Talking With The Team #1 - Keiran Zimmerman
How old are you and who are you sponsored by?
20 years old and I'm sponsored by Sk8 Skates and Emerica.
How long have been on Sk8 Skates?
I think I've been on for a year and a half.
How did you get on the team?
I got on the team last year at the 1987 premiere. Basically Colin called me down onto the stage to help with giving away some product. When we were done I was walking up the stairs and he called it out on the mic that I was on the team and had a full part in the video. I was so stoked.
What made you want to ride for Sk8 Skates?
I have known everyone on the team since I was a tiny kid and I was always watching them skate. I looked up to them, and wanted to be on the team since. I went on a camping / skate trip with the team and seeing how everyone was good buddies really stoked me out, it really made me want to be a part of the team.
What's the gnarliest trick to go down in Winnipeg?
Kyle Beaulieau's front feeble on the Fort Garry hotel rail is definitely one of my favorites.
Who would you want to put on the team next?
Devon Tait because he reps the shop so much and is always out skating the streets and killing it.
Who's your favorite Winnipeg skater?
Best Sk8 Skates memory?
The entire night of the 1987 premiere was so rad, oh and the whole trip we did to Thunderbay. That trip was insane, Kyle gave me a black eye.

Legit since 1987.
Sk8 Skates is more than just a skate and snowboard shop, it is a family of individuals committed to strengthening the Winnipeg skateboard and snowboard scene.
