What type of skating do you enjoy the most?
I like a mix of downhill and free ride. Like trying to do runs as fast as possible, but also not putting my hands down. Sometimes you have to put your hand down and that’s ok.

What makes the perfect skate session?
25º celsius (77º F) outside. You gotta do something new and feel good about what you did. Push yourself, but not too much so you’re not too tired for beers outside in the summer evening.

Favorite Board?
Small Blind... (just kidding its the Blaze PT)

Stranded in a skateboard paradise, What 3 boards are you bringing?
Blaze PT, The Raft, Butter Lines Surfskate

Dream location to go skate?
The Canary Islands

Tell us what your top 3 skate trip essentials are?
Enough underwear for sure, can’t reuse those! Gotta have your board. Lastle a Gopro or some other camera.

What skate videos influenced you the most?
It was Eh Team Episode 12 - Welcome Kyle Martin, that was one of my favorite videos growing up. I also watched a lot of the old Bay Sessions videos.

Any hobbies outside of skateboarding?
I play a lot of FIFA and hang out with my friends a lot. That’s pretty much it, I’m usually skateboarding.

Got any hidden talents?
Hmm, hidden talents. Dude, I don’t know, I’m sorry.

What’s a typical day in Clayton’s life look like?
In the Summer, I’ll wake up make bacon and eggs for breakfast. And then I’ll meet up with people and skate some BP’s. After that, we’ll go skate another spot. I’ll meet up with some friends in the evening for some beers at sunset.

Favorite food?
Crab and Lobster or something like that. Yo get the melted butter sauce and dip it in there. It’s fun to eat, I think that’s why I like it. You have to work for your prize.

Any favorite music you'd like to shout out?
I listen to so much random stuff. Shoutout MF DOOM.

Pet peeves, list em!
Probably like lateness, but like whatever. I’m not gonna make a big deal out of it but come on. I don’t like straggling and taking too long to do things.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Still skating, but maybe I’ll have a family or something. It’s tough to say. Probably still skating but just taking it a little easier. Who knows though. If my body is still in good shape, I’ll be sending it. If I have a kid, maybe they’ll be learning to skateboard. Hopefully

If you could be any animal, what would it be?
Maybe like a dolphin or something. Then you can swim really fast and, like jump out of the water and dive back in, I think that would be pretty cool. OR maybe a flying squirrel, they have nature’s wing suit.
