How are you finding Nass this year?
The weather is crazy! I’m not used to it anymore because I live in California now. The weather is not like this at all in LA so I get to skate most days, luckily. But it’s not that bad here really.
Did you move to LA to make a living out of skateboarding?
Yeah, I moved there for skateboarding, I make money through my sponsors and through competitions.
Is it important to you to do well in competitions?
Not really, because it’s not all about contests, it’s about everything; magazines, video parts, street skating. It’s all important.
Do you find it difficult being a female skater as obviously the men get paid more?
Yeah they get paid more, but I have my sponsors and they help me a lot so now I get to go to a lot of contests. I still get nervous though, I’m like “I have to do good” but I just want to go out there land my tricks and have fun with other girls.
It must be weird competing against your friends, how does that feel?
I’m used to it now, because I know them so it’s pretty chilled, I don’t mind who wins. I’m happy because Lacey Baker and Alexis Sablone are here, we are going to have a great time.
You job must involve a lot of traveling, how much are you away from home?
Oh god I’ve been traveling for 2 months! I went to Brazil for 10 days, then from there to Paris for the first stop of the World Cup. Then it was LA for ten days then back to Europe to Rome then Amsterdam for an Osiris trip. Then I went home for the X-Games for one week, stayed at my house for one day, then came here, next I’m going to Prague for a week, Barcelona for a month, then home for not even a month then off to Brazil!
What is the one thing you always take with you so you have a bit of home when you’re traveling?
My bandana, not really a piece of home…but I can’t skate without my bandana!
