First of all, congratulations on having your son William Dexter Jackson. How has having a son changed your life?
I don’t think of change.
Why did you have the baby in New Zealand?
To be patriotic.
What is your favorite word?
It was a big year for you, with the baby and two videos. Can you talk about how you got the inspiration to make each video?
Inspiration is a concept. The only thing I can think of for inspiration is Michelangelo. In an aesthetic way, he’s all that comes to mind. In a physical way, I don’t know… Skateboarding—I don’t know if it’s static or physical.
How was Gnar Gnar different from Gnaughty?
Just different names, I guess.
What turns you on?
What turns you off?
Are you still determined to kickflip a bike?

Went down to check out the Maloof Money Cup to get an idea on what’s going down this weekend. It’s pretty amazing what they can build in such a short time.
A bunch of dudes were out there getting warmed up for the next few days.
If you get a chance, get down there and check it out. www.maloofmoneycup.com
