Where do you like skating? The bowls at Volcom skatepark in Costa Mesa.
Why did you go Veg? I was at a 108/Gather/7 Generations show in Santa Barbara and saw videos of animals being tortured on factory farms. It was impossible for me to act like those realities didn’t exist after seeing the videos, so I stopped supporting an industry that didn’t give a shit about animals.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why? Any bowl, pool, tunnel, ditch or mini ramp. I’m a surfer so I like to flow and go fast, like surfing an endless wave.
What shoe are you skating in now? Vans originals and low top Converse. I’ve had the Ed Templeton Transist shoe (very uncomfortable for me) and éS Theory canvas shoes (the comfiest but a little more bulky).
Or just say whatever you want about skating Veg… If you enjoy boycotting fucked up industries and want to limit your dating pool even more, try being straight edge! But seriously, it’s nice to know that other vegan skateboarders exist. Thanks Kerry!
I met Erica at a Zine Fest in San Francisco. She was heckling me and my young friend while we skated around the yard. If you’re Veg and skate, copy down these questions and send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org Don’t forget a mailing address so we can get you some rad stickers.
