Esther Godoy Interview (April 2008)

I stole my brothers board while he was at school camp. Somehow I took a huge chip out of the nose, when he got back from camp he got the shits and made me go and buy my own.

What was your first set up?

Geoff Rowley Flip board with the big yellow face sun graphic, Indy trucks and Birdhouse wheels.

What is the best and worst thing about your hometown?

Theres always something to do or something to see. Its an amazing place to live, skate and party. But its not good for chilling. There’s always something on so I never get any sleep.

I like to eat, I love to eat, and I play records which people can dance to. Dolly parton love.

All of them doing it for the love and not changing pant size according to season…and I guess I should say Paul Rodriguez because I spent my teen years having a now not so secret crush on him. He skates alright too.

Well I learned to kickflip on the carpet of my room after watching PLAY which is an old aussie video. So I’m going to put that in number 1 2 3 4 and 5.

Favorite new trick or trick you want to learn?

When I can do back tail slides with my eyes closed my time with skateboarding will be complete.
