So Ross, how many NASS Festivals deep are you rolling now?
Damn, quite a lot! I’ve missed a few random years but i reckon I’ve been roughly ten times or more…
Can you remember your first time?
Yes, really well. Nic Powley brought me there in the back of his transit van when I was about 14yrs old, and I think I placed well because I came back with a trophy full of cash. I’m pretty sure Powley has a photo of me asleep in the back of his van cuddling the trophy hahaha!!
What is it that sets NASS apart from other skate contests?
Well, for a start there aren’t many skate comp events like that left in the U.K. – and its’ the only one I know of in a festival environment.
What’s your highest placing so far and what was the secret to your success that year do you think?
I’ve won it in the past. Secret to success- I’d say leaving the drum n bass tent before 5am probably helps!
What’s the best trick that you can remember seeing over all your years of NASS attendance?
Dan Wileman’s crook down the double kink rail last year. He did it so easily, it was dope!
What about your favourite obstacle or set up from over the years?
The mini mega ramp set-up was mental. That thing was scary!
