Author: SBC

Final Exam: Layne Treeter

Sponsors: Stepchild, Union, ThirtyTwo, Etnies, Ashbury, The Source, Salmon Arms, Dope Industries

Hometown: Edmonton, Alberta.

PART A: FILL IN THE BLANKS

In a parallel universe, I’d be traveling the world since there is so much to see.

When the Dope crew is getting fucked up, it’s usually dangerous and people get hurt. 

When I’m not in a smoke-filled room, boarding and good times take me to new highs. 

Hailing from Edmonton has always been dope, and I’m stoked to be from there.

When the snow melts I’m bummed, but summertime is when the girls are looking best and will keep my mind off boarding

D.A.R.E. didn’t really work for me because them cops are crooked. 

Outside of rolling with Dope crew, I always like to shred with John Graff, Dylan Vachon, Suppa, Matt Tam, Dave Schmidt, Spencer Rennie, all the Poco homies, Bird Gang and Will Surtees, Pat Samson, burrrks, Cam Taylor, Cody Sheps, all the Snakes, Keenan Filmer, Brennan Kurchak, Will Fraser, Dale Bailey, and all The Source homies because we mob deep. 

Back in the day, LSD was legal and it’s great.

Last concert I went to was Roger Waters, The Wall and it was crazy. If there’s anyway you can get an opportunity to see it, I strongly suggest going.

My average Monday, these days, consists of great times, but a weekend is just as good.

In five years, there could be hover boards.

Average number of times the term “Duh” is used in a day has lost count, and it’s only noon

If I had to choose one of the Dope crew to date my sister, it would be Casey Jones
