Virginia Beach Virginia local ripper and former owner of Cardinal Skateshop has moved out west to San Diego. Kyle Berard won Tampa Am in 2000 and then Tampa Pro in 2001. Below is a little section from the interview by Mike Sinclair at ESPN Skateboarding:
What do you miss most about Virginia?
Virginia is home, the East Coast is home. I miss a lot of my friends but then again they all moved, too. Virginia is super transient, but its fun being home during the holidays. But the weather is tough.
How did you first get into cement work?
I had no construction background when I started. But everyone at Artisan skates, so I had known them prior to getting the job. I asked them for some work and made the cut.
