Tim Brauch #12.
Do you have San Jose pride?
Yeah, it's fun. I guess there are a lot of places here that are really good for skating. The people are the funnest to hang out with here, too.
Who do you usually skate with?
I skate with Jason Adams, my friend Todd, Simon Woodstock, Jaya.
Yeah, I skate with Lance. I meet Lance every morning for coffee. I call him up, I'm like his human alarm clock. I wake up super early to start my day for some reason. I always have to be doing something or I'll get all antsy. So I wake him up and we go to coffee at Nordstrom's because it's only 25 cents a cup. We just hang out and talk, and that's how we start our day.
Lance is a nice guy.
I've known him since I was super young. He took me to my first skate spot outside of San Jose. I was just this little skate grommet hanging out at der Wienerschnitzel and he was all, "Do you want to go to the Fish Banks with a bunch of other guys?" It was one of the funnest days skating because I got to venture out of my little area.
