Joey Brezinski in Los Angeles Red Bull Photofiles

Well-known as a burrito lover and technical manual skater, Joey Brezinski is a household name in skateboarding. Skilled and creative across the board (no pun intended), Joey has pushed the manual to ridiculous limits, helped create the international Red Bull Manny Mania contest series back in 2007, and continues to break new ground in his own unique way.

Brezinski lives the California dream, hanging out in Venice or at The Berrics, working on his clothing brand So Rad, and searching for the perfect burrito. He also has a goofy sense of humour that keeps people smiling everywhere he goes, as you'll see below in some of his picks for his favourite things...

Favourite movie:
My favourite movie is Idiocracy. The first time I watched it I thought it was funny and sad at the same time. The way they depended on technology to run their lives - it could definitely happen.

Favourite book:
The Macbook Pro by Apple. It’s so intriguing; I really love the part about the iTunes, that’s my favourite.

Burritos. Breakfast burritos, bean and cheese burritos, spaghetti and meatballs burritos…

Favourite TV show:
My favourite TV show is Wipeout. It takes zero brain cells to watch, and it’s pure entertainment.

Favourite magazine:
Transworld Skateboarding and Thrasher have really good articles, do it yourself tips, really helpful information.

Favourite song:
"O.P.P." by Naughty by Nature. I jam to that daily.

Favourite animal:
My pug, Pizza. She is so rad, and she’s also the face of my brand, So Rad.

Favourite colour:
Magenta or neon black.

Favourite holiday:
Labor Day because it falls on my birthday. Also, I feel for all the moms who had to go through labour.

Favourite gadget:
My new iPod Touch. It does everything: music, video and it updates my daily Twit/Clip on Twitter…

Favourite thing to eat:
Burritos. Breakfast burritos, bean and cheese burritos, spaghetti and meatballs burritos…

Favourite thing to wear:
My signature So Rad hooded sweatshirt with machine-washable, built-in headphones.

Favourite place to be:
The brand new home I just purchased, or the hot tub in its backyard.

Favourite way to indulge or treat/reward yourself:
Cheesecake, without a doubt. It’s so rad; I’m going to get some now.

Favourite times to get up/go to bed:
I like to get up around 9am and walk my dogs. Midnight is always a good time to go to sleep.

Favourite thing to spend money on:
My new house. I’m always hitting Best Buy or Home Depot. Refrigerator, stove, carpet and a new picket fence. Just making it my own place is a fun new hobby. 


Favourite thing to do in your free time:
Nothing. Sitting on my couch and doing nada. That’s what I like to do, just relax.

Favourite thing about your sport:
The love I have for skateboarding. Every day, I can’t wait to get to the park or wherever it is I’m going to skate that day. I also love every time I learn a new trick; after all these years, it’s still the best feeling.

Favourite sport other than your own:
Bowling. I just love fondling the ball in my hand before I fling it right down the middle.

Favourite celebrity or sports star:
Jared from Subway. He set a goal to take a foot-long down every day… So inspiring.

Favourite people to skate with:
Kenny Anderson and Ronnie Creager. They’re just good friends that I always looked up to as a kid. Now I get to skate with them all the time. It’s like my idols are my good friends now, so crazy.

Favourite thing in your house or apartment:
The hot tub. After a long day of skating, coming home to that is the best.

Favourite thing about your life:
Being able to do what I love every day: skateboarding.
