Mark Gonzales interviews artist, writer and long-time skate buddy, Jocko Weyland.

In true DIY style, Mark Gonzales interviews artist, writer and long-time skate buddy, Jocko Weyland.

A few months ago, skate pioneer and contemporary artist Mark Gonzales showed up at our London office with a head full of mad ideas. The result was One Week, One Show, a twenty-four-hour affordable art show at 71a Leonard St – home of HUCK magazine – featuring work produced in the space of a week.

We then invited Gonz to guest-edit an issue of the mag and he compiled a list of people he digs from badass auteur Larry Clark to punk art baller Raymond Pettibon. It also featured artist, skater, writer, ’zinemaker and old skate buddy Jocko Weyland.

A couple of hours after the final story for the mag was filed we received a surprise email from Gonz – ‘interview with jocko for gonzales guest editor’ – featuring a thirty-minute video between the two friends.

Conversation flows from the iconic Del Mar skate ranch in the 1980s to weird boards in Washington Square Park, parties at Max Fish on the Lower East Side and the current state of skate everywhere.
