Locs...Rob Sissi

Photo by Sam McGuire

Name: Robert Anthony Sissi

Nicknames: "Sissy"

Age: Old enough that my daughter is closer to the age of an average kid at the skatepark than me.

What's your deal? Trying to raise the seeds, keep the wife happy and trying to get out to skate once a week.

Where are you doing it? The burbs dog. Gas is killing me.

How high can you ollie? Less high every day. A curb seems like a ledge to me.

Can I have your board? If yours is completely beat to shit you can gladly have the deck and wheels, but forget about the trucks fool.

Favorite local video? Midopoly with Anonymous in a close second. Those were some of the best, if not the best times as far as skateboarding in Minneapolis went. Ah the days of rolling to premiers in limos.

What's in your car? Way too much shit to even get into.

It's a hot day, should we go skating or swimming? Depends on if it's family day or skate day. Family day at the pool for sure.

Who's your favorite local skater? It's impossible to say my favorite, so fuck it, I'm naming all the dudes that I think are the kings: Emeric "Olu" Pratt, Steve Nesser, Seth McCallum, Darren Navarette, Dave Leroux, Ryan Fabree, Danny Jensen, Chad Benson, Dan Jackson, Dave Cardwell (wherever you are), John Muldoon, Ryan Hansen, Andy Paulsen, Judd Prosinski, and Todd "Turkey" Brown. These are the skaters that laid the foundation for Minnesota skateboarding.

Where's the best place to eat? Emily's Lebanese Deli or Manny's Steak House.

Mini-ramp and beer or out on the streets all day? Streets all day downtown then skate down Nicolet and get happy hour beers at McCormick's and say what up to CJ when he's working.

How old are you in skate years? Deceased.

It's 10 PM on a Saturday night, what are you doing? VIP at club night-night.

Sissi is a class act. Rob has done more than his fair share of supporting and/or promoting the MN/MPLS scene (remember Supernatural?) than most people reading this site can claim. He is a bonafied Loc that's been down since before 816 Clan and is still out there skating which speaks volumes about who he is and what skateboarding means to him.

Any haters out there better check their s#@t and ask themselves "What, exactly, have I done for the scene that gives me any right to diss Rob Sissi? Oh yeah, that's right. I've done nothing, so I better just shut the f#@k up."

Keep the heelflips alive, Rob, and keep doin' your thing.

Nick, why are you censoring your own words? We have rights? And last but not least FUCK YOURSELF!

Thanks for the kind words Nick. And to the anonymous hater, keep hating dog. Like Chappell as R Kelly said, "haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love, I don't even want none of the above, I wanna piss on you..."

Hatin on Rob Sissi!?! That's just dumb. I've been with Sissi since 816, Triquemini, SPRNTRL, 30+ and too many other crews over the past 20 years to not take the hate along side with him, besides you haters would have been crying had you been subjected to Fed Hate circa 93'not so much because you would probably have sucked too bad to hang, but because you wouldn't step up your game, Todd Brown, will you comment on this?

He really took my thoughts about what I wanted from my board into consideration. I would recommend to anyone, at all levels of experience.
