Our Interview With Jens Anker Hovland
SHIT®: Why did you begin skateboarding?
Jens: I started skateboarding when I was seven, the reason I started was because my mom bought me a skateboard. And from that day on I just kept on going. I remember my first kickflip, it was outside my house and I tried it so many times. When I finally landed I was so excited just smiling and screaming in joy.
SHIT®: How is the skate community where you live?
Jens: The community is awesome, right now i’m the event manager for the local club. We probably have the biggest amount of girl skaters in Norway.
SHIT®: What is your big skateboarding dream?
Jens: My biggest dream is to travel around, make new friends, skate, film videos and just be happy😃
SHIT®: Who is your biggest supporter in skateboarding?
Jens: My biggest supporter is my fiancé, no doubt!
SHIT®: What music do you listen to while skateboarding?
Jens: I listen to everything while skating, for example hubbabubbaklubb, Big L, Sex Pistols. Just depends on what im skating and how im skating.
SHIT®: What is your favorite SHIT Magazine article?
Jens: My favorite article is probably The Ban on Skateboarding in Norway, because it’s an awsome story about skating and the progression in Norway
SHIT®: What gifts do you think you get for christmas?
Jens: You never know what you get for christmas, but I’m hoping for a new Shit deck and a new set of trucks.
