For parks it’s Catalyst with 169 Indies rolling on Rayne 62mm 98a Envies Longboard wise I’m on Vandal with bent Aera K3’s with either Orangatangs or Rayne Wheels
Race or Freeride, Why?
Skate with your buddies, sometimes races are the only places you get to skate with some people. If that’s the case, then you gotta race. Can still treat it like a free ride though!
A while back
With Rayne Since
2010, a big thank you to them!
So many. In North America I would say Cathlamet. GET THERE! In Europe Verdiccio was by far the best race, probably the best race anywhere in the world come to think of it. All of ASRA’s races are primo too!
Depends where I am. I try not to have to much spare time.
Don’t be an asshole. Do be good to everyone and if that is sometimes hard, at least be patient with them. It all comes back around eventually.
Walking through a pitch black train tunnel with my old buddy Rob. Got to the middle, so dark you couldn’t even see your hand in front of your face. We hear a train coming… Both of us screaming and running through this tunnel, falling over rocks, running into walls, tripping over tracks. Finally we see the light at the end. Keep running, Rob falls and hurts his foot, I run nose first into the brick wall of the tunnel. Dive out of the tunnel and off the tracks into a ditch full of cold, dirty water crawling with mosquito lava. Realise it was an aeroplane flying over head, not a train at all.
If you had a time machine, when would you be?
One Animal, Why?
Dogs because they can become your best friend instantly.
Julia Jansson, Ethan Lau, Nellie Anderson, Les Robertson, Mischa Chandler, Mitch Downey, Aidan Lynds, Tommy Watson, Justin Readings, Adam Roguljić, Janne Lehtinen, Jonno Shakesby, Striker, Judy Edmondson, Ali Johnson, Karl Järnström, Leigh Griffiths, Michael ‘Broditch’ Bowditch, Sean at Daily Grind… There are hundreds and hundreds of names I want to write. To anyone who has ever shown me kindness, let me into their homes, taken me skating, eaten with me, stayed with me. You all know what you did for me, many thanks!
Claudio adds more grey hair to the Rayne family than we had ever anticipated growing ourselves. A veteran of the Mexican scene, Claudio has helped bring the gift of skate to communities up and down the coast for a few years now. Unlike Santa however, Claudio can't just get a few reindeer to help him slay hills, so when he's not behind a computer or a camera, he's still on top of his deck taking little trips to fun-ville.
