Steve Perdue has been traveling throughout the U.S for the past 3-4 years, skating, camping and everything else along the way. Currently living in San Francisco, the following questions we hoped would bring some insight on the upcoming Toebock video part he’s working on and what inspires this soft spoken gent. -Adam Crew

 

What is American Folklore? and what is this new Toebock video all about?
American Folklore consists of beliefs and customs, legends and tall tales that encompas or classify a particular group. It is also the name of the next Toebock video in the works. of course the video will mainly involve skateboarding, but it will also portray somewhat our way of living, experiencing new places and people. the stories are almost endless, but hopefully the video will give people a general idea about the Toebock Folklore.

 

Most of us know what a (Record) Single is .. What is this ” Steve Perdue Single”?
Its a collection of somewhat new and old footage we were not going to use in (Toebock ) American Folklore, but didn’t want it to go to waste.

 

Where are some of your favorite places you been through while working on this part?
Our most recent trip, the Toebock Olympic Fireside the North West has to be my favorite place ive been so far. It is refreshing to be deep in the forrest with friends/family beverages food and the general idea to get weird but also experience and respect such a beautiful place.

Best thing about living in San Francisco?
Being able to bomb around the city, for such a small city i feel like i have not even scraped the surface of exploring this place. Good people to skate with, beautiful girls! and a pretty friendly/ open vibe here it seems.

How has living with Travis Knight (better known as Trava Daddy) taken an affect on this current project?
Many stories have been added to the Folklore because of Trava Daddy. He is definitely a good person to have around for good and bad influences. Late nights are always an option with trava, which can be a con while working on this video part. It can be a pro also depending on what we get ourselves into. I’d say the pros’ are grater than the cons. Never a dull moment.

Single most influential thing in your life?
Right now traveling is the most influential thing in my life. i find it hard to stay put for too long or do the same thing over and over. It is good for me to keep a good balance of things.
