Catching Up With Austyn Gillette

Posted by Route One on 1st December 2016

The ever handsome Austyn Gillette gets the Transworld interview treatment in this 'afternoon with...' that covers everything from his double knee surgeries to his addition to the WKND Skateboards team.

Kicking things of with his memories from the recent Huf excursion to NYC (that produced his epic Transworld cover), talking of two hour trick battles and day on / day off planning, before moving on to story behind his well documented knee problems, Austyn talks candidly and his words are accompanied by some top class referential archive footage. Transworld have never been the types to mess about when it comes to knocking a clip together and they really don't disappoint with this one!

After chatting about his influences and the strength he draws from the experiences of AVE and Reynolds we finally get to the meat of the piece and his unexpected (yet exceedingly rad) to the quirky fun of WKND, following the sad demise of former sponsor 3D.
