During a recent DC filming trip to Barcelona, we grabbed a few minutes with Wes Kremer.
Find out what got him to start skating, and what it is that keeps him motivated each time he's on his board.

DC: Hey Wes, what got you started skating?

Wes: “I found out about skating through my neighbors. Some of the kids in my neighborhood were rollin¹ around in the cul-de-sac I grew up in, and after seeing them roll around I wanted to get a skateboard of my own. So I got my own skateboard and just started skating. I pretty much fell in love with going fast, catching air, and just hanging out on my board. I had other friends progressing at the same time, learning tricks, and in a way my friends helped keep me skating.

DC: What is it that keeps you skating?

Wes: I have an addictive personality and I'm fully addicted to skating. I'm a lifer. Pretty much it's in my blood, and you can't stop once you've been doing something for way more than half your life.
