Filming this edit with Geoff Phillip made me realize how much this dude loves rollerblading. Before I met him I kind of had my doubts about him when it came to the idea of him being pro for any company. Now that I met him and filmed with him I can honestly say he definitely deserves to be a full on professional. He works super hard at getting footage, super nice dude and he loves rollerblading possibly more than I do which I didn’t think was possible. I had such a great time filming this man and I only hope it happens again. Anyways I hope you all enjoy this edit and be sure to check out all his other work. Here’s a quick interview I did with him.
1. I want to know why you chose SLC as part of the QYLT and how do you think your trip went?
I had always planned on doing a QYLT part in Salt Lake just because I always have fun when I’m in town. My loosely scheduled trip plans happened to coincide perfectly with Mykel Fatali driving to Utah for turkey day, so I hopped in the car and had my Thanksgiving at the 10540! The trip went fantastic! Except for the snow of course.
2. While filming for this part who were some of your favorite people to go out with and get footage. Anyone in particular you were juiced on being able to go skate with daily?
Of course my main dudes Tad Tregeagle and Chris Napolean are always a pleasure to shred with. All the boys get my hyped though, it’s always just great to have homies to skate with in the first place. Even Egbert showed up to blade with me, even though it was the end of the night and I was fully incapacitated at the time. I always feel at home in SLC.
3. Obviously snow and injuries played a factor in getting footage while you were here. Do you feel like even with all the bullshit you were still able to pull off a decent section?
For 5 days, I don’t think I could have asked for much more! You always want it to have been better, but the idea for the tour is to have the edits all be a really different from one another, which I believe we successfully accomplished.
4. where are you headed to next? and will you be coming back to SLC anytime soon to chill with the Bladed and Faded Crew?
For now I’m trying to lay low in Boise and figure out what I can do as far as maybe getting this hernia fixed. Making the Vegas part was really painful, so I’d like to go back there and really sink my teeth into that place with the homie Tony Rivituso. But, we’ll see what the doc has to say. Boise’s only 5 hours away from SLC, so I’m most definitely trying to make it down there soon!
