FINALLY SOME LOCAL MINNESOTA SKATEBOARD ACTION! CHRIS BURT RELEASED HIS THIRD (?) LOCAL VIDEO TITLED “CLEAN” LAST MONTH AND THE CLEANEST SKATER IN THE VIDEO’S PART JUST GOT UPLOADED. BRADY ALBRIGHT IS FROM THEHESH.COM’S ORIGINAL NECK OF THE WOODS, ROCHESTER MN, AKA: BUTTOWN. AFTER RELOCATING UP TO THE CITIES FOR SCHOOL A FEW YEARS AGO BRADY PUT HELLA WORK IN OUT HERE IN THE STREETS AND THIS PART SHOWS. I HAD TO ASK BRADY A FEW ?’S ON WHAT EXACTLY MAKES HIM SKATE SO CLEAN:
THEHESH.COM: WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING THE BEST DRESSED SKATER IN MINNESOTA?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: With big clean comes big responsibility… shoutout to the CSA. (Clean Skaters Association)
THEHESH.COM: WHERE DO YOU GET ALL THESE CLEAN ‘FITS FROM?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: I THRIFT ALMOST EVERY SINGLE DAY BRO! I also work at this place called Opitz Outlet so you know I get the plug on Polo. Huge shouts out to Ralph Lauren. I work at their little side chain called “The Annex” They sell super nice clothes for mad cheap because they have some sort of imperfection. Most of the time it’s something like a piece of dirt which washes right off. Pretty dope place.
THEHESH.COM: I FUCK WITH OPITZ, HOW MANY HOURS PER WEEK WOULD YOU SAY YOU SPEND THRIFTING?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: Prolly like 6-7 hours per week, but since I’ve been recovering from my broken ankle it’s probably like 10-12 or more at times.
THEHESH.COM: DOES COMING UP ON A NEW FIT GET YOU HYPED TO FILM A GNARLY TRICK?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: For sure, like digging through a thrift and finally coming across a gem is kinda the same feeling as landing a trick hahah. It definitely does help because you skate better when you know your fit is on point, FACTS.
THEHESH.COM: ANY FITS IN YOUR PART COME TO MIND THAT MADE YOU MOTIVATED TO GET THE CLIP? WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOUR TOP FIT WAS?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: I’m overall most hyped to have clips in a Glo Gang shirt.
THEHESH.COM: I WAS BOUT TO SAY! THE HESH WAS SUPER HYPED ON THE GLO GANG CLIPS! YOU GOT A DEPOP YOU WANNA PLUG?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: I got an instagram account I used to use. (@xx_homie_discount_xx) I have too much clothes now so I’ll probably start selling more on there soon.
THEHESH.COM: DOES THE PRICE GO UP ON A PIECE IF YOU GET A CLIP IN IT?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: Yes, got my own line of “distressed” Polo coming soon.
THEHESH.COM: DISTRESSED AS IN POLO GEAR YOU TOOK A FEW SLAMS IN?
BRADY ALBRIGHT: Yeeee.
