Derek is a beast. He may have an Instagram for one of his dogs but he goes hard in the street. We filmed this whole part besides one or two clips in the six weeks that we were skating in ABQ. The feeling of starting and finishing such a sick part in such a short time is a pretty cool feeling, for us as we’re sure it was for him too.
Derek is a true street skater. His eyes are always pealed for the newest, cutiest, most unique spots that are popping up around Albuquerque all the time. It’s fun to film with him ’cause weather he has a plan or not, he’s ready to barge and not come home empty handed. He gets hooked up by Powell, Bones, Adidas and BZ skateshop.
