This weekend’s Interview goes out to our homie Dan Abadi. Dan is one of those skaters who you seen clips of and here and there. The first time I seen Dan was in the city stars video smith grinding this 12 rail in paul’s part wondering who that dude was. Ten years later I am interviewing him and now skating with him, it’s crazy how time flys and theworld works. - S.M.

1. WHO do you skate with on the regular?
I skate with PRod,Shane oneil, Torey pudwill, Justin schulte, Carlos Zarazua, gonzo, Chance Elridge.
2. WHAT is the skate click all about?
I started the skate click with my friend manny salazar. He has been in school doing web design and asked me if i wanted to start a site. I would also have random footage that wouldn’t make it into videos or guys that would film a good trick and wouldn’t be used. For example warm up tricks of Paul, Shane and Torey are still things people want to see. Our main idea was to be able to put out footage that was really good but not good enough for a video part. I would not only film behind the scenes but there warm up tricks before they got their bangers.
3. WHERE is the warm up spot before you go street skating?
The warm up spots don’t really exist any more for us haha. We practice at the skatepark during the week or at night before we go straight to the spot and hanlde the trick.
4. WHEN are you going to make a how to nollie crook video?
haha any time someone wants to film me, I can get that handled no problem.
5. WHY haven’t the skate click and M.S.A. done a collab yet?
IDK but I feel like big things are going to happen soon, and we both have links going to each others websites for now.
6. HOW do you feel about skating now since you started?
Skating now is defiantly different since I started. When iI started I was strictly a skater looking at skating in only a skateboard prospective. “Get tricks on film and do tricks no one has done yet” Now I look at skating as a way of life. I skate, I film, I shoot photos, edit videos, and just can have fun and make money on what I love and have always loved.
