Rage: My name’s Gus, I’m a freestyle skier…what’s that about?
Gus: I hate you. I’m nervous.
Rage: How’s your summer?
Gus: It was good, I went up to Whistler for the COC, spent a week in France w/ CorUPT, and did the New Zealand open. Now I’m in Bend for the premiere.
Rage: What was the fondest part of your summer including girls?
Gus: I lost my virginity this summer. (By the way, we at Rage, don’t believe him)
Rage: What was the fondest ski moment of the summer?
Gus: I learned right side nines.
Rage: What happened last night? You nuttted on something?
Gus: We set a summer handrail w/ snow we found at the Mt Bachelor parking lot. It was a weird Z rail and I was trying to pretzel and I nutted and smashed my face on the ground.
Rage: Is that gonna make NS’s top vids?
Gus: Yes, it might.
Rage: Describe your season last year?
Gus: I started out w/ a few comps and didn’t do well. I was filming w/ my buddies and making little edits. I sent Rage a video because I really wanted to shoot w/ them. They invited me to some park shoots and I got a half segment w/ them so that’s sick.
Rage: How was it just showing up at a first park shoot and not knowing anyone?
Gus: I was scared to meet Cosco. He comes across differently from how he is. He’s scary, but relaxed. He’s gangster. He has a coul de sac haircut. I went w/ Bobby Brown so that made it easier because he’s my friend. Cosco’s just different from how he seems like he would be. He’s chill.
Rage: You’re intimidated by a 5’7, 140 pound kid from Edmonton, Canada who spends 8 hrs a day on his computer and skis for a living?
Gus: Ya, that’s the jist. I soon got over the fear. And then I was scared of Kyler.
Rage: Still scared of Kyler?
Gus: He’s nice, but he could crush me if he wanted to, so kinda.
Gus: Are we done?
Gus: Ok, cuz now I’m comfortable.
Rage: Why is your demeanor the exact opposite of Bobby Brown?
Gus: I don’t think that’s true
Rage: How are you different?
Gus: He’s relaxed and chill.
Rage: Is that why you’re hitting summer rails in Sept after skiing all summer? Elaborate?
Gus: I don’t know. Dude, I’m twitching. Bobby is relaxed, I’m ADD and always have to be doing something. He’s way more chill.
Rage: That also helps w/ your motivation right?
Gus: Ya for sure. Bobby’s real good though.
Rage: Plans for next year?
Gus: All the major comps, better results in halfpipe and slopestyle. Have a full segment w/ Rage. Opening segment would be what I want. Or closing….that’s my goal for next season.
Rage: You plan on losing your virginity right?
Rage: Any last parting words?
Gus: We summed it up, pretty much.
Rage: What sums it up?
Gus: All the questions and answers we just did.
