Sammy Baca: "Get on the grime".
It's the shit.
Is that where your entire clique's from?
How'd you get on Baker and Altamont?
At Brooklyn Projects. I thought it was a joke or something. I didn't know for a little bit, and then they gave me boards.
Was Pig wood just a big costume team?
Me and Slash always hold it down. He's from Vista.
That dude's alright by me.
That dude's the shit. He's my favorite skater.
Why did Pig go out of business?
'Cause Beagle quit.
What was your first tat?
I was 16; it said "Dirty Business."
What is Dirty Business? I've seen that shit everywhere. Does that just mean get it where you get it, raw dogging the whole deal?
Yep, pretty much.
How old are you now?
Do you feel weird about the Satan tat?
Oh, luck no.
Does your weed tat make you a hippie?
What? Hell no. Fuck no, I ain't no hippie.
What's your worst tat?
What's it say on your wrist?
Things are looking up. Does your mom see that stuff? What's she say?
I heard she likes to party.
Oh, fuck yeah, dude. Me and her hold it down. She's a homie.
Do you guys gamble together out in Vegas?
No. We don't go out on the town, but we get wasted at the house sometimes.
Where's your pops at?
I think that fool lives in Oxnard. I don't know. I haven't seen that fool in ... never.
What are you going to do when you see him?
Call him out, of course.
What was your trip to Oz with Baker like?
It was the shit, dude. Hit up Gotham City, all kinds of shit. Just got wasted the whole time, basically.
How many times did you get laid?
Oh, dude! I hit this like 55-year-old chick. She was so fucking beat. It was funny. She took me back to her house, this big-ass house. It was great. She gave me some Jose Cuervo.
Some Jose Cuervo and the next thing you know it's the dirty business. Who's the best skater out of Vegas?
My homie Muska Matt. He hasn't come out of Vegas, but he's about to.
Describe the Desert Breeze park; why's it awesome?
It's the shit because it's tight tranny, long-ass spine, extensions, and all the goodness.
How do you combat the heat out there? Just kick it inside until it's nice, then go out at night?
No, I head out in the day.
Tell me about the first time you joined the Mile High club.
Oh! Random, dude. I was sitting next to this chick. She said what up, and asked, "What are you doing?" I said, "Trying to get drunk." She was like, "Oh, me too!" So we got wasted, and then handled it.
Who headed into the toilet first?
I told her to go in there first.
Under what conditions do you wet the bed? Obviously hammered out of your mind?
Dude, I was doing that lately for some fucking reason. One time, not recently, but I slept in a sleeping bag, and you know how sleeping bags are kind of waterproof so it doesn't soak in there? I was in like a fucking cocoon of piss, dude. I thought I was sweating, but then my hair and shit was wet, too.
Is it weird to be a wasteoid around Reynolds when he's already passed through that stuff?
Oh, no. He's fucking cool I don't feel awkward at all.
I heard a girl got a Sammy Baca tat. How do you feel about that?
Oh, no, that was my sister. She got our last name, "Baca," on her arm. But she was at the place trying to make fun of me.
What's the best way to survive without any cash?
Bum money. Yeah, dude, get on the grime.
Tell me the story about your battle with the triple kink double ledge boardslide.
It took like three times. Had to go back, but that shit was tight.
Did you get rinsed every which way?
No, surprisingly I didn't. I was so surprised. It was the first time ever. I've tried to skate a million kinks and I never landed anything, ever. I always just fell on my neck or got sacked. It's weird.
Who are your five favorite bands, Sammy?
Sabbath, Nihilist, Metalliea, of course.
Finally, to all the people that don't know, is dirty business all that matters?
Fucking shredding is all that matters.
