Bio Statement

Considering That the Internet pushed the ol' Fast Forward In a veritable Space Rush to get on top of the next thing that'llcapture the imagination of the world's thrashers, marketeers, filmmakers as well as the websites are on the skateboarding sport.Time lapse?

 Claymation? Baby powder? Helicopters?!! Undoubtedly there's been some wonderful visuals in the past couple of decades,and also our grinds have never seemed so magical when seen on our iPhones' tiny screens. Nevertheless, there is a definite predilection Among those in the area, while pursuing the upcoming window of to make a wrong turnawesomeness or two and end up--unwittingly. With this metaphor, think about scrapes and Destroy movie a enema : Straight-forwardshredding, visceral VX, the Bake and all. It's the Baker skateboards team doing what they do best.

You understand, skateboarding.Thrasher is honored to give this DVD together with our mag 'cause away it represents what we value: A group of friends, rippingthe roads and having fun. Due to the skaters on the Baker group for making this and Beagle Drew, Doughnut, Independent Altamonthappen. Bake and Destroy eternallyKEVIN SPANKY LONGWhen was the last time you can remember not Being on a deadline that is video? This is Skateboarding. There've been little There is always something in the works or round the corner, although exotic cruisespans. How did this project differ from beyond Videos--as far as the things your expectations on your own and you would like to skate? This definitely felt like that there was less pressure. The Boss made it clear to everybody that we should get whatever we get. Itwas a short period to picture in, and a few people were injured for a fantastic portion of the time. I was just hoping to get ashit in there. The entire thing was more entertaining than the normal video craze, although the deadline was just like any other. Describe the Baker team movie.

 What are the pros and cons of crews and a filmer? We jump in the van and find out where it takes us. Men shout out spots, and Beagle will only take us to some shit if nobody hassomething in your mind. It rips being with a crew since the dudes keep the hype up. So far as cons, I guess you gotin the eventthat you wan na skate something special, ta talk. Since the pressure of bringing the entire crew usually turns me off, I don'ttalk. Under what conditions would you set up a solo Mission with you and the filmer? Man, quite infrequently. The LA stuff that was high happened very A couple of times again.

So I guess it's for shit youtried andis currently weighing on you. I can not believe you went back to these LA High Banks again after all the wild tricks you've already done there. Can youanticipate more sexy moves on these things in the future even? Thanks. That spot's torturous, but I really like it. I am positive these crazy kiddies got more for this, and I definitely gotsome more bones to pick with that bad boy. You skate pools within this movie. What's your take on pool skating? It's the best. You just can not match the entire Operation: Finding them, the-in-and-out vibe, the weird rules... Among the rarethings that make me feel just like a little child again. Do you think you have to be a little older to appreciate pools? Fuck no. You just gotta hop a couple fences And skate a few to appreciate it.

The things these real pool rippers do is luckingmind-blowing. It is only a different level. What mental steps do You Need to take to Forgive a friend who puts you? That doesn't take any effort. When one of your Best friends accidentally causes you pain and distress, it is still an accident. Iam not perfect, and nobody else has to be. Was it retarded? Yes. Was he trying to hurt me? No. That is the factor that isdecisive. Were there any promises made, for example "I Promise to never put you on fire again?" You know what? I think he might have really Said that right after. Seriously. I still have to shoot him a really disapproving lookwhenever I see him playing with fire, though.

"Put the fucking lighter down right now, idiot." Perhaps you have known a skater to call the cops On himself to escape having to keep trying a hint? I'm gonna plead the fifth. A kid Who tells on another kid is a dead child. Do you ever venture out on just how much the World Wide Web Has changed the job of an expert skater, even in the past couple ofdecades? God, every day. I hard on how it's Affecting our society. It disturbs me. I miss the old days. I'm really making an effort toadapt and adopt that, simply because I do not want to get left behind. So I look at the Thrasher site and do my assignments. Iforce myself. Are demands that are online cramping your style?

They are probably cramping my relevance as a pro. I'm not online enough to understand I am dismissing it. SPANKY CONTINUEDIs it having Jerry in LA?The best. He lives like three cruiser-board Pushes away. It is a life-changer with that dude. He's my Yoda that is Asian. MaybeBrobi Wan Kenobi. Do you ever tell yourself, "Well, at Least I'll never slam as hard as Jerry..."? Of course. It's hard for me to watch him slam, though.

Me hurt. Knock on wood, what is your worst harm Can you get over it? I cant imagine anything being worse than the Burn, but that was temporary and doesn't affect me anymore. So far as skate-relatedaccidents, I have had three small knee surgeries. They were never that painful, but always untimely and with lame outcomes. Can Trixie really beat on you Match on Skate Rock? Dude, totally! Granted I was wasted on lots Of warm shot-gunned Sparks, but she's just a monster. I truly give it up to her.

I received no shame in losing a battle of strength. I'm astonished I won the first oneI have a house out here. My family is out here. I come out here there is not much happening in Los Angeles. Skating going on inLA, so I am out there most of the time. I have a flat in LA.. But I come up here and kick it with the family, hang out with mybrother when we get back from a trip or when nothing is happening. What do you do out here?Mostly only a lot of car stuff. There's Desert-style parties, small river things, I go to my mom's...

But the majority of the timeI spend here, it's working on cars. It's been about five years which you and your Brother happen to be fixing cars up. Just how many do you have under your belts?Just how many Herman Brother automobiles are there on earth? Four or three, that are completely done. Shit... That. It's three. Tell us about the one that you guys made for Your mother. That one is magnificent. It is her dream Automobile--the one since she was 14 years old, she's wanted. She may have desired it formore than that. We always heard about it: "1967 Camaro; 1967 Camaro." When we were growing up, she be talking about that vehicle.Finally we came. It just happened to work out--we had all the components we had to complete it and all of the tools. It took twodecades to build it, and so she would not find it, we needed to be very sneaky.

I received this house right around Christmas butwe had not moved in yet, so we parked the car in the garage and pulled over here, stating we just wanted to show her the newlocation. We put "Merry Christmas" on the car with a big bow. She flipped out. She was so hyped and she lost it, with tears of joyand all that. It had been so much cooler that my brother and I had left it for her. It meant much more to us, and it meant more toher that we'd built it. What is your best Beagle narrative from the filming Of the vid? Man, everyday you hang out with him is another "best Beagle story." We had been outside skating one time, and after about 45minutes I still hadn't gotten the first trick in a two-trick line. Beagle will put up with anything, and I was being a sissydaily. I eventually did the suggestion, but then I dropped pushing towards the moment because I was exhausted. I kicked my boardout and it flew down by Beagle's second camera. He went to ensure everything was OK, and when he walked away his plank broke.Boards never split. I always stomp and neglect, but just hoping to snap it is usually enough to relieve whatever's happening withme...

But this time I jumped onto it and snapped it in half! Thus Beagle didn't even care, and I went from pissed off to feelinglike a complete dick. He cared about was the way he went to film. He loves filming--he enjoys everything about it. He was stokedto film this video. He makes everything so fucking fun. Cruise skate and out. That is his shit. What is your favorite trick, of anybody's, in Bake And Destroy? There's a bunch of shit that I am psyched on. I Enjoy Braydon trick with all the foot flip out. Figgy's crooks are loved by me .Drew's half-Cab flip nose is simply mad. Lots of stand-outs in the movie, for me. Are you pleased with your part?Sure! We had eight months to film a movie. That was the point: To make it fun. We usually have a couple of years to picture, wepick on the best three minutes from what we get. However, this time, they stated, "Do what you do and keep it fun." If they'd havesaid, "Go hard! Go hard!"

I stressed out and would have lost it. Out there kicking it with the homies but everyone kept itentertaining. BRYAN HERMAN CONTINUEDWhat would you say were worst and the Very Best Things to happen during the making of this video? The thing is that we filmed an amazing video. The thing is that Nuge got hurt half-way through. Dustin got hurt. Certainly, theinjuries were the worst of it. It is not like anyone was not attempting to skate. Theyall'd still come out although they had beenhurt. Good answer to a question that is dumb! Who's got The part that individuals will trip out on, despite the fact that they might notbe anticipating? Cyril Jackson. No one has seen him yet so they Do not understand exactly what to expect, but it was killed by CJ . Dee Ostranderkills it. There is a good deal of cool things in this thing. Figgy is a monster. I enjoy watching him skate. He is definitelychoosing everything on the first attempt. His skating is really gnarly. The things he is doing on 14-stair railings...

Man, Iwould love to be able to do some of that stuff on a seven-stair. Like! Cut on that railing in half and allow me to try this for ashort time. It's been a fantastic season for skateboarding. There Are at least three true SOTY contenders: Figgy, David, and Guy. I know whodo you think's gon na wind up with this decoration, although Figgy's your homie that is good? That's a hard one. It's almost like it is Too close to predict. This is just my opinion: I would say right now, if I had tochoose, it would be a 51-percent to 49-percent split... However, it'd still be Figgy. Nonetheless, it's difficult. It is nothands-down. David's a rad skater. He also fucking rips and railings are ripped by him! I enjoy the stuff Figgy skates, and I enjoyhis style, possibly more. I'm not saying his style isn't quite as great or David is not as great. He fucking kills it. I watch hisrole all the time and that I wish I could skate like him...

However, I still must proceed with Figgy. He skates the type of stuffthat I want to see. So far as Guy goes, I haven't seen his part. Perhaps I want to investigate, but his footage was kept kindasecret. It might be Mariano blows the rest from the water and that Pretty Sweet will come out, it's hands-down into The God! Butreally, it's so tough to pick, and that is good. You're right. It has been a great year for skating. Wow, when we've got threecontenders for SOTY. Things have been good. They may need to chop that trophy at half... this video is done, what's next? I thought I was going to find a break, but nope! Drew and Miner are already beginning on anEmerica video. There is even less than that, or six months. So we are going out and trying to get footage for that. It is a movie,but it may be that not everyone has a part that is full.

However there is going to be a few sprinkles shit. A bunch of the homiesare currently sitting on footage. Then it's time for Baker 4! They're already talking about it. Possibly early 2015, 2014. It's coming.RILEY HAWKHow would you break the news to your dad that you were riding for Baker? I met up with him one night And told him I had something. I was not sure he was gont require it. I asked him on all of it. He saidit's up to me, and I would need to follow my own path. He explained he knew eventually I would go on my own. Had you noticed Reynolds skate in person before The Baker trips? Yeah. I recall when he awakened for Birdhouse, Seeing him in the skatepark demos. Was Baker pretty much your only choice?I thought that I could ride For Baker until Slash and Figgy struck up me. But when they did, I was down.

Does a Baker trip and a Birdhouse differ Trip? Excursions are more scheduled. The Baker Ones are a lot more street-skate oriented. How'd the very first excursion with Baker go?We moved to SE. It was cool skating with Figgy and Dickson. I had skated with them and it was great to do that. Are you currently attempting to build your weed up Tolerance ahead of time? Not really, but I am pretty sure I have a sore Throat from the smoking in the van. Would you like the stoner van or the business van? I've never ridden in the business van.Do you drink alcohol?No, not actually.Have you ever?I am not that party, although I have before guy. A lot of my friends do and that is all and cool, it's just not. Was Black Sabbath your first tattoo?

Yeah. RILEY HAWK CONTINUEDDo you dig on Ozzy or strictly out the Dio stuff?No more Dio stuff. Strictly Ozzy.

Do you ever skip "Iron Man"?I like "Iron Man" a whole lot. Although It's the song most men and women understand as Black Sabbath, I like the solos. Prettymuch anything off that album is good. Is Sabbath your favourite group?Yeah, but when I had to pick something Present, it Earthless. Were your parents hanging out at all when you Showed them your first tattoo? I think I told him I and texted my dad Gonnedna receive one together with my two buddies. He was like, "Well, you're 18 now. Theonly advice I can give you is not to get one on your neck or face."

And I am definitely not going to have one on my neck or face. What is the title of your skate team?Shep Dawgs.Who would be the OG members?Maybe my friend Troy, aka "Tron" Rhodes. He's Lannie's younger brother and JT.

 He. He tried to spray-paint something in my wallsand he fucked up -- I think he tried to write Schralp Dogs but it came out Shep Dawgs. We started saying it like that. There is alot of us who skate and movie together. What is the scummiest degree of lodging You will sleep in?

As long as I've a blanket if it's cold, then It's all great. What for you? Probably the physician he's got in Encinitas. Whenever I get hurt, he will call him and then we get taken straight in through therear of the hospital. He checks me out, figures out what's wrong, and we get the recovery process started over the hour.

That ispretty nice. Do you remember your first skateboard?No, I do not. I remember riding around on My dad's, and at any stage he put me up among my own. How old were you when skateboarding turned into a Priority of yours? Young; 10 or 11 was when I began Skating of the time, going to materials and parks. Can you ever feel pressure to skate, or was it Just that the option was there? There was no pressure at all. My father was down To support me. RILEY HALK CONTINUEDWhat size board do you ride?Only an 8.5.1 was riding Indy 169s and an even Board, but it became too difficult to get those decks.

 You've had lots of bitchin' bank tricks. Is Road and that terrain your preferred? I like skating ditches a lot. They are super fun. These will be the most skatespots: inventories with ledges quarterpipes, on top.It is not fun if you damage your heels and leap down things. What about railings? SD's famous for them. Do you Ever get down? If I could locate a big rail that, I'd be psyched I could skate, but I have that anxiety that is rail-block. Talking of SD, you ever have any D3s?I don't think so, but I am pretty sure I wanted A set at the same point. Who's looking great for SOTY this past year?Probably Figgy. They played with a sneak preview of His part at the house of Nuge a couple weeks ago.

 It is crazy. How are you feeling about your part?I am fairly stoked--stoked that they're down to Utilize footage there is some things that Beagle filmed, and that my friend Jacobshot. I am psyched that I am able to be a part of it. Who would you ride for?Baker, Lakai, Spitfire, Quiksilver and Nixon. ANDREW REYNOLDSWhy did you need to perform Bake and Destroy with Thrasher in 1? I didn't really Consider the timeline of it. Figgy was skating really difficult and killing it and that I understood he was notgonna quit, so I needed to do something based about him--and then the rest of the team simply stepped up. I had a meeting andadvised everyone, "Let's see what we can do, and if it comes out like only a little promo, then trendy--Thrasher is going to behappy with that. And if it becomes a full-length I'm sure Thrasher is going to be happy with this too." Either way we seem great. What exactly did you wind up with?

It is definitely a Baker video, and it's Everyonesome over others. I'm just psyched to have a Baker video coming out that is goingto be liberated in Thrashe! I've watched you in action Through the Years, on These whatnot and tours. How would you describe your staff management style? Pretty laid back, I guess. I kind of look at It like if you're over 18, you are pretty much by yourself. I am not responsible forpeople going to jail and getting in trouble. That is their thing. Should they do this, then good. If get things done and they getup every day and want to skate all day, then that's even better.

That's awesome. You let people create their decisions?There's been times on excursions in my life where I have stated, "You know what? I'm just gonna drink beer all day and I am notgonna skate," and I am still a pro skater. So, whatever. That's alright if that is what they want to do this day. They simply needto know that if they keep up that, they're not likely to become a professional skater for this long. Can you ever kick at off someone? Have you ever? There's been a few times when I had To allow some people go. It stinks! At the time the job is to skate challenging, although itis dreadful, because they're your buddies and it's not something that anybody would really need to perform.

That is pretty muchit, if you are not. That is the most important thing. It's possible to just let this go on for so long once it's not about skatinganymore. How long can you let that go for? Annually?I'd say three to five, based on who Your boss is. Pretend I am this person. Give the news to me.Well, there would have been several Discussions before getting kicked off, like, "Hey, you need to do a bit more." There probablywould have been this conversation every six months for the last two years, and you would have known that it came. So that they see it coming?I don't understand. Maybe. It hasn't happened enough Days for me. Many people have been on Baker the time.

All these children want to become on Baker. How do You select? It's worked in the past, like with CJ or Dee or even Mike White, is that first of all, they're great on a skateboard. You makethem come out and skate with everyone. What I have noticed is that usually they're already fans of Baker. They like what it isabout and they have usually been lovers since they were children. The kid who's all seriously interested in his contest skatingalong with his Mountain Dew stickers, that kid doesn't generally like Baker. Those children aren't the same as CJ or Dee. They aredifferent kinds of kids. Then we take them and they get along With everyone, and Figgy and Herm and Braydon are looking at me like, "Man, this kid is theshit! He's super cool! He stinks!"

And I'm like, "Great. Let's hook up him." Could a skater blow it by being overly eager?Not really. I have been on trips with CJ at which He's been out of the van and doing 20 tricks before anyone else measures. Thatexcited! But that is just his character. We do not look at it as if he's a show-off. He'd be doing that whether we had been not orthere. He's just eager to leap shit off and kill it. He wants to do something interesting. It just all depends upon how it's done. Did you talk about Riley to the Birdman?Me and Herman saw him and, at a Zumiez thing We told him we'd like to talk about Riley to him. We told Tony we desired to takehim. Before that, Slash and Figgy was telling me, "We ought to really speak to Riley. His skating is amazing.

He's getting supergood and he's awesome." Tony just said, "You know what? Riley's been killing it and it's totally up to him." I look at it thisway: It has gotta be hard if your daddy is Tony Hawk. If my father owned a skateboard company and that I snapped for this, I couldbe thinking, "Am I riding for this because it is my dad's companion, or am I riding to it since my skating is up to par?" So Ithink it's really great for him to be with a group of skaters that want to venture out and do exactly the things that he can, andthat admire his skill. I believe it was a move that is good and I don't think there's any hard feelings on Tony's part. I think Iam really liked by Tony. He got you into the game, right?Yeah. He's one of my greatest role models, Because I've seen the way he operates. Basically it is "Shut up and just skate and keepon killing it." There is not any complaining. It does not exist. I was quite pleased when I watched an interview with him recentlywhere he was talking about me and he said, "Andrew goes on tour for a kid and skate hard every day rather than complain about athing." I was like, "Shit. I'm gonna keep doing that, forever."

And I'm gonna as I can pass this on to as many individuals. 'CauseI've got guys on the staff who do the exact thing. It may be the worst situation ever--worst hotel, no meals, and some people havea smile in their face. They are thinking, "I do not care where I Am right now. I am with some cool folks and I expect to travel due to my skateboard." SoI heard that from him. Don't whine and appreciate what you have. Show up at the demo and do your job. That's what you're paid for. You are really easy on and going Borderline neurotic, the hand, particularly in regards to cleaning and organizing items. I haveseen you clean up a parking lot that was filthy before. Why do you do that? I need to do that to maintain the part that is laid-back. I need to keep things orderly. Today I went through the entire home andeliminate 75-percent of those kitchen utensils which never get touched. Stella's room cleaned. I don't need any unnecessary shit.

So I pack up it and take it to Goodwill or that I place it in the trash. In our Contents, you did so Caballerial Down the triple set and touched your palms on the ground, and you don't wish to goback--which is odd for you. Have you developed complacent with your suggestion perfection? No, I'm gonna return. I didn't use it video! Well that answers that.Yeah, I could not do it. I watched it a few Times and that I gotta go back. So if we don't use the sequence?No, use it! Use it!OK. Great. You have been speaking about being old A lot recently. Do you feel older? I just joke about. I feel good. I feel Good on my skateboard. I'm healthy. When everyone is 21, then I'm older. I'm older than theexpert skater these days. That is a fact. I'm not old just like a guy, but when I'm around the men, like I'm, I like to joke. We offered to put some of Destroy and those Bake Video parts online, but you wanted it to become DVD-only.

What is it about a DVDwhich you prefer? Since we take a lot of pride in Baker as a team. Everybody is pleased to be on Baker. We've got Baker tattoos. So I asked around,and everybody was like, "Nah. It should be all of us collectively. It ought to be one thing." I agree. That is cool if you wan naset a free download to the Thrasher site, after the DVD comes out. Can it be satisfying to see Theotis?I like that. I like that a lot.Are there ever times you begin dreaming about Cracking a cold one? It may cross my mind every now and then. But Following 10 decades of sobriety, you figure out that there is no such thing like mecracking one one. 1 can of beer? Who wants one can of beer? It doesn't make sense. I'd rather have one cold glass of water.

Are you gonna have a board out for so long as Cab? Yeah. I look it at like how you can get a Jordan shoe. You can still get, though he is not playing a game anymore The shoe, andyou will. Check out Cardiel. He can't really skate anymore There has got ta be a Cardiel plank, although after what occurred, youknow? I guess As long as Baker exists, I'm gonna have a board. Unless and is called by each store Says that they don't want aReynolds board; that it can't be sold by them. Until then, I'm Gonna possess one.
