Yo Trey, what’s going on? 

Nothing much man, just been working on my ramp in the backyard and riding as much as possible, when its not face-melting hot or raining.

Since you were doing them on both Dan’s covers you’ve appeared on, we can assume you’re big on  crank arm grinds. What went into getting this shot?

Justin Kosman was in town shooting some stuff for Vans.  Johnny Devlin and I went out with him to this school by my house and made the magic happen.

On a related note, you have some signature cranks coming out from Shadow.  Tell us about those.

Shadow hit me up about doing another signature part and asked me what I wanted.  I said that I’d really like to do some chromoly cranks, so they said “OK! lets make it happen!” and thats what we got: The best cranks I’ve ever ridden. 22mm spindle, chromoly cranks, Mick Foley proof.

Speaking of wrestlers, you also have the Cult Stone Cold frame and bars, which have been out for a bit.  How does it feel to have all of these signature parts, as well as having input on the design, look, name, etc.?

Its pretty weird.  Ha ha.  You always think when your a kid “If I had signature this or that, it would be like this and like this, blah blah”.   But, when someone actually says “Hey, what do you want in a signature frame or part?” it’s kinda hard!  So far, everything has turned out perfect. I just got done with my new signature seat for Shadow and I’m working on a version 2 of my frame, which should be done soon.

Besides being part of Cult, Shadow and Vans, you have your own project going with Crack Dad.  What is the inspiration to do your own shirts?

Now that I don’t ride for Billabong or whatever that stuff was, I can make whatever I want.  I actually get to hand print every single shirt that gets made and I love making art.

Your younger brother has been appearing in a lot of your videos.  It seems like his riding is getting pretty wild as well.  Are you a good or bad influence on him?

Jabe has a mind of his own.  He is a complete individual and he’s completely different from any other kid you’ll ever meet.  He’s 14, loves metal, FBM, knives and southern pride.

What’s your take on contests?  Love or hate?  You seem to do your own thing, always.

I like contests a lot. I think it’s fun getting to see people you don’t see all the time! Contests are no different than a normal session to me, I don’t have that one trick I’m gonna reveal for my run, so I never feel stressed. Honestly, I know that I’m not going to win and that’s fine, as long as one kid out there is psyched that he got to see me ride, then I did my part.

Do you have any new video projects in the works?

The Shadow DVD is my main part I’m working on right now.  I’ve been filming for that DVD almost 4 years now and I’ve been giving it 110%, trying to film the best section I’ve had. Hopefully, it shows.

Final words? 

Thanks so much to Robbie Morales and Ronnie Bonner for everything they’ve done for me, Chadwick for being the worst TM ever, Badders (Vans) for being Badders and Dan’s for putting me on the team and buying my shirts, pizzadale.
