...if you've been living in Atlanta, yet have been camped out under a rock for about the last 10 years, you may not know who Scott Wagoner is. He's a skateboarder, bartender, filmer dude, King Diamond nerd, horror movie fanatic who ran the video side of ill-fated Atlanta Hates Us. He now does his own thing called Down Right Evil. If there was ever an edit that 100% depicts the filmer and the scene he films, you're about to watch it.

...But have known about him since the LIFE Skateboards video, which is a personal favorite. I found this the other day and it seriously reminds me how rad and weird skateboarders are. Just get out there in your own thing and get it going.

I've had a lot of people ask me about Matt over the years. What's he like as a person? What's it like to film with him? How does he come up with his video stuff? It's impossible to respond without literally sitting down and talking for hours. Saying things like "He's tight." "They're fun to work on." He's fucking crazy.", doesn't give it justice. I try and briefly explain that he's a genius with the video shit. He's so far out there that it's hard to explain if you've never been around it. The person just kinda looks at me and goes, Cool man....And I don't fault them. How the fuck are you supposed to explain in less than 3 minutes a dude who is so complex and is on different brain waves than your average 19 year old wide eyed excited information soaking dumb skate kid? Well, this interview let's Matt get some of his thoughts out. Too many times we'd go filming or skating. Get whatever we were trying to get in less than an hour, then sit down for 2 hours on the curb in front of the car and talk about shit like this. Put Chris Head on the session and you might as well call it a night if you're not interested in our conversation.

I'm a fan of Wesley. The kid shreds. He's not the flamboyant loudmouth dipshit at the bars every night. He's a bit of a skate nerd mostly. I'm always drawn to those types of skaters. He ollies really damn high consistently. His FS Ollies on bank ramps remind me of some J. Wray snap. A lot of his skating reminds me of some J. Wray snaps. Being able to ollie well is arguably the most important part of skating. This part that is all filmed from the Brook Run park would be considered rare. A park that is known for a lot of flat area, low boxes and a couple of 4 stairs (unless your trying to get poolside) But yeah, Wes rips man. He's got some street stuff coming out that i'm sure I'll be super stoked on too.
