Vor kurzer Zeit noch Baker Newcomer, mittlerweile ist dort bereits eine Riege Jüngerer nachgerückt und Tristan Funkhouser ist längst zum gestandenen Pro geworden. Neulich erst hat er seinen DC Schuh veröffentlicht und kurz darauf war er mit den DC Kollegen in Deutschland zu Besuch. Wir haben ihn in Berlin an den Bänken getroffen und etwas rumgealbert.
„Milkmen Stomp“ by The Dead Milkmen. You should give it a listen. [Tiago’s board crashes into Tristan] can’t handle the board man. [laughs]
No. Not really.
Fuck yeah! I love a good rocket flip. Fuck mongo!
I’d tag on every wall I could. I don’t really consider myself a fucking tagger or something. I don’t really do too much but I just have fun with spray paint… tons of spray paint.
A lot of people are nice man. Off the top of my head I can’t really remember. Yeah, a lot of beers this trip.
Shit man, that’s a though one. There is a lot of people I would like to meet and shit. It would be sick to meet David Bowie.
You ever seen „Lilo & Stitch“? I would probably be Stitch. [laughing] Or I would be Donny, the crazy kid from „The Wild Thornberrys“. You know that TV Show? Or I would be down to be like Pikachu or some shit.
"I was eight years old, jumping off of fucking 30 foot drops into airbags and shit like that."
I like my first name but if I had to change it to anything…
[laughing] Yeah something fucked up. Probably be Herbert. I don’t know.
Yeah, there is not too many Herberts.
Fuck man. Chantel Jeffreys for sure man. She is hot as hell.
She just does the IG model and DJ shit. I don’t really know too much about her but she looks fine.
I don’t know I kinda suck at everything. [laughs] Oh you know I used to do fucking do stunt work when I was a little kid. I only did one commercial but I was eight years old, jumping off of fucking 30 foot drops into airbags and shit like that. I used to do that because my parents were both into that business. They were booked for stunt work and shit. Mostly my mom but yeah they tried to get me into it but I was like „fuck that… I’m tryna skate“.
Probably be able to do a loop or like fucking hit the mega ramp or some shit. It could be any trick as long as I can get it over that I would be fucking hyped.
Kinda just wanted to be a skater. As soon as I started skating that was it. I kinda was into baseball and shit when I was hella little but I got over that too. Skating just stuck.
Fucking Andrew Reynolds.
Probably soggy money from a kid at a signing. Like a really soggy Peso. I think we were in Mexico.
[laughs] I don’t know like every couple of days.
Dude I’ll brake my phone right now. I don’t care. But I can’t.
Yeah. It sucks. The damn days we live in. Everything is on your phone. Like all your information. Back in the day it wasn’t like that. Now you have all your bank information shit like that own your phone. If you loose your phone it’s fucking scary.
"Dude I’ll brake my phone right now. I don’t care."
This one time we were in Costa Rica and we fucking hiked through this jungle for four hours and then we ended up on this fucking perfect fucking beach with black sand and then we ended upon going on a boat ride to get back. And we were in these pretty much plastic fishing boats going against all these fucking huge ass waves. It was crazy but so sick. Yeah man.
Science. I was never really good at math or any of that shit but I was pretty good with science and history.
Shout out to Matt V. He is the homie from back home. A lot of the kids have probably seen him in my Instagram story. [laugh]
I had this fucked up shit on my foot. Like all summer that was keeping me from skating. It was horrible.
I think I was at home.
Definitely ice cream. That „Chunky Monkey - Ben & Jerry’s“ is really good.
"The Outsiders". I read it in school. I don’t really read a lot. [laughs]
Hopefully still skating man. I don’t know. Hopefully I live in a house with a pool in ten years.
It’s hot as fuck in LA.
