s: Back when I was rollerblading, remember seeing all the local rippers from “Akafa Thisted” having a blast, the crew and everything around them was just amazing! They where drinking beers, doing flips, grinds and all that shit, and I was like: Fuuuck!! That’s what I wanna do, that’s where I wanna be!! And so I started skating.
10´s: Just rolling and rolling over the years, can’t believe they’re already gone.
