How does a typical day in the life of Neal Hendrix go? 

Haha, honestly I have no typical day. Recently, when I am at home (which hasn't been often) it is work for a few hours on Woodward stuff from home, and then go for a late afternoon skate at Hawks vert ramp with Lincoln Ueda and some of the guys. Also been trying to skate the Combi Pool at the Vans skatepark a bit recently


What is your favorite place you have got to visit thus far?

I love going to crazy exotic places to experience different people and cultures, but when it comes to going somewhere that I truly love and could even live there I would have to say Australia. Sydney area to be exact. Love it there


How many countries have you traveled to? Where haven’t you been that you’d like to go?

Oh man, I have no clue. Probably 40 countries or so. I've been to Europe over 100 times for skate trips, Brazil about 15 times, Australia 10 or so, and to Asia about 25 times. The 2 places on my must go bucket list are India and Cuba. Can't wait!
