What’s your full name?
David Robert Reyes Jr.
Where did you grow up?
Born in Yonkers New York and raised in Denver Colorado.
When did you start skating?
I started skating when I was 9 years old.
What cannabis strains make you happy?
I’ve always been a Durban poison guy hahah but I haven’t had that in ages. Out of NUG strains I’d say forbidden fruit or any of the purple haze family. 🏽
How do you unwind from a long day of filming?
Relaxing after a hot to cold shower and then a relaxing spliff and Hulu. Forensic files is my jam.
If a kid walked up to asking for your advice and you only had a few minutes to give ‘em your best tip, what would it be?
Enjoy every moment live in the now and know that someone somewhere on this planet grew up just like you or is living an even harder life and all they need is a high five, a conversation and kick flips!
Pass on the stoke and be a roll model for the youth. Positive over negative all day everyday.
What was your recent road trip back home to Colorado like? Do you find connecting with nature helps your overall well being and or skating?
I need to go back to Denver on a regular basis. It keeps me grounded. Humbled by going down memory lane. This trip I drove with my girl friend and along the way we stopped at the Grand Canyon, the arches national park and enjoyed the beautiful drive through the Rocky Mountains. We also brought my dog Minnie aka mindoslice303! Pitbulls are illegal in Denver so I wanted to add my two cents by taking a photo of her in downtown Denver haha which I posted in my story on insta. And as for my overall performance from visiting home I definitely feel more connected with the main reason I started skated. Which is to be complete misfits with your friends enjoying life day by day and most of all being there for one another unconditional love. The free love and happiness skating gives is what I remember when I go back to the starting point.
