I expected this interview to be boring as hell. Interviewing the younger dudes usually is – they are on the come up, don’t wanna say anything “wrong” and don’t have the stories or tales that a seasoned vet has. They just want to make their sponsors happy, get some more coverage and go on their merry way. I was pleasantly surprised. Not just that Kevin was willing to open up and talk about anything, but he wasn’t afraid to go into detail and had some brutally honest things to say. I’m stoked that we still have personalities like his in skateboarding that aren’t afraid to speak their mind and haven’t watered themselves down for the masses. If you are interested in seeing the industry through Kevin’s eyes, check out his story on Jenkem.
