Jack Dudley and his love of the Skateboard

Jack’s one cool dude for sure! I met up with him after he’d said he would love to be featured on the site. I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to see Jack in his element and cruising down some hills at speed!

We stayed local to the area of Kent and found some spots to talk about his passions as well as shoot some footage of him in action.

Q & A

Whenever possible, I try and get a quick Q & A with featured people, so we can delve a little deeper into their interests and passions. It’s also nice to find out more about new people you come across and get a feel of their past, their aspirations and some of the quirkiness that makes it all possible.

Here’s mine and Jack’s chat together:

What is your dream job/vocation?

I’d love to to work on sport and racing cars, specifically drift cars and building them up from scratch.

Let’s forget about the one word answer, what is your passion? Be as short or as detailed as you’d like.

I love to explore new places on my longboard and anything related to skating, I’m all over it!

What got you interested in this particular passion?

Inspiration from longboard videos online.

Can you tell me about some brands/companies or products which you love?

In today’s world, we are constantly connected to apps, websites and so much more through social networks and smart phones. Which apps, websites etc do you use on a daily basis and why?

Instagram without a doubt!

What is something about yourself that you hope will change?

I’d like to get more tattoos, but nothing in terms of personality.

Where would you like to visit in the future and why?

Japan for sure, it seems like it has such a unique culture.

What’s your all-time favourite place to visit?

Cornwall. I have family there and it’s a beautiful part of the UK.

What do you think about more than anything else?

When the next adventure will be!

What is your current occupation?

I’m a part-time mechanic.

If you could describe your favourite passion in one word, what would it be?

ADVENTURE… or SKATE… it’s a tough one and both lead into each other.

How do you FEED YOUR PASSION? (Things you get up to which involve your passion in some way, large or small)?

Riding in new places and exploring areas of towns and cities I’ve never travelled to before.

What’s your favourite song right now?

Are you a creature of habit or an adventurous soul?

Adventorous for sure!

Can you give us some examples of things that have ‘amazed’ you?

I love how sometimes nature creates views and feelings that are undescribable, often in the most bizarre places.

All time favourite movie?

Inbetweeners movie… don’t judge me!

When making an entrance to a party/gathering, do you make your presence known? Do you slip in and look for someone you know? Do you sneak in quietly and find a safe spot to roost?

I sneak in and look for friends I know.

Thanks for your time Jack!
