1. Go-to-trick:
Maybe a powerslide if i’m lucky. I fall a lot.

2. Warm up spot: 
Slappy curb & some good flatground

3. John Lucero memory:
On a Back in Black premier trip in Portland, Lucero, Mumford & myself had just landed & were in search of a bar. We were waiting for Chet to show up & were all pretty unfamiliar with the area. We stopped by a pizza joint & asked were we could get some beverages, they told us to head two blocks down the street. Stark St… . John ordered a margerita & Matt made a joke about the photo’s on the wall (all half nude men). After a quick sip & a brief look around John light heartedly stated, “Uh, think this is a dude bar.” We finished our drinks on the patio noticing the name of the place was Starky’s.  I’m sure the pizza shop employees had a good laugh about that one.

4. Funniest Luda Crooks Quote: 
Holy shit there’re a million. Maybe, “You don’t wanna get beat up on your day off”, or “Yo lemme get an Enci-latte with extra mark”. Encinitas is the town I live in right now, it’s a butthole yuppy surf town & LUDA appropriately calls it that. He fucking rules.
