Firsts – Silas Thurman
Silas, Tell us about the first:
Pro you ever rode with:
CD you ever bought:
Seriously I can’t remember and I never bought that many CDs, but sometime in the very early 90’s before Austin Pastura was born I bought Guns and Roses “Use Your Illusion.”
Car you ever had:
1983 Honda accord burgundy stick shift.
Time you drank “a little too much”:
On my 21st birthday… Just kidding. 16 a six pack of MGD dancing to “don’t go chasing waterfalls” with my older cousins hot friend.
Overseas trip you took for wakeskating:
South Korea with Gregg Necrason.
Athlete you ever sponsored as a team manager:
Matt Manzari that little rascal.
Injury from wakeskating:
Nothing broken yet, knock on wood. Just bad bruises and cuts.
Email address you ever had:
I still have the same yahoo one I’ve had now I have a remote one too.
Ed. note – (we were hoping for something along the lines of “Wakesk8threeshuv@yahoo.com for that last one)
Check you ever cashed from wakeskating:
Nationals 04 or 05 it was not a lot.
Song you put on when you get in the car:
I mix it up. There’s a good mix in my truck a little MJ, Paul Simon, that questions weird. I don’t put the same song on every time I get in the car. If I did though it would be Beat it by MJ. It’s so good I think they probably lost it when they made that beat.
Time you and Henshaw got into it and why:
We were talking wake politics with Greenwood and we all had a few beers and at the end of the night the Canadian in Kev came out so we slammed around in the house then into the garage. Don’t tell him, but I rolled his ass up.
