We’re stoked to announce UK skater James Threlfall has joined the Melon team. Check out his welcome edit and interview below!
Years Riding: 8
Sponsors: Skate Warehouse, Animal, Melon, 7Tree Skateboards, GoPro, House of Marley, Ramp Nation
I ride a couple for different things, but anywhere between 8.25 and 8.5 decks to accommodate my huge feet!
Street or Tranny:
I definitely ride more transition, but I’d never JUST ride tranny – street is super fun too. Skateboarding is so amazing because the possibilities are endless, so you should never limit yourself to one discipline or terrain.
Bath is an amazing city just to cruise around on your board, so sometimes that can be my favourite spot. But in terms of getting a session on, I really like Midsomer Norton’s park just down the road. It’s also amazing having an outdoor vert in Victoria Park in Bath. It’s pretty unique nowadays, especially in England, but sessions there really do have the best vibe on a sunny day.
Favourite Feel Good Trick: I do tre flips a lot. Maybe too much.
Current Track on Repeat:
I listen to a crazy variety of music all the time, music is definitely my second passion after skating so it’s pretty hard to pin point one track. But perhaps something by Bloc Party. I love their music.
