J. Hey Kevin, where do you come from, where do you live right now and how did you start skateboarding?
K. Hey Joe, I come from a city call Hamar its in Norway. Now I live in Copenhagen best place on earth. I started to skate when I was 9 years old, we got a new concrete skatepark and stated to go there and hang out with the older skaters there.

What happens on tour stays on tour - please forget that and tell us a secret Creature tour story! ;-)
K. There is a many good stories from the creature trip, but I don´t really know what to tell, haha.
J. Any good Berlin memories?
K. Yeah, Berlin was super sick. Just bike around the city and skate spots! And of course we had a blast at FRANKEN bar.
Roll out, Ollie in
