I'd like to date, but I'm not really in a position to meet girls.

Some suggestions for you :

I wear black skinny-fit jeans - I can't get away from them. It's funny because I wore baggy jeans for ages, then one day my friend convinced me to try on a skinny pair and I thought they were great.

The boarding I do is pretty strenuous and because I'm so active I really don't have to work out too often.

I don't think the sport is any more dangerous than it's ever been.

My dad, he's the rocker.

I think everybody can agree that you can hear a certain song and it will put you in a certain mood, and that's just the beauty of music and I am so inspired by that.

If you think I've got a lot of sponsors, you should see the stuff I turn down.

What drives me now is the fact that I feel like I still have so many tricks that I want to learn and so many things that I can still do. And so many cool things outside of sports that I have been doing.

I don't know, I think, in times where I'm really nervous, and I'm really under the pressure the worst possible outcome is for me to start thinking about it. I just do.

Skateboarding helps a ton with balance, precision, with air awareness... it gets your senses to be spot-on and it's also a great way to take my mind off things.

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 don't know where my first gold medal is.

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.

Boards and myself get along somehow.

I totally forget about snowboarding in the summertime.
