Brixton’s Brian Delatorre Interview

Brixton's Brian Delatorre Interview

Brixton's Brian Delatorre Interview

Words by Adam Sullivan | Portrait By Jason Lee

Few people ever get the chance to have a career in front of a lens. Fewer still take the time to jump behind the lens. Meet Brixton Skate Ambassador Brian Delatorre, who’s just as likely to shoot as be shot.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO?
I live in the Mission District; the city is changing, though.
There’s tons of development, tons of tech industry now… It’s a bummer, but I try not to pay any attention to it. If you let it bother you, you might as well just get out. I got my own thing, anyway.

IS ALL THE CHANGE GOOD FOR SKATING?
Eh, like any major city, spots come and go. If anything,there’s new buildings, but even they come pre-knobbed.
But you know what? The hills ain’t changing, and that’s the whole point of SF—you go there to bomb hills.

Franky Villani’s “No Cash Value” part

Franky Villani

Franky Villani’s new part for Zero’s “No Cash Value” is different from any other Zero part I have seen before. Although he has the usual hammers that you would expect from a Zero rider, he also has unique trick choices and a technical edge that most don’t.

The contest was a tough one to judge with so many skateboarders that came out and ripped, lines were getting one upped and kids were going bigger to get a spot on the list. Everybody was really stoked on the Back to Back idea and the idea of an open jam. We will definitely be hosting another one in 2016!
