Richard ‘French’ Sayer talks Artwork & Witchcraft

“I just really like drawing and always have. I don’t think it came from skateboarding but that definitely helped developed what I liked, as did listening to metal. Also I think going to galleries and my mum worked at an art college, so I would always go in and see what the students were doing. I always wanted to make art when I was younger, my aim was to go to art college and then I don’t think I ever really thought much past that.

Working Life & WKND Skateboards with Johan Stuckey

“I hadn’t even met Keith yet because he was in Europe, he came back and we hit it off super good. I started hanging out at the warehouse because I had nothing else to do and eventually they asked, “Why don’t you just work here?” so I worked there and skated for them. I had to quit HUF to skate for Habitat because that was the only way it was going to work. I skated for them for another couple of years after Habitat ended though.”

James Rewolinski talks Labor Skate Shop & New York City

“There was a connection between what you’d see on the East Coast videos and for us in the Midwest; we had winter, shitty ground, bad spots. You’d see Eastern Exposure, Dan Wolfe, Sub Zero and these guys are killing it and doing amazing stuff and it’s not perfect ground, it’s not schoolyards and stuff like that.”
