BM: WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO THE WEST COAST?

CH: I’m from Gillespie, Illinois where we have cold ass winters and ridiculous heat during the summers. Opportunity brought me here. As cliche as it sounds, the timing was as perfect as it was going to get. I was skating the finals of the Hometown Heroes contest series out here and one of my old homies from Illinois offered me a place to stay in SD until I could figure shit out. Now he’s my neighbor!

BW: WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT SKATING IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FROM WHERE YOU GREW UP, DO YOU MISS THE WINTERS?

CH: During homecoming week at our school we had a “Bring your tractor to school” themed day. Does that tell you anything about where I’m from? I’m hyped on it though. I’m just glad I picked up a skateboard. If not I’d still be there, most likely still living with my parents working a dead end job. Now, I live in SD and work a sick job at Coca-Cola. Oh yea, fuck the winters.

BW: YOU RECENTLY HAD A BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, HOWS THAT GOING FOR YOU?

CH: Dude, it’s the sickest thing ever. It’s definitely a reality check though. She’s the only thing keeping me sane while I rehab this knee injury.  Madison Lynn will be a year old on September 27th!

BW: DESCRIBE YOUR FIRST MEMORY OF SKATEBOARDING?

CH: This house burned down on our block when I first started skating. So we built our own ramps on the leftover driveway and skated them for a few months until the city shut us down. Good times!

BW: ANY THANKS YOUS OR SHOUT-OUTS?

CH: I’m going to miss someone. It’s bound to happen. Casey Otto, Al from Character, Dave Morrison for making me move out here, Corey and all the Active homies, team BK, Cope at Neff, Theeve Trucks, the BROKE homies, and YOU! Thanks for everything!

John Motta Easter Egg

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Skate Mental has taken the release of a pro introduction part for John Motta in a totally different direction. Hiding a link to all of his unedited footage on their site, the first person to find it basically was given the opportunity to do whatever they liked with it. It is only fitting that the person that found and edited it would go by the title Easter Bunny. Enjoy and congrats John!
