We met Sal in Santa Monica at 6 a.m., loaded a ramp into a truck and took it to the beach. Apparently it’s just what he does. He’s that psyched. After some jump-ramp punts we sat down and spoke to him about everything from the worst part about being a pro skater to stingrays. What he says is as classic as his style on a skateboard.
He has a maneuver named after him (Sal Flip). His name is on one of the most famous skate shoes ever released by Etnies (the Etnies Sal 23). He’s skate legend through and through. And the dude can tell a story.
