The year is almost over and we decided to ask some of your favorite Pros to give us a little wrap up of their 2012. Events they’ve visited, edits or videos they’ve filmed for, their favorite moments of the year…
2012: Nils Jansons
Hey Nils, how you’re doing these days? How does your normal day look like?
I’m very good, thanks. I have been home for a while because of studies and Christmas and just been skating a lot in two indoors we have. My normal day depends of what I have in plan. I go blade very often, 3 days a week I go to school, might go ski, live with my parents. Normal day could be like getting up at 12.00 nice break fast with coffee then off to skatepark with the homies, skate hard, then meet my girl, have another coffee and eat, then off to school, then back to my girls place, dinner, movie, sleep, get up and take my girl to school 8 in the morning and then just another day starts and who knows where i will end up.
Hows Riga in the wintertime?
Stupid cold and at the moment just not nice, it’s not even white snow now but it’s snow mixed with mud. But when it’s super snowy I like it, when just everything is white and u have warm glows, hat and a scarf and winter boots- then it’s really nice.
You want to give us a little wrap up of how your 2012 looked like?! Please name your 2012…
Ghetto Games Festival
Geneva Flow Bowl
China X Open
Bladelicious tour around Baltic states
Hedonskate summer tour (Sweden, Poland, Germany)
West cost mini tour
It’s always a little bit of touring when I go to events as well, because I don’t know exactly what to expect or where I will stay and where I will end up.
Twisted/ smashed my knee pretty bad
Twisted wrists which I can still feel at this moment as I’m writing this
Twisted ankle during Ponycup, ankles are the worst thing to fuck up.
Any specific moment or experience that stood out in 2012?
Winterclash– amazing feeling to skate in the finals with that massive crowd going crazy.
