Full name?

Sean William Spees

How long have you been skating?

Downhill for 2 and a half, street a while longer

What got you started?

My friend and I both bought these garbage ‘moose’ pintails off ebay for 30 dollars, one day at cross country practice Martin Carmody asked what a scar I had was from. We’ve been skating together almost every day since, and we got Jordan into it a few months later.

Education: past, present, and future?

Graduating from Bishop O’Dowd Highschool this year, hopefully I’ll be at Pomona College (not the csu) next year. I hear there’s some Great Mountain Roads in the area.

What stokes you out the most?

Being on a board, it can be hauling ass or just dicking around.

What is your favorite board company?

That’s a tossup, I was raised on the berkely hills so I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for comet decks, but it’s crazy how many companies have got it figured out now and are taking things in new directions. I think the question now is what company DOESN’T make a dope topmount.

What is your favorite truck company?

Mu’fuckin calibers.

What is your favorite wheel company?

Cult Wheels! Not just saying that either, ever since I started skating I’d buy a set of classics when I had the money.

What is your favorite bearing company?

Magic Bearings, rep it local

Best shoes for longboarding?

Airspeed, 5 dollars a pair is the best

Favorite longboarding event and why?

Menlo was insane this year but I’m too stoked for Giants Head next summer.

Love a good soup or a burrito from any divey taqueria.
