If you were not a skater, what would you be?
I wanted to be a soccer player when I was little. I played in Real Madrid and had fun. Those were good times!
But you are, so please tell when and why did you start skating?
At my first day of high school I saw everybody with skateboards instead of a soccer ball, so I was curious about it and I asked someone to show me how to skate.
When did you know a pro skater is what you wanted to be?
I knew it when I started to enjoy skating more and I saw myself progressing thanks to friends, sponsors, videos, magazines and family. Without them this wouldn’t be possible!
Greatest accomplishment as a skateboarder?
Every day I have accomplished something new, but my biggest accomplishments are magazine and video features.
Best skateboarding memory?
Plaza de Colon and the whole atmosphere of skating there – the youth and all the fun in that place until it ended. That was the temple of skateboarding at the time. Siempre in memory.
One word to describe skateboarding?
If we asked your best friends to describe you with 3 words, what would those words be? Fun, mysterious and responsible
What is the longest time you haven’t been on your skateboard?
What kind of question is that!?
What are you doing when you are not on a skateboard?
I take care of my boys.
How many travel days do you get in a year?
It depends on the competitions along the year…
How was your 2014?
It was my best year of skateboarding thanks to getting good competition results and staying focused.
What’s going down in 2015?
Hopefully this year will be even better thanks to Battery Energy Drink’s support. I want to keep myself going forward!
What “keeps you going”, on top of Battery energy drinks of course?
There are so many spots, tricks and things to do! I don’t have enough time in this life!
Which is your favorite Battery Energy Drink?
Battery Hydro is my favorite! It is great for athletes. In my free time I also enjoy Battery Original or Cranberry Juiced.
Thank you so much for the support Battery and cheers to my whole family, my children, friends and sponsors who make it possible to enjoy skating. Thanks for everything!
