Mike Vallely took some time out of his busy schedule to answer some of the questions that you wrote in and asked him. Check out the video to see if your question made the cut.

Mike V also decided that his favorite question in the video was Will W’s: “Mike, whatup? I dig most of the s**t you spit. I am definitely old school, but I try to stay in touch. How do you feel about the current arena for skating? And do you think it is possible for these kids to feel the same about skating as you do with all the dinero and corporate games (dew tour, Xgames, commercials) being thrown in their face?”

Congrats to Will on winning the Element package. We will be doing another one of these soon with another skateboarder so check back!
