To start, tell us who you are. Ako po si Christopher Nell.
Where are you originally from and how did you get into skateboarding?
Taga Valenzuela City. Nagskate ako dahil nag skate mga kababata ko.
Who were the guys you looked up to when you started skating?Jeff Gonzales and Demit Cuevas.
How did the lockdowns affect your skateboarding opportunities?Hindi naman siya nakakaapekto sa mga opportunities dahil nakakaskate pa naman sa tapat ng bahay and may mga private parks kaya still nakakaskate kahit lockdown.
What was your favorite part during the filming of “Out Here”?Paborito kong part ng filmings sa out here yung mga oras na malapit na ma kick-out tapos pressure sa trick at sa guards. Tsaka yung bond kasama yung crew.
When you’re not skateboarding – what are your favorite ways to unplug from the buzz of everyday life?Pag hindi ako nag skate, nag pa-paint ako minsan tapos minsan photoshoot at edit ng mga lumang clips at post sa Tiktok and IG.
Any advice for someone who’s new to skateboarding?Advice ko sa mga nagsisimula palang enjoy lng tapos wag mahiya mag skate kahit may magagaling.
What are your favorite DC shoes?
My favorite shoes from DC is yung collab ng Bronze56k Lukoda, the best shoes ever. I wish I could get another pair.
