Years spent on a skateboard: Enough that I should probably be winning the men's class by now... I'll settle for womens' though
Best Place you've skated and what was it like: Giants Head. It was like strawberries with honey and man sized pre-drifts.
Craziest place you want to skate: South America should be freaking Radical!!! I can't wait to go there! Your freeride set up: Today, I'm on a chopped 9two5 (10two4, Monday to Thursday, Tuesday to Friday?!) Bear 852, White Zombies or Blue Mini Monsters. We'll see about tomorrow. I love skateboards!!!!!!!!
Your Race set up: I want a small switchblade. They don't exist. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Really though, depends on the course. I like drop through boards so I'll probably ride my chopped 9two5. Ideally, I like to use the same set up for everything.
How you got into Longboarding: I was skating in North Van a lot 4 years ago and when the rain came, it was time to go indoors. Luckily, we had an indoor at LBC, and it was there that I first discovered longboarding. A Landyachtz Evo was the first board I ever went down a hill on...
Your greatest accomplishment in Longboarding: I won Newtons Nation in Australia last year (2010), super cool cause it was my main competitors ?last race'. My next biggest accomplishment will come when I can talk her out of ?retirement'. Big ass stand up slides and toe side pre drifts also qualify for great accomplishments...
What is the most elaborate thing you have ever built: I build a lot of stuff. I am very, very crafty and it's a gene that runs in my family. I bet you the most ?elaborate' thing was probably something completely useless to everyone but me.
What is your favorite meal to cook and how do you make it: Oh my. Dinner is my favorite meal to cook. I can't give you a specific, but I'll give you a recipe, sure! PARMESAN CHICKEN DELICIOUSNESS!!!! Step 1: get chicken breast for x amount of people, parmesan cheese, marinara (or any) pasta sauce, bread crumbs, egg, and enough pasta for whoever your cooking for. You will need a baking dish. Step 2: wash your hands, you dirty skateboarder Step 3: Pre Heat the oven to 350 Degrees, boil a pot of water, and get a pan hot with mid-high heat. Step 3: Crack the egg on a plate and beat the crap out of it Step 4: cover a chicken breast in egg and coat it with bread crumbs...use a heavy hand and make sure you get the whole thing covered. Repeat as nessesary for however many chicken breasts you have... Step 5: in your Hot pan, with a bit of oil in it, brown the bread crumbs on both sides of the chicken and then move them to the baking pan. Step 6: Your water should be boiling by now, get your pasta in it Step 7: When all your browned (raw) chicken breasts are done and in the baking pan, crack that jar or two of pasta sauce and fill the baking pan till the chicken is straight up hiding...cover with parmesan cheese and pop it in the oven. Step 8: Bake at 350 for approx. 25mins. Step 9: When its all done, light a candle, put pasta on the plate and the chicken in sauce on top...not that hard. Step 10: Tell all your friends Skatie Katie just made you a bad ass dinner
