So how long have you been rocking the freecoaster for? Are you hooked?
I've been using the freecoaster since the fall of '08. I'm psyched on it. I used to use one back in the day so it's kind of a throwback for me. I'll use it until it breaks, then I'll probably put a regular wheel back on.

If you measured out all the grinds you've done in your life, how long do you think the ledge would be?
Probably from Boston to L.A.

So what else is up? I've seen a bunch of your clips for the Animal video, your part is shaping up to be a wild one.
[Laughs] I don't know if I'd say that. I've just been in one of those cycles where I'm riding a lot and enjoying it, and it happens to be during the filming of the video.

Who's section are you looking forward to see the most?
Oh man, I can't single out anyone. I love to watch anyone on the team ride, but it will be nice to see another part from Ralph [Sinisi].
