“JetSetting” with Sam Williams via SUAS

December 31, 2010

SUAS: What’s up Sam and what’s going on in your Life right now? Tell me something good my brother!
Well my man it seems like positivity and perseverance. A lot of good things seem to be going on and I’m surrounding myself with some great individuals.

SUAS: Positivity is definitely the key to breeding excellence…Recently, you seem to be all over the place! Every time I see contest edits you always seem to be in the mix somewhere. How in the world are you able to travel so much and can I have some of your frequent flyer miles?
Well, I get some help from my sponsors and them. I also work at this club called “Marquee”, some of you guys have been my guests there and boom, there u have it jetsetting. I love to travel, there is no greater feeling then to wake up and be somewhere different. I love it and I also love to see all the homies at the comps skate and chill!

SUAS: I didn’t forget about those frequent flyer miles so I’ll take those from you in person. Lately, I have been seeing a new fire inside of you and I am loving it. Who or what is inspiring you at the moment to progress even further with your skating?
The new fire you see LB is the fire of loving what I do and being scared I’m not gonna have enough time to do it, so I try to do my best cuz u never know when ur not gonna be able to. A lot of us wake up and instantly we are adults with bills and responsibilities. We all just need to learn how to slow down and make the best out of any situation like when we were kids.

December 28, 2010

Blade or Die has published it’s newest Blader Digest article listing the best of 2010 with New York City taking first place as the best skate scene of the year. “Back in the day, Ryan Jacklone, Dave Ortega, and others ruled the streets of New York City with attitude and fierce style. Today, skaters like Franco Cammayo, Austin Paz, Ramelle Knight, Jon Ortiz, and the unstoppable force that is the living shred legend known as Billy O’Neill. That doesn’t even include those unknown skaters that are working their asses off on a regular basis to pull hard every day. You may not know them now, but there’s a good chance you might soon. At the heart of the action are media like Art of Rolling (which now is printed and ready for your subscription) and the always busy blog I Roll NY” – Blader Digest.
