Flip Am, Andrew Langi, is seriously gnarly on a skateboard. Street and all kinds of tranny, including vert…Andrew isn’t afraid to get down on just about anything you put in front of him.
Is Langi ridiculously good on a skateboard? Yep. But what is this dude really about? Have a look at how he got down with some What’s and get yourself a rough idea.
What happened to your front tooth? I lost it three years ago trying to Nollie Flip the Chino Four Block.
What do you prefer to skate…Transition or Street? I like both. I started out skating tranny, then like a year later I got a board and started skating street.
What Vans do you skate in? I skate in the Chukka Lows and Half Cab Pros…Two best shoes in the biz.
What’s it like being the tallest dude on Flip? I don’t feel different, but it’s cool i guess. I think I’ the tallest on every sponsor I have.
What trick doesn’t work for you? Any flip in trick on a ledge. I don’t like ledges very much. Ha!
What’s you mom’s best homemade dish? Macaroni and cheese with pork ribs or steak and garlic mashed patatoes.
What’s the essential food spot to hit? Well if you want a deli sandwich, then Prima Deli is the spot. But if you want a nice sit down meal, well PF Changs kills it.
What’s your 3 favorite all-time skate videos? I grew up watching Hot Chocolate, Yeah Right! and The DC Video. Those videos still get me hyped to go skate all the time, so these are definately my top three.
What’s your dream sponsor? I think all my sponsers are dream sponsors. I’m very lucky to be where I’m at. I have no complaints.
What would you do if you could never skate again? I dont want to know, nor do I ever want to find out, so im gonna press the skip button on that one. Ha!
What’s something about you that nobody knows? I love Taylor Swift. Ha! Now everybody knows I would marry her in a heartbeat. Don’t judge me.
What’s your weakness? I don’t know if I’m allowed to say it, but it’s a specific female body part. I think thay’s every guys weakness tho. Ha!
What’s worse, slamming on vert on or slamming on street? For me it would be street, especially the rough ones.
What’s the best way to die? When you’re old and in your sleep…Nice and peacful.
What’s your favorite LRG teammate to room with on tour? Everyone is awesome, but definately Adelmo, he’s the best fa sure.
