Adam Gaucher is an enigma. Or at least he’d like to think he is. I personally don’t think he’s mysterious, but he is very difficult to understand. For example, some reoccurring questions concerning Adam that have plagued myself and the Derby skateboarding community in recent times are:
How he gets to a session at 4pm when he’s text ‘skating?’ at 8am?
Why it takes him so long to make and eat a hardboiled egg?
Why does the boot of his car still not open?
How much talcum powder does one man need to put on his feet?
Why would you ask me (more than once) to sniff your grapefruit?
To you, these questions probably don’t seem that cryptic. Maybe you think we could just ask him, and he’d tell us the answers? Well I can assure you we’ve tried, and none of us are any wiser. The same things keep happening, and the same questions continue to be asked. Nothing ever changes.
It may appear like we’re continuously frustrated with Adam, but that’s actually not the case. You can most definitely balance out our frustrations with some positive Gaucher flavour.
You see, not only is he a seriously rad ATV skateboarder who’s great to session with, he’s also one of the first people I will text if I’m going down the pub. I’ve lost count of the good times and laughs I’ve had with him over the last few years, and I really hope they continue.
Bar the continuous weirdness, I’m stoked he’s my friend.
