Jenkem Mag interviews Bob Burnquist

"...people go to rob me and they’re like, “Hey, Bob! What’s up?” and then I’m good."

Jenkem Mag interviews Bob Burnquist in this insightful look into one of Brazil’s longest running professional skateboarders. From his early days in the public eye as one of Anti Hero‘s hellride squad to his groundbreaking work treading the fine line between skateboarding and stuntmanship on the megaramp and with his own personal loop in the garden (as you do), Bob has been pushing skateboarding on his own terms for a long time now and shows no signs of slowing down – if anything, he might be speeding up?

Obviously as it’s Jenkem then they have to get some questions about arses or genitals out of the way first, but from then on then things get pretty interesting as Bob covers avoiding robberies, the Brazilian bootleg skate product seen which thrived in the 1990s, his Anti Hero tramp stamp, where he’d like to take Megaramp skating next and much more. Even the most hardened ledge skater or style critic can’t fail to be interested by Bob’s eccentrically gnarly approach to four wheels and a plank of wood, so to read the interview in full click on either the photo or words below and immerse yourself in the world of Bob…

“Yeah, I’ve had notebooks for the last ten years. That came with little pencil holders, backpacks, and toys. There are a lot of different products like that that you get to capitalize on. I try to keep some control so I don’t see my name on scooters all of a sudden just because someone locked in a deal.”

In case you missed it the first time around, there’s probably no better time to introduce you to the fruits of a stoned night in when you find the soundtrack to Bob’s In Transition part muted on Youtube and marry it to the Game of Thrones theme tune
