New Breed: Alex Johnson Interview
Interview by Joe Miller.
Tell us your name, age and hometown?
Alex Johnson, 16, Decateur IL.
How long have you been riding?
When did you first see flatland, and who/what got you started?
I first saw Day Smith in one of the Matt Hoffman games. Then one day saw a video on youtube and decided that i want to do it. At only sixteen years old you are progressing really fast.
How much do you ride, and do you set goals or just ride and see where it takes you?
I like to ride everyday depending on the weather. I like to set goals once in a while, but I usually just let things happen.
Do you have any plans to attend any Jams or Contests this year?
I plan on competing at Jomopro and York jam, and also the French connection.
The Flatland scene in Texas is huge compared to most areas, who do you ride with most of the time, or do you ride alone?
During the week I ride by myself, but on Saturdays I ride at the OG with the Austin crew.
Do you find it easier to learn established tricks or invent your own tricks/switches?
