Kat Williams Interview (2011)
How were you introduced to skateboarding and what got you started?
Normal kind of story, my brother used to skate and I looked up to him so I always wanted to do it. Then my friend Hanna got a board, so we used to muck around on that until Mt. Barker, where I grew up, got a park. So it just kinda happened.
Do you remember what your first setup was?
Hahaha! $15 dollar board from cheap as cheaps. The bearings didn't roll and it had a red fast car on it.
Were there any early influences on your skating?
Yeah, my first would have to be homies Greg, Dylan and Don. Then I guess same as everyone, friends I skated with mags and movies.
What is the best and worst thing about your hometown?
Worst thing is probably having to work everyday, so makes me to tired to skate cause I'm a sook. Haha! Best thing is everything.
Besides skateboarding, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Go to the beach, chill with friends, play music and watch movies.
What is your typical day like?
Wake up, get ready for work in 5 minutes, run out the door, scooter to work, hang off buildings all day, go home, have shower, eat food, go on the internet and if its a good day go for a roll.
