An Interview About Lizard's Deal with the Devil


Lizard's Supra deal with the devil.
It's been unclear over the last few months just where Lizard King's feet have been, but he finally signed the pact with the man downstairs to ride for Supra and already has a shoe, "The Bullet," set for release in Spring 2010. Here's a quick interview about what happened with DC and how he decided on Supra after all this time.

After Combat , what shoe sponsors were you considering?
None of 'em. Just kidding, I was on flow for DC for seven months.

You were skating Wallenberg in DCs and it looked like you were pretty much on. How long did that last? And, what made you decide Supra would be a better fit?
It's just hard when you need shoes and stickers when you're on flow. I'm trying to skate and kill sh*t and I had

to buy my own shoes some times. All the DC skaters had my back, those dudes are the sh*t, but I guess someone who calls shots at DC wasn't feeling me, didn't think kids were into me, and Supra homies have always had my back. Supra is family, the place for me to be because we got Deathwish Gs in here. It's just got way more Passion.

In your meeting with Satan, your shoe, "The Bullet," seemed like it was already set to come out. Was a pro shoe something the lured you back to Supra?
Supra homies got me a plane ticket, pulled me into a meeting, were like, "Here's your Shoe." I was like, "F**k yeah done deal." The Bullet 2010 fools. We filmed that video the next day and after the shoot I stayed in the bar.Chicks were buying me drinks, 'cause I forgot those horns were still glued to my head.

What's in store for the future?
Wreck shop in my new shoe and torture fools, ha. Just kiddin', I don't know, just want to kill it. I want the cover of Thrasher more than anything. Gonna get that for Satan. Am I allowed to say Satan on ESPN?
