Currently live: I live in a small town in the south east of England called Ashford.

Favorite spot to skate: My favorite spot to skate is south bank. Long live sb!

Favorite country: My favorite country to skate that I have been to is Spain. There are so many hidden spots that are amazing all over Spain. I want to travel as much as possible and have the chance to skate new and differents street spots.

First board: I think the first board I got was a birdhouse Andrew Reynolds grim ripper board. I don't remember what trucks or wheels I had.

What motivates me to skate:  What motivates me to skate is going out and having fun with your mates. Seeing new tricks or just mucking around have fun, even just warming up at a spot with your mates is a laugh haha...

Warm ups: I try to get some stretch in before a skate. Just get the blood flowing. I normally forget to warm down after would haha...

Side tracks: Due to injury and largely boredom over the last year I have been learning the trumpet, which seems to sidetrack me a lot sometimes.

Videos/movies: A new video I have seen this year is Cold War by Zero. But my favorite one is still Alien Workshop by Mind Field.

Best style: That's an hard one to pick man! I guess it's between Heath Kirchart and Dennis Busenitz. They both go so fast, it is sick!

Random information: I have a good friend haha and life time pet bert the talking African gray parrot

Favorite Volcom jeans/pants: Chino pants! So good for skating in.

One thing you can't leave home without:  My headphones. There is nothing worse then been stuck on a plane with crying babys or snoring people haha...

Special thanks: Skateboarding! To my family and friends. And a big thanks to Volcom and Christian.

VOLCOM EUROPE IN JAPAN
Photos by Jelle Keppens Who hasn’t thought about skating in Japan? Its people are very welcoming and respectful – and their skateboarders are like Samurai warriors. Our international squad was made up of Basque Country rippers Alain Goikoetxea, Dani Lopez de Ipiña and Alain Saavedra, Eniz Fazliov from Finland, and Axel Cruysberghs of Belgium. Together, they converged on Japan to explore the cities and countryside of the land of cherry blossoms. Our friends from Volcom Japan were expecting us, and were nice enough to show us the best spots Tokyo had to offer. Some were quite famous and had been documented many times, but others were totally unknown – and incredible. The city of Tokyo is home to some 13 million people, divided among 23 neighbourhoods, and the spot possibilities are infinite. Shibuya is one of the boroughs with the most spots. You head there, stroll around and the spots just pop up. It is good to go here at night since the lights from the buildings illuminate the whole place. Naturally, Goikoetxea destroyed every transition that got in his way, while Cruysberghs ground waist-high fences. Saavedra and Dani Lopez are free spirits who skated some of the most unexpected spots we encountered. After skating all day, these two would come down to the streets to check out nearby spots and skate more. Fazliov dominated as ever with his unique mix of power and grace- combined with his creative eye for unorthodox spots. Thanks to Saito, Buchi, Joji, Iceman and all the Volcom Japan crew.
