How does a typical day in the life of Jason Thurtle go? When I wake up in the morning I’m home schooled,  so I just get it out of the way then a go to my parents skatepark and skate all day.

What is the weirdest encounter you have had while on the road? When I was on a plane people were asking for my autograph.

Why do you choose Triple 8 for your protective gear needs? I choose it because I have banged my head numerous times and when I’m wearing Triple Eight helmets I get right back up.

Words to live by? Eat, skate live, sleep.
