• How did you get into bmx? (Is there any person or particular reason you got into bmx)?
Well it all started when I was about 9 years old. I was at that age where a boy tries to figure out whether He can skate or bike in life. lol Sooo I first tried a skateboard and lets juts say i hated it.! Haha couldn’t keep my balance for shit, and I couldn’t olie neither lol and im that guy that has to be good at everything haha so i gave the skateboard up quickly lol. Luckily my older cousin fernie was there and he looks at me and tells me “check this out Jr” Then he grabbed a redline bmx bike that my pops had bought me and proceeded to lay down one of our trash cans and bunny hops over it like it was nothing!. Then he pedaled acouple times and did a “huge” 360 tire tap and I was instantly hooked after that moment!.
• What is your all time favorite company in bmx after all these years?
I actually have 3. FamiliarBrand, PeepGame, and TheTrip. #Nuffsaid!
• What are (3) of your favorite bmx websites that you visit most frequently?
• What are (3) NON – bmx website’s that you visit most frequently?
• Musically; what are you currently listening to?
Trap music aka Trap Rap is all i need in life!. Haha I mean after all i am a “TrapLord” 😉 haha
• How has BMX changed since you were a young lad cruising these streets?
Well the notoriety of it to begin with lol back then nobody knew about BMX , it definitely wasn’t as popular as skateboarding. Nowadays everybody and their mom thinks they know what it is haha. And also the tricks being done now are insane! You got guys pushing the bar on Insta every day trying to one up each other and shit!! Haha back then when I was younger you would only imagine tricks like these Being done, Or do them yourself in the all time greatest bmx game ever Dave Mirra 1 & 2.! R.i.p dave mirra 🙏🏻.
• just a wild guess; Where do you see BMX going in the future?
I see it becoming bigger then skateboarding in the near future! 😉
What direction would you like to see it go?
Not really a direction but the only thing i would personally ask for is to get rid of plastic pegs! Haha i miss the sounds of grinds in bmx videos nowadays!. Nothing like the sounds of metal grinding on metal or cement lol. “Steel is real” plastic is for skate parks and the only exception in street would be for grinding aluminum rails or a rough ledge haha.
Its been fun but this is the end..
• Final words?
As matter of fact there is!! lol im working on alittle project/brand that I got coming out s.o.o.n and its gonna be dope as fuck. so like I been telling everybody, grab your self a comfy chair and big bucket of popcorn and enjoy the show!. Shit’s gon’ be lit as fuck!! 🛋🍿😉
