How is the scene in Spain? UP

How do you come up with ideas for tricks? I think new tricks just appear if you ride often enough and if you are having fun while riding. But lately I’m taking more time on thinking more about concepts, styles and ways to build the combos. Sometimes from all this thinking I realise that for “this concept” it would be awesome to be able to do “this trick” so I go and learn it for the sake of the concept. ((((My favorite answer : by Dub))))

Questions coming from Tyler :

What is your favorite scene outside of Spain? Japan and France, but there are a lot of scenes I have no idea about them so….

What happened to the freecoaster wheel martti gave you? Hahahaha, somewhere at home.

How do the mic pegs help you? As an non sponsored by a shoe company rider this pegs make me save a lot of money since almost all the new tricks I’m learning are pivots.  XD (((WOosh))

Space travel or deep sea exploration? Space travel.

Questions coming from Joris :

When did you start riding in Slow Motion?

When I started riding I use to learn tricks going a bit slow. I thought it was more difficult so whenever I wanted to speed up it would be easier. BUT! Slomotion as style of riding it came with this hook tricks where I grab the bike with my foot, the only way I found to hold this tricks longer is to slow down, otherwise I would Gturn.

How many languages do you speak? 3, English, French and Spanish. I can say silly things in many more.

What made you start riding flatland? I got a BMX bike cuz I saw this X-games 2003 on TV, but I started doing street. I quit and a couple of years later while playing basketball I met Guelo and Garnacho. They taught me the joy of learning tricks. Thanks!
