Representing Moonshine in the UK is Christopher Hudson and here’s what he had to say.
The worst injury you’ve seen skateboarding or have suffered yourself?
What’s the most important thing when shopping for a Skateboard?
Are you pro or against Skateboarding being in the Olympics?
I’m all for skateboarding going in the Olympics, I just hope that they have the right people competing and the right people judging and commentating. I’m not sure what aspects of skating will be in the Olympics, I think bowl or vert should be at the top of the list as its a lot more impressive to watch than say street skating, but that’s just my opinion.
Other than Back to the Future what’s the best skateboarding scene in a movie?
Tell me a little bit about the history of the brand and how you got involved?
He needed someone in the UK to push the brand this side of the world and I was very interested. I liked the fact that it was vert skaters that would be on the team and it was good timing as I was thinking about opening a skate shop in my home city of Lincoln.
I got involved almost immediately, started printing some clothing and found a new deck supplier in the states ( Pennswood MFG ) and that was it. The first deck order was for 150 decks which seemed really big at the time. I’m now waiting on the 4th delivery from Pennswood so things have really picked up and we’re getting a lot of attention all over the world. It’s been a massive whirl wind and in the last year and half things have just gone from strength to strength. We have some of the best vert skaters in the world riding for us, the brand is in about 20 shops throughout the UK, numerous shops in Europe are very keen to stock them and distribution in the states is all happening. It’s still the very early stages of the company but we’re having fun and I’m getting to skate a lot so I’m very happy.
