Default KARL POYNTER Q&A.



Hey guys, here's Karl's Q&A. I figured he'd make for an interesting thread since he's so young and has been getting coverage for so long and is already pro for Shadow and Sunday. I met him and rode with him for a week while filming for the DVD and he's definitely a nice guy. Enjoy!

Ive heard somewhere that youve been riding the same odyssey reloader for years. How has it lasted for so long? Is it just luck, or do you work on it a lot?

Your part in 'Shook: Its On' was sweet, by the way

Hey Karl, I was just curious: How much slack do you run in your freecoaster?

Karl, whats going on man??

Since you are one in a small group of well know riders that rides a freecoaster, I was wondering what your motive was behind riding one and how long you have been freecoasterin'? Your riding is always insane to watch!!

if you had to classify yourself as a certain style, what would you say? considering you have no brakes and 4 pegs, it would be more street. but you do a lot of good park stuff with your freecoaster...
