Any medal would be good. A big gold one even better.
To me, it's about getting better every time and doing the best I can every run no matter where I am. The Olympics are going to be huge, but I don't think the Olympics are going to make or break any rider. At the end of the day, it's just another contest with just a little bit more riding on it.
Man, I hate that trick. There are times when you're just spinning and you totally lose track of where you are. You don't know where you're going to land. You only hope you're still in the pipe.
I was out at the Y a couple days ago and I was just dedicated to learning that trick.
It's going to be insane over there.
This mom snapped on me. She said, 'You get out there, and you score!' And I was just like, 'Whoa!' When someone else's mom yells at you, it's pretty intimidating.
It's exciting to go from snowboarding to skateboarding because I get to start as the underdog again.
It's kind of like a training ground, ... But I just have so much fun here. I can come here to learn new tricks during my summer, and I don't need a whole mountain for that. It's tight, fresh and new. This is the first place in the world to give the people who ride here exactly what they want.
I'm liking it here. Let's bring the Olympics to Vail. This place is good luck for me.
I think it's going to be a kind of a party night. I'm not much of a drinker, but I think I might be old enough to drink in Italy.
I'm a little overwhelmed right now. I can't explain it.
I didn't know if I would get the gold, I just knew I wanted it.
It's going to be madness next year. Honestly, it might come down to four 1080s, or three 1080s and a 1240. I don't know; I might not come next year.
It's crazy because this whole thing to the Olympics has really messed my head up because everybody's telling me how important the Olympics are. And I was like, 'whatever, just do well and go to the Olympics.' Just that having that kind of mellow attitude made me land everything. It was really soothing. I just can't wait for the Olympics now. It's been an awesome season.
I've still got some stuff up my sleeve for the Games. I don't want to let it out of the bag right now, but I definitely have something planned.
I had a cab driver that was so happy and excited to give me a ride that, when I got out to pay him, he got out and gave me a hug. (The fame) has gotten a little crazy, but I love it. I think it's cool.
My goal that day was to get a sunburn. That's all I wanted. I've been walking around with jackets on, so I skated with no shirt on. (The sunburn) hurt a little, but it was epic.
It's definitely one of the best things that's ever happened to my career. I came out here. I barely made it into finals. After that, I knew I could just do the best run I had planned.
