Where did you first skate?

I got into skateboarding because of my dad, when i was a kid i would just roll around on his skateboard in the halfpipe in our neighborhood. I guess the first place i skated was that halfpipe

What’s the difference of the skate scene in California vs. Belgium?

The biggest difference between the scene in california and back here is the commercialism tied against it. In california everybody has a skateboard and you can buy one practically everywhere. Here in belgium the scene is smaller however the scene is having a boost the last few years.

Future travel plans?

At the end of the summer i we will be going on a trip to LA i’m really exited for that one.

what do you think about Belgium having no government?

Belgium has a goverment it’s just that these pigs don’t know how to ride a skateboard, so they don’t know what’s going on in the country all they do is making the relationship in between french en dutch region worse. They are all a bunch of ignorant pussy’s that don’t dare to make a change of plans.

Your dad raised you well. Any thank you’s:

Fred Ferand (for taking some rad pictures), Jeff Podolski (for getting me into pool skating), My Friends (for these late night sessions).
Fuck You’s: To every skater that isn’t having fun. The government, Nazis, your mom and the rain.

One thought on “Hot Shit: Melvin Podolski

  1. Umm .Going to cali doesn’t mean seeing cebels. I’ve been there, and i didn’t see anyone famous, but i passed their mansions in beverly hills. Also, you could stay at a motel, or the days inn hotel, those should be cheap. But it depends on where you are staying, so google hotels near where you are staying. Also, you could go to Sea World, which is in San Diego. That is 2 hours from los angeles from what i remember. You could go to disney world, which is pretty close. Also, if its still warm there go to malabu, it really makes you feel like you are in cali, lol. Go to the beach. If its still warm there. Edit: Beverly hills is really expensive, so don’t even by water there, i think its like 7 or 8 for a bottle of water, its crazy. My whole family was starving in beverly hills lol.
