this is probably the only week i’ll ever update this much
I asked Andrew a few questions about his trip to New Zealand:
where did you go when you were over there? what was your favourite place and why?
i flew into auckland on the norh island and just stayed on the north island the whole time. it was awesome i really liked it alot. i never really went any farther north then auckland but i went all the way down to wellington for x air which was a pretty cool drive. got to see some cool scenery and ride some really fun parks. my favourite park i rode when i was there was probably raglan. its super awesome kinda clover shaped bowl right on the beach. i had so much fun riding there and the town itself was really nice too, its just a small little surfing town.
how did x-air compare to a contest over here?
x-air didnt really feel that much different than a metro jam. qualifying was a bit different though, you got 2 one minute runs. it was just kinda weird for me cause that was the first non jam format contest i rode in. but the finals are run in a 3 person jam. so that felt no different especially since they even had grotbags announcing too.
did you meet mike spinner? if so is he as awesome as he is on the internet?
hahahah i never really actually talked to him or read much of the stuff he has said on the internet, so i dont really want to say too much about this…. but if the stuff that i over heard coming out of his mouth is any indication, then the answer would have to be yes.
I’ve begun collecting contest prizes for the year. This is a new screen that I drew with a sharpie; it’s a haiku. I’ve chosen the two greatest clothing articles to put the graphic on and though I think these may end up being one offs (because tie dyes and tank tops are a little too rad for the average person), e-mail me if you want something with that graphic.
