Our roving reporter Mr Cox caught up with Flip’s Colombian representative and fearless maniac David Gonzalez on the phone to chat filming for Volcom’s Holy Stokes!, his new ‘Eagle SG’ shoe from Globe, going to see Iron Maiden with Harry Bastard and why he’d be down to represent Colombia in the Olympics. Get well soon David…
So David, how are things?
All good, man. Just been about getting ready to go to Brazil tomorrow. It’s going to be epic.
What’s the occasion?
We’re heading on a trip to get some more filming done for the new Volcom video, which is out around May time. I’m really looking forward to it. This is the last proper trip for the video. I’m hoping to get a couple of bangers.
Who’s going on the trip?
Collin Provost, Grant Taylor, Pedro Barros and Milton Martinez. Twelve days: Brazil, Argentina and Columbia. I’ll finish up at home.
How’s the part coming along?
Good, man. I think I’ve got around three and half minutes of footage so I’m nearly there. There are so many people involved with this video; it’s going to be amazing. I’ve been going for a really different kind of part to my Possessed to Skate one – I’ve been changing things up a bit. With my previous parts things were a lot more planned, with this one it’s been different. There’s going to be a lot more tranny too.
