LOCATION: Austin, Texas

OCCUPATION: College Student/Job Searching

Where do you like skating? Stairs and Transition. I’m constantly injured from throwing myself down stuff but it’s worth it for the ride-away. I’m not great at transition, but doing what I can do on it is super fun.

Why did you go Veg? For the animals first and foremost.  I’ve been listening to anarcho-punk music like Conflict and Aus-Rotten for years so that really helped me always have the vegan option in my mind.The health benefits just kinda come with the package haha.

What is your favorite thing to skate and why? Probably a chill five-six stair or five 1/2 miniramp. Minimum danger, maximum fun.

What shoe are you skating in now? The Geoff Rowley Reissue of his vegan shoe. I bought two pairs cause they were on sale but I usually just skate in regular Chuck Taylors.

Or just say whatever you want about skating Veg… It’s the best decision I’ve ever made. It doesn’t affect my skating much, except now I’ll make something to eat beforehand instead of eating greasy fast food on the way to a skate spot haha.



Joshua is coming to us from Austin with some mini-ramp fast-plant action. If there was any more shape to that board I would swear it was 1990. Seriously, check out those Chucks!   Thanks for sending this in Joshua!  Your style truly makes some of us old men feel a little younger today!

If you’re eating veg and skateboard, send us the a picture of you skating and your answers to the above questions to  Don’t forget your mailing address so we can hook you up with some Vegan Skate Blog stickers!
