Brandon “Boner” Bonner Interview

08 October 2013, 01.08 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

On his license, a medical marijuana card or even a police report his name would appear as Brandon Bonner. The skateboard industry knows him as Boner and he’s been shredding every handrail, gap, ledge and transition from Fredericksburg to Denver to Las Vegas to Los Angeles to Mexico City with passion that Lizard King would back, no doubt.

What’s the best thing about living in Fredericksburg?

I would say that the best part about living in the town of Fredericksburg is that you have a lot of adventuring to do there are a lot of ins and outs about this joint

You just had your truck painted. What color did you go with?

I had my old whip painted Matt black all stealthy like n shit bumping them splines all day

Who are your favorite rappers?

How was Mexico City? Was that your first time out of the country?

The Mexico tour with natural koncepts was an amazing experience I was very great full to see all the beautiful spots that the locals had to offer to us such amazing kids out there just ripping there hearts out! Gotta love it!

We were able to skate Miami together on a filming mission last December. Tell us about the trip.The backyard pool, etc. That was so rad skating with Danny, Paul & Koki.

The Mia get away was amazing just to get away from the nasty winter that the good old town had coming for us and just meeting amazingly talented skateboarders from all around the world and to have them be as stoked  to shred with them was sick deffenitly got a lot of homies I met up with there. And the gnarly outdoor hotel pool we got to shred was so dope we deffenitly seabed the hell out of that thing!

Tell us about Magic Bullet. It’s definitely one of the corest shops in the entire east coast.

Magic bullet is a really good locally provided shop that will for sure still be selling boards to the community for many more years to come witch in fact this last month was there 11 year anniversary so shot outs to mark Eyestone for keeping it real all these years!!

That Canadian Embassy ollie hit national news. How was that having the network drive from DC to Fredericksburg to interview you?

The interview at the local skate park that hit international was a little rediculous but very well out together everyone that was at brooks deffenitly seemed a little taken by it haha but very professional !

The NK video is dropping Spring 2014. I’ve seen your footage from a few of the last tours. How are you feeling about this part? You’re first NK part was off the hook!

I feel like my skills and diversity of my tricks might have changed a bit but I hope that I’m still bringing the pain enough to keep the Viewers as hyped as I will be about it!!

The first person in history to ollie the Canadian Embassy 21.. Congrats Boner.  Photo: Justin Reiff

Pacific Drive – Neff – East Coast VS. West Coast Shop Contest

05 December 2010, 02.12 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

round_10When I left Wisconsin at the age of 18 I drove straight to Pacific Beach, CA.  It was the best decision of my life. Hangin’ with the Pacific Drive crew influenced my skateboarding so much.  Shout outs to Cuong, Blair Alley, Bill & Jim.  Seeing the Donger, Duffy, Sheffey, Danny Way & Dyrdek skating PB often hyped me up so much it was insane!  Check out PD’s entry in Transworld Skateboardings’ battle of the shops video contest. As expected it’s sick!  Scope it here and vote for PD.  Duh.
