Austin Thomas Web Interview

We decided it would be fun to give our newest team rider a web interview. Enjoy! Austin rules!

What have you been doing all winter?
A whole lotta nothing and skating whenever I get a chance

How dd you feel about your Time Change part?
I was stoked on it but I really wanted more, different footage. This year will be interesting

Was this your first part?
Actually no haha I had a part in a Kenora video called Party On Wheels.. It was dope.

What was your worst sk8 team memory?
I'd have to say that time when we drove up to Flin Flon and ran out of gas halfway, I mean I know we got saved and all but that whole situation just sucked.

Who had your favorite footage in Times Change?
Cole and Cain

Who do you want on the team next?
Mitch Butler or Nate, and K-Zimmerman

The love in the fam

You're the youngest one on the team so I'm gonna give you some Sk8 team trivia:

Who's the oldest person on the team right now?
Mitch Lavoie

I thin Bill Acheson is older. What year did sk8 open?

I think 1989

Are you kidding me? It's 87, you know the giant number on the shop decks? Name two pro's that rode for sk8?


Jake Stuart, Mason Cornwell and I think Steve Harnish was pro for Venture but I really don't know. Which two team members got on the same day?

No idea man

Pat and Tyler same day, Kyle and Jesse same day. Name all five sk8 skates videos?

Love Life, Chapter One, Third Try, ...fuck I completely forgot the name, and Times Change.. Still can't remember that video before it but I know Gaucher had the ender

Shred is the one with Gaucher. Love Life isn't a Sk8 Skates video and you forgot Introduction. How many nails on the Sk8 flag?

The majority I'd say.

There's eight, come on Austin you can do this. Name 3 Sk8 team riders that haven't been in a magazine?

I'm the only one I can think of, how embarrassing.

Your score is embarrassing. You, Millar and Kyle. Cole had a portrait but no skate
