So bro, you are the first new rider to be put on Dimension for 6 years since David La Rotta.  How does it feel to join this legendary team?

Dude I’m still thinking about whats happened.   Just crazy to be a part of it.

Did you ever think you’d join them so quickly?

No I didn’t because I thought it’s one of the best streetboard teams in the world. I was really suprised that they asked me….. Dude I’m in a streetboard team with legends; Sergi Gotti …Now I’m really proud of it and I hope I fill all the expectations from Dimensions because its a honour for me to be in it

What do you expect from Dimension yourself goin’ forwards. They seem to have been quiet, but it looks like things are hotting up again?
 
Yeah I think for Dimension it’s a new beginning and I’m glad that I am a part to help the company to gettin’ more up to date.. Yeah I really believe that the upcoming time will be sick. I expect that in the coming times Dimension will support the riders better then any time before.
Man. I think you first came on my radar was last year at London Calling when you crashed at True Skool Mansions. How long have you been riding?
Since I bought my first highland flare 50 streetboard I think I was 12 or 13 years old, but I learned it on an old plastic board that I borrowed from a friend. I can’t remember how it was called.
So like 6 years. Bang. How old were you when Left for Dead came out ? (2005)
I was 9.  For sure it was before I Start riding streetboard.
For sure. So you have a nickname…Mango Junior. How did that come about?
I got it in Cali on the Red Pen Strapped In and What tour. We were together in the kitchen and there was a girl her Name is Shannon, she asked who I am and I answered hey I’m Mario and she didn’t get it and asked Mango? Everyone starting with laughing and I think Bob (Ismael Calvo) told her that Mango is a fruit and not a name.  The Junior come about that I always skate and Film with Thomas Kienle and everyone said that Thomas is my father so they called me Mango Junior such a stupid story Haha.
Papa Kienle!!!! The Legend!  So you are killing it at street but also you’ve been doing the Vert Alert contest. What do you prefer to ride?
Street for sure I only do this contest to get in the Woodward I think there is a Street section too.  Haha no both is streetboarding and I have fun in skating vert and also in Street.
You’ve been filming for the Ositos Video. How’s your section going ?
It’s hard to catch up the other guys but it’s still working. I only filmed for it half a year. It’s not that easy when you want a perfect video before it Pops out.
Yeah man. I always remember a singer saying an album is never finished, the release date just comes.  Same with a section.  What other sponsors do you have?
