Funk Outta Here

Tristan Funkhouser

As seen in issue #145, Baker's Tristan Funkhouser is obviously a gnarly and fearless skater. It's hard to comprehend some of these clips: massive drops with landings that are barely wide enough for his board; speedy downhill lines with stylish powerslides thrown in for good measure. Plus, he has an increasing tendency to just wing it and do tricks ultra-late, sprinkling a little extra T-Funk flavor on every trick up until the very last millisecond. As he sees it, it's never too late to add a little extra Funk.
