Who's the new guy?

Name: Lloyd J. Fisher
Age: 21
Regular/Goofy: Regs, yet I aspire to master both.
Skating since: 2002
Favorite Duluth Skate spot: Lake Place Park - An intricate plaza with views overlooking Lake Superior. Lots of cool art pieces with historical relevance. Nice ledges, cool bricks, and the 3-bloc. We're always running into interesting humans during skateboard sessions there as well. Too many funny stories...
Favorite go to trick: Ollie Impossible - Because they are in fact, possible.
Favorite food: Hot curries, spicy vegetables, sweet pastries, powerfood smoothies.. too many foods to eat. I'll answer this question more precisely after many more years of travel and experience.
Favorite coffee drink: Organic medium roast black coffee with emulsified MCT oil and/or hemp seed oil added for optimal fat burning and nutritional benefits.
Besides skating what you like to do: Chasing other dreams.. Landscape Photography is a huge interest of mine. Being able to travel to one of a kind locations around the globe, then narrowing down the location into just a few intimate compositions is just fucking cool to me. Nature is the most powerful force there is, so being able to portray that power through an image is the jam. I also love photographing wild animals and skateboarding as well. Anywhere I go I'm at home behind the lens.
Inspirations: Stephan Janoski, Dennis Busenitz, Andrew Reynolds, Lewis Marnell, Mark Gonzalez, Teddy Roosevelt, Mark Twain, Wim Hoff, Conor McGregor, and those who have chosen to tackle adversity so they can rise up for the betterment of themselves and for mankind.
Shout outs: Everyone who has skated with me at every step of my progression. My parents for allowing me to build a DIY skatepark in the driveway. Great Grandma Ann for referring to me as "The Shitkicker". The many positive years ahead of us all.
