HOWS LIFE?
GOOD DOG JUST CHILLEN IN NYC RIGHT NOW

SIGNAL IS A PRETTY COOL SNOWBOARD COMPANY. HOW IS RIDING FOR THEM?
SIGNAL IS HOME FOR ME.  I COULDN’T SEE MYSELF RIDING FOR ANY OTHER COMPANY.  THEIR JUST DOPE PEOPLE THAT ARE DOWN FOR SNOWBOARDING

WE HAVE THE JAKE PARK BOARD THIS YEAR. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION?

THE CONSTRUCTION IS THE SAME AS ANY SIGNAL PARK SERIES. BUT WITH A KILLER ASS GRAPHIC.

HOW ABOUT THE GRAPHIC?
DOPE AS HELL.  WHO DOESN’T WANT BATS ON YOUR BOARD WHILE SHREDDIN? AND PLUS THEY THREW SOME HOUSE OF 1817 LOVE ON THE BOARD WHICH IS STRAIGHT THUNDER

SIGNAL USED THAT GRAPHIC ON THE ALL WOOD “SLED,” DID YOU GET A CHANCE TO RIDE IT?

NAH I HAVN’T YET BUT I’M FORSURE GONNA TRY IT OUT SOON.  LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BE FUN.

SO WHAT IS HOUSE OF 1817?

ITS AN ADRESS TO MY HOMIES PLACE.  I WAS A COUCH SURFER THERE.  MY BUDDY HODGE WANTED TO START SOMETHING IN SNOWBOARDING AND SKATING.  IT’S BLOW UP SINCE THEN AND I’M SOOOO HYPED ON IT.  MAD EDITS CHECK IT HOUSEOF1817.BLOGSPOT.COM OR DIE

DOES EVERY CALENDER IN THE HOUSE SAY OCTOBER 31ST?
THAT WOULD BE PRETTY SWEET BUT NAH THAT IS WHEN THE SNOWBOARD VID IS DROPPIN!  BIG PARTY

I SAW YOU DISLOCATE YOUR ARM WHILE WORKING ON TRANSWORLD’S “IN COLOR.” IT DIDN’T LOOK LIKE IT FAZED YOU MUCH. DID IT HURT?

HAHA NO NOT AT ALL. ACTUALLY NOTHING EVEN HAPPENED TO ME. THAT WAS MY FIRST HIT AND I SOMETIMES STRAIGHT UP ZONE OUT WHILE FILMING AND MANAGE TO GET LUCKY AND WALK AWAY.  I WAS PROABLY REALLY SUPER FUCKIN PISSED THOUGH

IT WOULD BE RAD IF YOU COULD DISLOCATE IT WHENEVER YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF STRAIGHT JACKETS LIKE RIGGS IN LETHAL WEAPON.

I’VE NEVER DISLOCATED ANYTHING IN MY LIFE BUT THAT WOULD BE TIGHT. I’D DO COOLER THINGS THAN SLIP OUT OF STRAIGHT JACKETS

HOW WAS FILMING FOR IN COLOR?
SUPER RAD. GOT TO SEE SOME CRAZY SHIT GO DOWN AND PLUS I WAS WITH A BUNCH OF HOMIES THE WHOLE TIME.  VIDEO IS GOING TO BE SOOO ILL. ALOT OF CRAZY NAMES IN THAT VID I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THIS WINTER?

GO TO AMSTERDAM FOR QUEENSDAY AND FILM FOR VG AND HOUSE OF 1817 AND SHRED HYLAND EVERYDAY
