"Getting Your Bearings"

Ben Cundall- Death, Nike SB, Budding Thespian

Hooked: Hey Dude wicked to see you... ok treat this interview like your sitting in a Jumbo Jet. At the start full throttle till were off the ground, mid flight a bit of turbulence so stay seated and hang on tight, finally nice easy descent and arrival...Ok start those engines...

Hooked: How's life on the Death, been on any wild trips lately?

Not been on a trip for a while with the Death Team but I have away with Nike on a caravan trip to the seaside for a fluff magazine who are doing a limited edition Nike SB book due out later this year, it's going to be dope.

Hooked: Can't wait to see that... now that Document has ceased, there probably won't be a Big Push this year for Death to win. What projects(adverts/videos) have you been busting your balls for lately?

I may have a Death advert coming out soon, and apart trying to get photo's the new Death video is everyones main mission at the moment, I need to focus and really start busting my balls to get some footage locked.

Hooked: What's the worst thing that happened to you while you were drunk?

Accidentally getting the train to Peterborough instead of Harrow and missing a free trip to the Isle of White. That sucked but luckily the tour article came out really well even though I missed the last stretch.

Hooked: What tricks are you learning at the moment?

Switch flip back tails, fs nollie heel to switch back 5.0.

Hooked; Respect... We noticed that you've done a bit of TV presenting over the years, have you got anymore offers to be on the box in the near future?

I love acting, it's super hard to get into anything half decent, I would love to be in Hollyoaks as a rebellious skateboarder love rat, that would be dope so Hollyoak execs if your listening!!!

Hooked: What trick do you have in your bag that would shut someone down in a game of skate?

Dunno, I can do inward heelflips regular, fakie, nollie and switch on a good day, so I guess that would shut down a few people down.

Hooked: Amen... Who on Death has the worst habits?

Moggins, he is pure scum.

Hooked: Tell us how it's going with Nike SB, are they doing you any more ltd edition shoes?

They are constantly doing ltd edition shoes with various different themes, each month Im stoked on my package. The Janoski shoe that is due out sometime soon is looking really nice.

Hooked: What skate vid gets you psyched to skate?

Mind Field is seriously inspiring, Fully Flared of course, the Transworld video with Richie was tight.

Hooked: Who has rad style in skateboarding today?

Dean Palmer, Koston, Malto, Welsh, Arto, Tim O'conner, Busenits

Hooked: So you're pretty into your Facebook... is that how you keep an eye on the party scene?

I use Facebook to chat with friends from all over and just keep up on what people are doing, I also browse the Sidewalk forum to keep up on skate gossip.

Hooked: What's it like being sponsored by Relentless, two cans of that back to back can give you a panic attack... you into it?

I stick to water, I find being hydrated helps your concentration more than anything.

Hooked: Curry, KFC or Chocolate Buttons?

Vindaloo all the way, with a shout out to KFC's gravy and the white Chocolate Buttons.

Hooked: Thanks for that Ben we've landed, you may now exit the plane.
I know the life jacket looks good on you, but leave it under seat and watch your step on the way out... cheers Dude its been a hoot.. ha ha
