What are you doing these days?

Im not doing that much these days, Im home in Oslo and relaxing.

Death Dance was released not to long ago, and I saw there were clips from Oslo spots in some other parts. Did you get a visit or has there been a trip or similar?

Yes some of the boys were her for a week this summer, the weather was pretty bad, but we were able to squeeze in some street skating.

What is your favorite clip from the film?

The k-grind fingerflip that Johan did was insane! Pretty big rail also!

(You can see the k-grind finger flip at 1:18:00 in the video over. You can also see the comments on some of Karstens footage at 1:13:00 and 1:19:25)

Do you have a highlight from 2019?

The highlight must have been getting on WKND. I feel it was the right decision and I am insanely happy there!
