Name: Jimmy Hoang
Location: Worcester, Massachusetts
Occupation: Loving Hut Hamilton. I’m a part time chef.
Where do you like skating?: Eggs in Boston.
Why did you go veg?: I was actually born and raised a vegetarian. I became vegan when I was twelve years old because my family and I decided being a vegetarian wasn’t enough and it defeated the purpose of being against animal cruelty. To really be against animal cruelty and support animal rights; It just didn’t make sense to still be consuming milk and wearing leather.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why?: I enjoy skating everything but if I had to choose, flat ground is my favorite thing to skate. Its what I grew up skating everyday and I just love the feeling of doing a solid flat ground kickflip.
What shoes are you skating in right now?: Fallen The Vibes
Say whatever I want about skating vegan…: Being vegan has unlocked my full potential and strength to keep pushing forward on and off my skateboard.
