Photo by Sam McGuire

Name: Emeric Pratt

Nicknames: Emu, Big Baby Ou, Seth has a new one every time I see him.

Age: Four decades deep.

What's your deal? Learning how to skateboard, speak german, and type in c#.

Where are you doing it? Wherever I can.

How high can you ollie? Only as high as the thing I'm skating.

Can I have your board? I'm sure you wouldn't want it.

Favorite local video: Anything with Christopher John in it.

What's in your car? Nothing, the locks have been frozen on and off for most of the winter so I keep it open.

It's a hot day, should we go skating or swimming? Skate until we're dehydrated.

Who's your favorite local skater? Timmy Joe Johnson McFlipkick, they're all good.

Where's the best place to eat? Oktoberfest in Muenchen.

Mini-ramp and beer or out on the streets all day? Street skating with the homies.

How old are you in skate years? I'll be old enough to drink this summer.

It's 10 PM on a Saturday night, what are you doing? Emeric is at home watching a movie, Olu is blackout drunk somewhere.
