Sam Beckett: The Route One Interview

Posted by Route One on 24th August 2017

We're super proud to share with you news that our latest interview is with none other than Blind Skateboards pro and Route One team Rider Sam Beckett! Constantly trotting the globe as one of the world's elite vert riders, we managed to track down Sam to a quiet(ish) corner of Copenhagen a few weeks ago and set about asking him all the questions you really want to know...

Sadly Sam managed to badly injure his knee and ankle the month prior to flying over to CPH so it meant we weren't able to capture new examples of his vertical wizardry for you but his passion for skateboarding, whether at full health or not, still shines as bright and so we garnered quite the interview from him!

Covering everything from his love of tattooing, the origins of his real name and the forthcoming Blind video, Sam talks freely and gets us stoked on the idea of life itself. Though obviously a humble man, his quiet and considered demeanour is a commodity skateboarding can be proud of and we couldn't be more chuffed to have him represent us on the world stage. 

We sincerely hope you enjoy watching this as much as we did making it for you!
