Locs...Luke Hunt

Photo by Sam McGuire

Name: Luke Hunt

Nicknames: London & Pip.

Age: 30

What's your deal? Skate, create, build, destroy.

Where are you doing it? Minneapolis and London when I can get back over there.

How high can you ollie? Lower and lower each year.

Can I have your board? Negative. Need it to remain sane.

Favorite local video: Shitheads Vol. 8

What's in your car? Bungee cords, Ipod, sleeping bag, duct tape, tools, skateboard, spare skateboard, spare car battery (current one is on its last legs), fireworks, Coors.

It's a hot day, should we go skating or swimming? Skate, then ride bike to swim in Minneapolis’ lakes.

Who's your favorite local skater? Too many in Minneapolis, lets just say Shier from over the pond.

Where's the best place to eat? Tao Foods

Mini-ramp and beer or out on the streets all day? Ummmm, ramp + bottle of red wine.

How old are you in skate years? 17 years, with too many of those years lost due to debauchery. Ankles are feeling about 50 recently.

It's 10 PM on a Saturday night, what are you doing? Probably just got a cold one, about to jump on the cruiser or my bike to find the next one.

Thanks for you bein you luke! If it weren't for you there wouldn't be backyard ramp jam... Every year I look forward to that event. It's the most fun I have skating all year. Thanks for organizing that all these years... You rip.

One of the most positive people in the MN scene. BY RJ Is the best event local or not! Luke brought me to the hospital when I broke my skull at Beer up Bro Down. Thanks man I needed that and didn't want to go. Do you still got that photo of me bleeding out my ears Munz??? The Bro Down is another great event I'd like to see turn into a tradition! I would vote for you Luke
Thanks for getting us out of the skateparks, and keeping the private ramp scene alive !
Lead us to the Halfpipe!
