We heard you used to be a rapper, tell us a bit more about how that happened? 

“Ive always been closely connected to urban culture (skating, music etc) and MC’d for a band named CY Cowboys.Myself and a good mate started the band by accident as he was working on a sound engineering project and needed some vocals. We ended up making three records. Good fun!”

 

What is it about the skating scene that (using your own lines) “you dig”? 

“Exploring a city in a way that is unusual is what I really dig about skating, the culture has now meshed with Hip Hop and Graffiti in big ways. All these elements are nostalgic as they remind me of my childhood.”
