Since the time Damon Franklin and I began drafting up this interview late last year things have changed for the better. He went from Xsjado to USD…he just dropped a great edit with Erick Rodriguez showcasing his street skills…and he is traveling much more to blade as much as possible thus increasing his exposure. Instead of scrapping the interview and starting over we decided to keep some of the old and mix it with the new. The result is a look into the mind of a young blader with a hunger for progression.

At a time when I was going through a personal dark period without a pair of blades to call my own, Sam reached out to me offering me blades not even knowing me all that well. That is a testimony to his generous character. While working on this interview I learned a lot about Sam DeAngelis through his detailed answers making this one of my favorite interviews that I have ever done for ShutupandSKATE. He definitely deserves all the exposure that is coming his way and I would like to wish him the best on his current trip to Africa with the Spine Africa Project.
I woke up to a beautiful NYC day filled with sunshine, light clouds and most importantly no humidity! So, once my son woke up I took him out for a day of play with his skates. We ended up going to Coleman Skatepark and here are a baker’s dozen worth of pics chronicling our day.
My son made his Youtube debut on the Dave & Ethan Online Comedy Show. They asked him advice about women and he gave answers that only a 4 year old can. He started a movement with a simple suggestion…”The Slide” haha. The whole video is pretty funny so enjoy.
