“Unofficial" Pals Questions - Cyrus Bennett
« on: October 17, 2020, 11:16:37 AM »
Meeting Cyrus tomorrow, ask away. Will make a post before filming begins marking the cutoff. Keep in mind guests can skip over questions so try to keep the questions good and the troll questions to a minimum.

Name: Cyrus Bennett

Known for: 917, Stussy, 360 flips, Chilly Bean, Trust Fall, How Original, Telluride CO, Hopps, Polar, Best Kickflip

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGc4cRyBZVl/

Edit: Here you guys go, hope you enjoy. Cyrus was rad and am still surprised he agreed to do this considering he’s pretty shy. He didn’t hold back and was very honest. Also shout out to Johnny Wilson for lending me some clips for the interview.

What the hell happened to your car?

Tell us about your living situation when you lived by the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

In your Stussy part, why was that guy calling you “Chilly Bean”?

Tell us about your going pro party.

How many times has Dill tried to poach you and Max from 917?

What's it like being pro for a company that's so loosely managed like 917? Is Alex heavily involved, or does it feel like he's over it?

Big fan, btw. Your Elite Dunk or whatever it was called was one of my favorite shoes ever.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Hey Cyrus, big fan. Here's some random questions.


You rode for a shop as a teen and got Element flow through it, but quit the shop because it was wack. What was wrong with it?

What do you think are some cringe-inducing ways that skateboarding has been portrayed in mainstream media? Could be an ad, a TV show, whatever.

This relates to BF's question, what did you think of AO half-joking about being Fucking Awesome's talent scout?

You ever help Jerry Mraz resurrect a spot?

Did you graduate college? I thought I read that 917 had lika high amount of degrees, if so what'd you major in?
Also you got crazy killer eyes when yer fully going for it, is that an intentional thing?
Who's got the worst push in skating?

Thanks for doing this Cyrus, you're one of my absolute favorite skaters out there right now.  :)

What's the most absurd thing you have seen Max do on a skateboard that wasn't caught on video?

Any funny Genisis Evans stories?

Which videos get you most hyped to go skate nowadays?

Would you consider yourself an introvert? If so, does that ever get in the way of being a well known professional skater and in the spotlight?

Was it painful to get so close to getting a cover only to have your twin brother Cryus snag it at the last minute?

Has your luck gotten any better since mamas boys?

Do you follow skate media, keep up with what goes on, or are you disengaged?

Can you explain your relationship with Bill Strobeck? Is there a reason he was blurred out in your 917 part? How did you feel when he posted Tyshawn’s kickflip front board attempts at MSG days after the Nike video dropped with a snarky caption?

On your Nike SB team page you said the Portmore II was your favorite skate shoe, was that a troll or is that genuinely your favorite shoe from Nike?

Your ender in 917 2 was crazy insane, what was the feeling like rolling away from that and did you even realise you got onto the second rail? That was so quick!

Is it true none of you believed the Australia trip was going to happen, and even when you guys were at the gate ready to board, you were still all skeptical?

Have you been able to decipher a text from Rhino yet?

Big fan , I have a couple recommendation questions. Can be an all time fav, or something you've enjoyed recently...

Musician?
Film?
Artist?
Pro?
City to visit?
City to skate in?

Many thanks for bringing us consistently good and timeless footage.

Hey Cyrus I’m a huge fan

What medium do you use for your art? Is there a new 917 series by you in the works?

Any projects with nike in the works?

Whats the secret to your insane kickflips?

Tips for 180 fakie manny? You inspired me to learn them but I’m still not very consistent

Thanks g

Did you personally pick those two Melvins songs from your first 917 part? I love that Dale Crover EP.

Do you get involved much in the final edit of your parts or do you just leave it to whoever is in charge of the project?

Would you rather fight Sean Sheffey or ride for Revive for the rest of your skateboarding career?

Do you ever look at SLAP? Do you think most pros are lying when they say they don’t?

Also why Stussy??

stussy makes high quality clothing and isn’t made by chinese slave labor like your favorite “core” brands with shitty fabrics . that’s my guess
dont shalom me if you don't know me.
