RH-How long have you been skating?
BP-This year marks 10 years of skating for me; a decade of shred!
RH-Where are you from?
BP-Connecticut born and raised: born in Hartford, spent my early years in Old Saybrook and grew up in West Hartford.
RH-Who do you ride for?
BP-Paris Truck Co, Comet Skateboards, Sector 9 wheels, Venom bushings, and now Cutting Edge skate shop
RH-If you were a fish what kind would you be?
BP-Whichever fish has the biggest mouth.
RH-What is your current setup that you are riding?
BP-For downhill I've been rocking an Ethos 40 by Comet on Paris V2 180's (purple Venom barrels) with whatever 70mm Sector 9 wheels I'm feeling at the time.
RH-What style of skating do you prefer?
BP-Cruising, carving, flowing, slashing and sliding. Going really fast only does it for me on certain hills these days.
RH-What has been your favorite place to ride?
BP-I've been thinking about this one for almost 10 minutes and it is way too tough to pick just one. Tie between Socal, Norcal, Vancouver, Albuquerque, and Hawaii.
RH-What was your wildest bail?
BP-Probably breaking my ankle. The bail itself wasn't anything wild, I pretty much just stepped off my board in a bowl and put all my weight into my foot at a bad angle... But it sucked to not walk for 3 months/not skate for 6.
