Favorite Neil Young album?

In & Out, Shake Shack, or Five Guy’s?

Worst injury?

Can you tell the story of your ender in 917 2? It was fucked.

Do you have a shoe or color way in the works?

Hey, thanks for doing this.

917 has gone through some roster changes frequently, are there any new guys that might get the bump up to officially on the team?

Does the current team have any input on who gets on?

Do you like strawberry milk?
Anyone remember tech deck dudes?

Hey Cyrus given your unique approach to skateboarding heavily skated New York spots, would you rather pee out a marble or poop out a softball?

your 39th x Ocean (Manhattan Beach) kickflip and backside flip were beautiful.

As you know, nobodies kickflips look like that naturally, who did you look up to inspiration wise when learning to do them like that?

What was the session like for your second last trick in 917 #2

How much input do you have with 917 graphics and team-wise? Does Alex let you guys do whatever?

What’s Alex like as a boss?
Skating for Stussy and Nike. Have you ever met Lance? Any stories you can share about Lance?

What’s your current set-up?

If you could choose anyone to be on 917, who would you pick?

Loved the MSG back smith, how hard was it to actually find a time to attempt it during the day given the insane amount of foot traffic at that spot.

How was riding for Hopps?

Any chance we'll see you on an Atlantic Drift trip?

How is Logan as a tm? What are his best/worst tm’ing qualities?

What would you do for a Klondike bar?

You have a very distinct looking 360 flip, is your technique for doing them significantly different than most?

Hey Cyrus,
I think we have the same accountant.
I really enjoy your skating. Kickflip secret please?

Hi Cyrus –– thanks for taking the time.

What's your favorite flatground trick to do that's never popped up in any of your footage?

What's your favorite nature spot in Colorado?

What defunct spot that you never got to skate, from any point in history, would you choose to skate if possible?

Please share with us some cool trick that you've seen Aaron Loreth do off camera that we didn't get to see.

Are you currently working on a new part? Does 917 have anything planned or in the works right now?

Favorite non-"SB" Nike shoe to skate?

Boring but interesting: what's your set-up like? Do you care about wheelbase on a board? What's your wheel size? Do you do any modifications beyond stock to your trucks, even just like after market bushings?

how did matt king end up being involved with the last 917 video? seemed very random
you'll likely never see it cause he rarely does them, but the only other person i've seen that tre flips like you is griffin gass
how's it been going on trips with "upriver" guys like nyjah?
do your hairlines give you and max superpowers? waiting for mine to kick in
did you go to pratt/what did you major in? how did you balance school and skating/filming?
when the fuck are you gonna get off independent and ride for venture?

Hi Cyrus,

Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. Your parts in the 917 videos are some of my all-time favourites, and I’m hoping you can answer a couple of my questions about them:

1. You’ve had a couple of tricks at the wallie manual spot in New York - my favourite was the wallie fs 180 fakie manual fakie flip in the first 917 video. Which one are you most stoked on?

2. I really like the first song you skated to in the 917 II video. Did you pick the song, and what are some other tracks by blair that you’d recommend we check out?

Hi Cyrus, thanks for doing this.

As a millennial who has moved to Brooklyn, what actions have you personally taken to combat your impact of gentrification?

Why do fools fall in love?

Any new guys joining 917?

Have you had offers from other board companies since being on 917?

If you see this in time:

Where did your Elite Squad part go? How do you feel about putting in months of work for a video part that'll literally disappear after three years?

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?
I heard about those MSG attempts more recently but I don’t follow Bill. Must have spent 20 minutes scrubbing his Instagram for them but no luck. Can anyone link it here?
