Interview August 2009 by Isaac Mckay-Randozzi
I’ve never met you but I hear you’re quit the opposite of a standard “bro” type of person. Why do you go by Bro, why not Rick?Bro was what my little brother called me when he was learning to talk. My first stage dive was at a Pennywise show so maybe I am one... it was so sick I dove over everyone and landed on my head!
Do you know if Rick Howard’s real name is Broderick?I don't, but I am half Canadian.
If it was, do you think you’d gain “cool points”?It takes way more than an ollie to impress the kids these days so probably not!
Heroes?Kevin Day, Greg Carolin, Paul Savini, Ed Templeton, Jamie Thomas, Billy Childish.
5 words that describe Orchard? Boston skateboarders keeping it real
Who/what do you hate on?Hating is a waste of your time, give it up. But, I'm guilty of it. Winter, techno, and people who ask you to get a cab in the pouring rain but don't tip, that's it. I love everyone and everything else, even McDonalds.
Best skating memory?Bailing and skating a pool with my friends in Brewster in the early ’90s.
Favorite shoe of all time?Blue canvas Jamie Thomas Emericas
If you were stuck on an island with a mini ramp who are the three people that would be skating it with you? George Bush, Kevin Coakley, Lee Berman, ABD!
Shout outs? Project Pepsi, Skate Jam Plain, Boarding House, my family, my friends.
