Face Time: Timmy Knuth


Born and raised in Florida, Timmy Knuth came up in the way that most people outside of the California skateboard bubble do: through skating in contests. And with this came the inevitable stigma of being a "contest kid." With his 21st birthday only a couple months away, Knuth is no longer a kid, and with his second video part in a little over a year about to drop on Monday (his first came out in World Industries' online video, "It's Your World" in February) it is pretty obvious that Timmy Knuth is just a ripping skater. We caught up with him to talk road food, contests vs. street, and how to properly pronounce his last name.
