In-depth background on his own life as a skater, sending footage into 411VM, working on Menikmati and Flip Skateboards' Sorry, moving back to Europe and working with Cliche Skateboards, his current photographic projects and why he believes Instagram has made skateboarding culture more creative.

Another great interview from R1's Alex Winstanley.
