Tommy Christiana 2012 Web Edit

Tommy Christiana puttin in work for Brute Wheels and ECX for his 2012 Web Edit. Also had time to catch up with Tommy Boy and get a short interview done.

Tommy boy, what's going on bro?

Not much man just chilling and riding as much as I can!

Nice, nice.  All right so why is it that out of all the ECX homies, you seem to be the least known? It seems like people knew about you when you were just a lil dude, but you kinda fell off the grid once you started shredding hard... if that's not ass backwards, I don't know what is..

I guess I would say the best reason I haven't been getting as much exposure lately is because I haven't had many videos out. My last big one was about 2 years ago and since then the only things I were in were a weekend video and team trips. I also started progressing a lot, and didn't have a filmer for a while.

So from what I've seen, you don't really have a weakness? Seems like you can shred a grindbox, hit rails, sets, gaps, and ride park? Would you say that's true?

Haha yea I guess I could say that's true. I basically enjoy riding everything. Whether its throwing bri flip tricks in park, hitting rails, or getting techy on boxes it's all fun to me. I mean, why should I limit myself to one style of riding?

 Good mindset to have dude. How's it been riding for ECX?

Being on ECX has been, most likely, the best thing that could've ever happened to me. As soon as I got on, they supported me to the fullest by paying contest fees, hooking up parts when I really need them, or taking me on amazing trips all over the place. I couldn't ask for anything else.

Who've you been riding with the past year or so?

The past year I've been riding with a TON of people. Mostly Jon Dev, Evan Barba, Tyler Bell, and a bunch of other of my friends local to me.

Some steezy dudes for sure. How was the filming process for your latest edit?

I'm not going to lie, it's been tough dude. For a while I didn't even have a filmer or camera. After a while I asked Michael pytel to help me out and he gladly did, along with Tyler Bell. They filmed the majority of my video.

Good stuff. You got any riders that you look to for inspiration?

I just look up to anybody who kills it. Basically just everybody I ride with because they push me not only in park, but all aspects of riding.

What do you have planned for 2013 bro?

Hopefully a lot haha. I hope this video will get me more exposure so I can get to travel around the country and just ride everywhere. That's always been my dream.

Any last words, thanks, or shout outs, let em go bro.

I would like to give a huge thanks to Mike Lashbrook from ECX for supporting for the 2 1/2 years I've been on. Couldn't have done it without him. Also all my filmers, friends, and Tyler Bell for editing. And you for this interview haha! Lasts words would be to just keep persevering if you don't get the recognition you want. It'll come with time and practice.

  2. I thought you riding that skim board at 8 yrs old was crazy enough for a little dude. Where does your fearlessness and confidence come from??
