Kris Hemmingsen, a Port Alberni local, who rides for Instrumental Skateboards.  Put together his first video (Why Not P.A. ?) with a borrowed, low budget video camera, his gang of unruly friends, and the passion that comes with skateboarding.  It’s a video that makes you want to go skateboarding, because it’s fun, and always should be.  Here’s a short 10 question interview from the man himself.

1. HOW MANY YEARS SKATING?
     20 this spring.

2. YOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE SKATEBOARDER?
     Probably Rodney Mullen…  The most innovative one out there.

3. FAVORITE SKATE SPOT? 
     P.A. park!

4. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO PUT TOGETHER A VIDEO? 
     I had lots of footage, and wanted to show off some of the younger kids talent from town…  Help get the kids names out there.

5. ARE YOU WORKING ON A NEW VIDEO? 
     Slowly, very slowly.  Basically banking footage, but trying right now to get footage together for your video (Instrumental, Concyse, and DNA) and the Instrumental video.

6. DRINK OF CHOICE? 
     Lucky Lager…  And coffee.

7. BEST PLACE TO BE DURING SUMMER?
     P.A.

8. FAVORITE MOVIE? 
     Gleaming The Cube.

9. CURRENT SET UP? 
     Instrumental skateboard.

10. WHY NOT P.A.?
       Why not?

SPECIAL THANKS?
     Thanks to Brando and Jamie at Instrumental Skateboards, Mr. Picton for putting me in the epic vid “Stranded”, Jimbo at Jays/Lace-It-Up for all the deals, Ramsey’s Corner Store, Hemmi-land, the P.A. crew, Vancouver Island Skaters, and everyone who helped with the “Why Not P.A.?” vid.

…stay tuned and stay gold
-Picton
