Surfers have the most attitude.
I'm proud of the U.S.A. We've done some amazing things. To wear our flag in the Olympics is an honor.
You know the best thing about competition? There's this whole strategy game, and when it all works out its like solving that hard math equation. You finally get the answer and you're so happy.
I think guitar is the best thing in the world.
I'm really disappointed at every event if I don't do less than what I wanted to do.
Usually the thing that signifies that I'm done with the winter and all that is that I start skateboarding.
The hardest thing about skateboarding is consistency: The slightest flick of your foot or gust of wind can send your board flying, so it's really anybody's game out there.
I've reached my goal with snowboarding.
I trip walking down the stairs, but I can skate them probably.
When you think about it, we're strapping strange planks of wood to our feet and launching off of giant snow walls. It's pretty intense.
There are plenty of skills I've learned from playing video games. It's more interactive than watching TV, because there are problems to solve as you're using your brain.
I've always been under the impression that it would be such a bummer to be in a peaceful place like Hawaii or the tropics and be stressed about catching waves.
I couldn't do my homework if my room wasn't clean. And it has carried on now that I am older, in a very freakish way.
You have to be prepared to take a spill.
Skateboarding is training, but I don't think of it as training. It's fun.
You can only jump so far until you break your leg. You can only land so hard until something explodes.
Cement doesn't give as much as snow.
If you're going off a 90-foot jump, you can't say: 'Oh, I don't want to do this now.' You're going no matter what.
I personally think skateboarding is harder because it has so many moving parts. With snowboarding, your feet are strapped to your board.
I am a pretty recognizable, like, I walk through the airport or something, you are going to spot me right away.
