Sage Elsesser – Last Words

Sage Elsesser is a calm guy. Especially after a puff on a herbal cigarette. But sometimes a skateboard journalist comes around the corner right in that moment and wants to ask some questions. That’s how it happend on the Fucking Awesome/Hockey Tour, which also came to Stuttgart. But we still got some answers, although we asked some pretty weird tumblr-questions. Sorry Sage.
