Talking to Tilt-Moders: Louie Barletta & Chris Avery

“It goes back to ‘if you can’t laugh at yourself’ – then what are you even doing? It’s life and you only have one shot at life. You can be fucking serious as shit or silly as fuck and in the end you still just die. So why not take the awesome route and have fun with it?”

“You know what man? As of recently I have been less interested in travelling because I enjoy being at home with my two and a half year old son. But I still enjoy a good skate trip. Get all the boys together, get the team together and it’s always good. A lot of good skateboarding happens and you polish up on your skating and everything’s good…”

“I think it’s a lot different to be honest, not so much transition, not so fast – maybe. In America there’s more tranny, more vert skaters, more pool skaters. Here there’s more street, more banks and ledges. Different styles but I think the European’s level is fucking gnarly now, they can compete with anybody now.”
