Apryl Woodcock Interview (April 2008)
How were you introduced to skateboarding? What got you started?
I was introduced to skateboarding by my neighborhood friends at the time. After i was introduced, I became self driven to take my ability to another level. I became very committed and started going to the skatepark every day. I’d say that’s what got me started.
What was your first set up?
Birdhouse skateboard, Tracker trucks, Spitfire wheels, Abec bearings.
What is the best and worst thing about your hometown?
The best thing is obviously the skatepark we have available. The worst thing is some mornings it smells like shit.
Besides skateboarding, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Besides skateboarding, I’m a real dreamer. I love doing odd things like sitting up on my roof and pondering every possible alternate situation. I also love going to church with my friends.

Describe your dream session.
A session where all of my friends were involved and we were all pushing each other to land different variations of the five. I think that would be exciting.
What kind of music have you been listening to lately?
Hardcore music when I’m on my skateboard and chill music when I’m not.
