At what age did you begin skateboarding Abdias?
I think I was 11 or 12, around that time.
How did riding for Skate Park of Tampa help your skateboarding career take off?
Well skating there when I was younger helped, than they sponsored me and entered me in a Tampa am contest and from that it also helped me a lot.
Do you still see and talk to your friends out in Florida a lot? How often do you try to go out there?
Yeah I talk to my friends all the time. Sometimes some of them come out and visit too. I go back every couple of months and visit for a week or two.
Now you ride for Foundation and Circa and have come along way since living in Tampa, where have some of your favorite places you’ve traveled to been?
All the places I’ve been have been sick but I must say Russia is definitely one of my favorites. I’ve been there twice and would definitely want to go again.
Where have you still not gone that you really want too? This might be a good time to hint at trip destinations so your sponsors take notice.
I want to go to china. I’ve never been but hopefully get to go soon.
Who’s your favorite person to room with on Foundation trips and why?
I don’t know it's usually me, David, and Angel but I get along with everyone so it doesn't matter.
Who’s your favorite person to room with on Circa trips and why?
Well it’s the same as foundation trips, it's whoever, I get along with everyone.

Who is in your usual day-to-day skate crew?
