You can find him in the van with Uncle Morri or in LA sipping on a 40.

Top Fives: Sean Bone

Frontside blunt, Auckland.

Reasons to focus your board
1. Once my tee gets sweat from the neck to the bottom seam
2. I usually quit skating mentally before I focus, like why would I need this, I don’t skate?
3. The old ‘finally land’ focus is a good one, not even happy to land, just glad to stop trying
4. When a board comes out while pissed she won’t last long
5. Looks at me funny

1. Dad aka Tall aka Ass Stain aka Aston Hooker
2. Ayrton Boot
3. Ross Emery
4. Jamesons aka James Marson
5. The whole of the SitDownClub kill it

Things about your recent trip to LA
1. Lenard Tejada landing anything we told him to do

Best things about benihanas
1. Girls froth on a man that splits his legs
2. Makes a super cool photo
3. Dicksquad will give you a gram, shoutout

Thing about going on trips with Rhys Campbell and Morri
1. Beers before 2pm
2. They talk shit on one another like an old married couple, very good to listen to
3. Never knowing if Rhys is serious when he says that was cool
4. They still skate hard and get the hammers
5. Uncle Mozza’s never-been-skated spots are a good old laugh. There’s always a reason it hasn’t been skated
