Ron­nie San­doval on Rob­bie Russo:

Transworld Snowboarding - - IC3 -

How’s it look­ing? Look­ing good. We have six more days. Hop­ing to get a cou­ple more things be­fore it’s done.

How has it been work­ing with Rob­bie? I know you have men­tioned that he in­flu­enced you heav­ily when you started skat­ing.

It’s been rad. We might just need a lit­tle more mo­ti­va­tion here (laughs), but when we go get him out it’s the best. Hope­fully ev­ery­body is stoked on our part.

If the part isn’t good you can just blame Rob­bie? (Laughs) No. I’ll blame my­self and then I’ll blame JoeFace.

I sup­pose we could also blame Chan­nel Street for be­ing closed. That park would prob­a­bly have had some heavy cov­er­age with you and Rob­bie.

Oh man, we would have had some gnarly clips there for sure. We al­ready had some crazy ideas. This part would be done al­ready no prob­lem. But maybe this is bet­ter. We’re forced to skate other stuff. This is TWS video #30. What video and what part first comes to mind when you think of TWS videos?

As a per­son that watches al­most noth­ing but tran­si­tion videos, I’d say [Tony] Tru­jillo In Bloom, [John] Cardiel Sight Un­seen, and [Dan] Dre­hobl in Free Your Mind (’03). John, for his part, was ded­i­cated to the max and just made it hap­pen.

Skat­ing alone or skat­ing with friends?

De­pends. If I’m at the park, I’m skat­ing with friends. At Chan­nel I can skate alone but I’m ba­si­cally with friends ei­ther way be­cause no mat­ter what, a friend is go­ing to pop up out of nowhere. Skat­ing street is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. I don’t like skat­ing rails alone. But I’ll go skate around town by my­self.

Best real life duet?

June Carter & Johnny Cash, “It Ain’t Me Babe” (’68).

Best shared skate part?

It’s got three but I’ll go with [Mike] Car­roll/Alex Ol­son/BA in Pretty Sweet (’12).

Fa­vorite TWS video? Sight Un­seen (01).
