Interview:

What is your full name, your age, and where do you come from?
Jimmy Wilkins. I’m from Columbus, Ohio but living in San Diego

How long have you been skating?
I think about 13 years

Which skaters inspired you the most growing up, and which inspire you today?
Alex Perelson is definitely someone I’ve looked up to for a very long time. Sam Beckett and Chris Miller to name a couple more but the list could go on and on.

What does your perfect day look like?
Just skating with the homies.

What are you bumping on the jambox at a good session?
 I listen to a lot of different stuff so I don’t really care what’s playing as long as it’s loud.

How do you feel about Instagram/social media and skateboarding?
I can’t really get into it. I like watching edits and full lengths and looking at mags, just feels more like skateboarding to me.  I feel like its like quantity over quality when it comes to social media and I hate always being on my phone.

What is a bad habit you need to kick?
Stressing

Favorite place skateboarding has taken you, and place you want to travel to the most?
I love Copenhagen and Japan. In both places the people rule, the skate scene rules, and the food rules.

How did you get your spot on Lakai?
I started getting shoes through Matt Milligan. He used to judge the Dew Tour vert contest and I think Mike Crum introduced me to him.

Who is your favorite Lakai rider, past or present?
I’m a huge Raven fan.

What do you think you would be doing if you weren’t skating for a living?
Fuck I have no idea. I’d probably be wondering around aimlessly

Favorite thing about riding for Lakai?
Legendary company, best people.

Any last words?
Lakai or die
