Destin came in 3rd place at Best Foot Finals this year. He's 15, hails from Las Vegas and is already sponsored by Birdhouse Skateboards, Bones, Pharmacy Las Vegas, Honey Brand Co & FP Insoles. We asked him a few questions while we were on the road during the winners trip to San Francisco...
What's like being the youngest finalist?
Destin: I don't really think of the age when it comes to skating I just think skateboarding is skateboarding no discrimination or anything we are all skateboarders but it definitely feels pretty good being young and making it with the older dudes out there
Had you been to California before this trip to Finals?
Destin: Yes I have been to California before. My favorite part of California has to be either LA or San Diego cause I just really like the vibes there and just the skate scene is really good in those places.
What do you do after skating?
Destin: Fuck bitches and get money nah I'm playing.
What’s the worst trouble you’ve gotten into for skateboarding?
Destin: Well I never really got in a really bad situation for skating. They all kinda been the same ol’ same ol’ like the basic kick out and threaten to call the cops. But recently, when I was on the Zumiez Best Foot Forward tour going to Joshua we all stopped at this spot called Radio korea [JKWON] and you could only skate that spot on Sundays but me and everyone else just skated it any ways. it was so crazy cause all of us just were skating it like nothing was wrong and toward the end before we were leaving, I was filming a Snapchat and this random lady starts walking toward me and tries to hit my phone out of my hand and I dodged and I look back and she's still walking and she screamed at me "get the fuck outta here." So yeah that was one of those kick outs / getting in trouble while skating moments.
For all things Destin, give him a follow on Instagam: @DestinWatts.
