Grew up in Latvia, started skateboarding when I was 11, in 2001 and in 2008 I moved to study Business to Barcelona for three years.
Afterwards I moved to London for my last year of studies and ever since then I have been living back home in Latvia, travelling the world with DC Shoes, Element skateboards and Red Bull teams! Most frequently I would travel to Barcelona, Spain and Long beach in California.
- 2017: Two-time European Skateboarder of the year. Turned Pro for Element skateboards and I have had two shoe colorways for DC Shoes.
I would like to be able to skate for as long as possible and stay healthy!
Full enlightenment would be cool to achieve, but difficult so let’s just say it would be great to be 50 and healthy, happy and skateboarding!
Injuries, rain, the police and other skate stoppers.
Landing a trick is the best feeling in the world or skateboarding downhill powersliding here and there!
Anywhere that has flat ground works!
Rule number one is to have fun!
Other people watching me, so I’m scared not to land a trick.
Live in accordance with Yourself!
