Vegetable Shredder – Nigel Hendricks

Vegan Skateboarder Nigel Hendricks Texas PlantNAME: Nigel Hendricks

LOCATION: Austin, Texas

OCCUPATION: Screenprinting/ part time student

Where do you like skating? House park in downtown Austin or any other skatepark in the Austin area

Why did you go Veg? Animal rights is a major theme in a lot of punk music that I listen to, so once I read the lyrics from those songs I started questioning the ethics of consuming animal products. After that it didn’t take much more research to realize how horrible it is to support the exploitation of animals.

What is your favorite thing to skate and why? I like skating just about everything, but my absolute favorites are bowls with pool coping and curbs.

What shoe are you skating in now? Chuck Taylors because the sole lasts forever so all you need to do is shoe goo the side where it rips from ollies and they will last months. Not the most comfortable though. Hopefully I’ll get some Emericas next.

Or just say whatever you want about skating Veg… Why support torture for a product you don’t need?

Thanks for this excellent vegetable shredder and massive Texas-plant, Nigel! I’ve skated that quarter pipe, it’s in the middle of the woods and it’s SCARY!  If you’re veg and shred, send in a some photos and the answer to all these questions to  Don’t forget a mailing address so we can get you some rad stickers.
