I just do what feels right

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

We just posted an interview with Chicago skateboarder, Andy Sisomboune. Check out the interview, photos and video here.

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

JC: Where are you from originally and how long have you been skateboarding?
AS: I am originally from Elgin, IL. Which is just a suburb northwest of Chicago.
JC: What’s your first memory of skateboarding?

AS: My older sister Emily used to be a tom boy and she got her first skateboard when she was in the 7th grade. As soon as she got home with it we were trying to learn how to skate in my driveway. Somehow I was lucky enough to figure out how to Ollie with out really knowing what I was doing. Just trying to pop the tail and leaning forward. And it’s been history ever since.

JC: How would you describe skateboarding to someone who has never seen it before?

AS: I never try to describe skateboarding. It’s impossible to know the feeling unless you actually skate (just to skate, not for bullshit reasons like fame and money).

JC: Do you love skateboarding and what does it mean to you?

AS: I do…but I don’t, because loving skateboarding sounds corny. Skateboarding to me is always having the same feeling I did when I was a tyke learning to rock fakie the quarterpipe my friends and I built with scrap wood we found. As I’m getting older, skateboarding is what makes me feel like a kid again.

JC: Who or what inspires your skating and your day to day living?

AS: I just do what feels right. What inspires me is starting my day by waking up, brewing up a cup of Philz’s, having a cigarette on my stoop on a sunny, beautiful day. Then letting whatever happens, happen.

JC: Is there anything outside of skateboarding that you do? Any other hobbies?

AS: I want to say girls but it would be a lie because there’s not much “doing” when it comes to them.

JC: Is there anything that actually scares you in life?

AS: Getting roofied and waking up as part of a human centipede. Other than that, just not being able to skate is a horrid thought.

JC: Where do you hope that riding a skateboard will take you?

AS: The corner store, the shop, the bar, another state, another country, another continent…pretty much I want riding a skateboard to take me all over the world.

JC: Top 3 skateboarders and why?

AS: Busenitz because he is the definition of a real skateboarder. Stephen Perdue because he’s the golden child and the best homie. And Paul Zdon because he’s the master of all trades and can 5-0 any round bar.

JC: Any words of wisdom or words of advice that you would like to share?

AS: “You know I would love to tap dat ass. I would tear dat ass uuupppp. But I can’t let you in because you old as fuck…for this club. Not, ya know…for the Earth.”

JC: Any thank you’s?

AS: All the homies, the Good Ol’s, DBN, Moontower, The Downtown Struts for giving me shelter from SF back to Chicago. Uriah and everyone else at Uprise. Steve Davenport at YEAH because he runs it in the burbs everyday by himself and still kills it. Chad at Alien Workshop and anyone else who has ever helped me out.

Street Canoe would like to send out and extra thanks to Andy, Kevin Penzach, Eric Palozzola and Pat Shore.
Skate Fast, Die Old.
