NAME: James Alby
LOCATION: Portland, OR
OCCUPATION: I work for Stumptown Coffee.
Where do you like skating? I cruise the streets of Portland, looking for spots that aren’t really skate spots. Things out of the ordinary.
Why did you go Veg? I was vegetarian for awhile because I didn’t want to contribute to the suffering of animals, other living beings. I went vegan when I gained more knowledge and understanding about the dairy and egg industry.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why? I like pole-jams, wall-rides, barriers, and anything sketchy or crusty. But my absolute favorite thing is curbs because I can charge at them with full speed and have fun. Slappies forever!
What shoe are you skating now? Huf Classic Hi’s. All black, canvas. I really want to try Servant Footwear next!
Or just say whatever you want about skating Veg… Skate fast. Eat like you give a damn.
James is the Pole Jam king of Portland! I’m glad to call this guy a friend and it is always a blast to skate with him. Thanks for sending this in James!
