SURF SKATE STYLE WITH BRANDON CRUZ.
INTERVIEW BY JUICE MAGAZINE.
PHOTO BY ISMAEL HERNANDEZ.

When did you first hear of SurfSkate style?
I cant remember the exact time that I heard the phrase. Growing up on the beach, skating and goofing off, it just seemed to be around all the time. We rode tubes as we skated, tucking under bushes, and stuff like that.
What does SurfSkate style mean to you and who has the best surf skate style?
It means style, period. The best skaters flow like surfers, and the best surfers rip like skaters. Lets start with the surfers who skated and pushed it, because that was the root of it. There was Herbie Fletcher in that pool, and Skip Frye, who still has the most soul, and, obviously, Larry Bertlemann, Buttons and Mark Liddell were the guys we copied. Skating has a move named for a surfer. Does surfing have a move named for a skater? Surfers kind of ollie, but what else? Great stylish skaters are usually the ones who surf a lot, too. Jay was the raddest. TA, Scott Oster, John Stevenson, Jack Waterman, Shogo Kubo, Wally Inouye, Jay Smith its just there. Style can be copied, but it looks like its forced. Surf style is there if youre there, mentally. Its instinct. Pedro looks like hes surfing a big ass wave. Jeff Tatum has style. Olson has style. Duane Peters may not surf much, but that dude is style.
How has surfing influenced skateboarding, and skateboarding influenced surfing?
Surfers started skateboarding. The Hiltons, George Trafton, Skip Frye, Herbie Fletcher, those guys set the surf style for skaters, then came Bertlemann. We have the bert. Carving a bowl or a pool, we copied Gerry Lopez. Style and flow. Surfing was calm in the eye of the storm. Skating was there, and then the 70s happened, and the boundaries were pushed. Bertlemann went to the air, Kevin Reed, Davey Smith, and so did Jay, Shreddi and Tony Alva. We started sliding, carving harder, hitting coping, flyaways, then they were getting landed. Surfers saw that air was possible. It was a trade back and forth. Christian Fletcher took the air game higher in surfing, copying ollies, throwing back to skaters like George Orton, Jay Adams, Chris Strople, (the alley oop) and Wally, who got insanely high and stylish. Now skaters are setting the bar for whats radical with the 900, the 1080, Pedro Barros 12 everywhere, and the surfers, air reverses every wave, rodeo flips, freak mutant waves, everyone is charging. Its gotten more dangerous than ever. 60, 70 waves and bigger, Jaws, jumping off of buildings, nuts.
Is SurfSkate style important today?
Style isnt important. Its mandatory. Why do something if youre not going to respect the roots? Our roots are from gnarly guys who pushed shit as far as they could, and then passed it on to the new crew. Keep passing it on, or get an SUP or a scooter, and stay out of our way.

Stoked you left out Santa Cruz. God knows there was no connection. Kevin Reed is drunk and homeless because of you.

I forgot to add sarcasm to my last sentence, but you probably got that. Oh I forgot that little boutique skate company started here from a surfboard company.

I didn't live in Santa Cruz, but I did leave out some really stylish and innovative people. Plus, the interview was edited. I mentioned Salba and Olsen and Blackheart. Not Kevin Reed, though. My bad.

Hey I had to think of someway to give you some grief for knowing so many people.
I enjoyed image in the piece ~ looked like you knew what you where writing about.

I read you on back in the States just wondering. How many of the places in
Malibu that help people get it together, where burned in the fires?

Not enough of those scum sucking rehabs burned. They are all major corporate money machines these days. I know people who work at them. The places were insured. They will be back up ripping people off soon. All of the clients got placed in different ones around the unaffected areas. Can't let that insurance money lapse!!!
Headed back to Europe tomorrow. Had to surf Oxnard. Was kinda fun yesterday, and the water was warm!!!
