Favourites: Ben Nordberg

12:34 28th February 2009 by Sidewalk Magazine

This weeks list of favourite things in the whole wide world comes from Baths very own high profile pikey type, Mr Ben Nordberg. Jah bless etc – now read on…


Way to start the day: Coffee and a cigarette! And a bacon sandwich.

Skatespot: Stalin Square. Only skated it once and it was too fun, that was 2 years ago when we were in Prague for the Mystic Cup.

Skatepark: Stockholm indoor park. Actually, fuck that. Bath park, couldn’t fault it.

Song to listen to when skating: Sizzla featuring Capelton – ‘Vibes’ or new one – Katchafire – “Collie Herb Man” Standard!

Skate video: Tilt Mode Army – “Man Down”. One of first videos I watched. Think it was good way to start skating, just fucking around but with some sick skating as well.

Movie: “Don’t be a Menace to South Central…”

Band (or artist): Sizzla

Album: “Chant Down Babylon” or “The Journey” – Sizzla. There’s loads more though.

Person: Powley – it’s a love/hate relationship, haha. We’ve had a lot of funny times and I owe alot to him. He’s still a cunt, though!

Material Possession: My iPhone, until I get a MacBook – my current laptop is a piece of shit.

Thing about living in Bath: You don’t get any shit from anyone, and nice surroundings.

Way to wind Powley up: Mess his house up, works every time!

None skating pass-time: Swimming.

Bath skater: Kris Vile, he’s a good mate as well. So many others though. Chris Oliver, Ross…

Skate trip to date: Copenhagen in the summer with WESC was fucking sick! Croatia with Vans…the list is too long!

Time in your life: Last year – it was so hectic but amazing at the same time. The present is quite good as well, haha!

Special move in a game of SKATE: The switch front foot impossible normally works, not too consistent though…

Comedy YouTube clip: Scarlet takes a tumble!

Board, ever: My current one, it’s working nicely.

Memory from the other weeks trip to Munich: Rob Smith on the metro or Scotty trying to throw a snowboard of a clubs roof. There are lots more…

Quote from the Munich trip: “What do you guys make of Bear Grylls? That guy’s out of control…” Raemers.

Thing to waste money on at petrol stations: Cigarettes, Coca Cola, crisps, chocolate, shit magazines and what ever else there is!
