DOB: June 25, 1991
Location: Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA
Trade: Student/Longboard Shredder
BM: Where are you from?
JG: Vegas baby
BM: How old are you?
JG: 19… 21 on a good day.
BM: How long have you been surfing?
JG: Whole life aka 9 years.
BM: What got you in to longboarding?
JG: The crowds… Kinda sucked being a shortboarder with 30 other people out.
BM: You got a girl friend or boy friend hey man im not judging?
JG: “a” girl friend? Ha ha. Taylor Taylor Taylor… we all know a playboy such as myself doesn’t settle for just one.
BM: Who are you riding for these days?
JG: The one and only Bing Surfboards.
Special shout out to the newly weds Matt Calvani (Shaper) and Margaret Yao (Manager).
BM: If you didn’t surf what would you do?
JG: Skate, maybe Frisbee golf. I don’t know probably nothing… I would be fat and lazy. More* fat and lazy.
BM: Describe your perfect contest circuit?
JG: No tri fins. Heats would last about an hour or so. After you surf your heat, the judges have to surf and you judge them, I think that’s where it would get pretty interesting. Free Food.
BM: Any weird diets, eating habits?
JG: My diet consists mainly of candy and “cup of noodles”. Living on a college budget I can’t afford much else….
I’d probably be eating the exact same regardless of budget actually.
BM: You a nose picker?
BM:If some one were to say something bad about you what would they say?
JG: Way too competitive, especially at Super Smash Bros. Use “That’s what she said jokes” too often. That I care too much.
BM: If some one were to say something good about you what would they say?
JG: Decent surfer. Awesome Cuddler. Movie buff. Just plain buff.
BM: If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live and why?
JG: Australia. Went to the Noosa Surfing Festival there last year and was blown away, surf was amazing, people were friendly and the girls couldn’t resist the Californian accent.
BM: How much time do you spend on facebook a day?
JG: It depends if I have any new people to lurk, for example a couple new friend requests can result in hours of extensive lurking… I am very thorough and not proud of it.
BM: Top five fave bands?
Anything on a Karaoke Machine…
BM:Tell me what you would like to see in the future for longboarding?
JG: More personality, it seems that a lot of longboarders are either really high pro with bright colors or trying to be way too artsy on a single fin. I’m down for the high pro moves and cut off jeans but we can’t all be Taylor Jensen and Alex Knost. I am however liking the kids that are finding the in between right now and hope to see more of them in the future. I’d also like to see more people riding Bing’s woooo!
