Name:

Mario Ungerer

What´s your age?

06.10.92

Where were you born and what has influenced you most there?

I was born in Schwabmünchen, near Augsburg. Most of all I was influenced by the family connection and my really exciting youth.

Where do you currently live and what led you there?

After a pretty awesome time in Munich I was drawn back to Schwabmünchen.Girlfriend, Family and additionally relatively good rentals convinced me ;) 

What is your biggest passion and what pushes you there?

There is nothing more chilled out for me than to go skating with some friends. The exaggerated ambition to land a trick even if you have already completely destroyed yourself drives me. I quote one of the hottest Munich skaters Andi Kögler " Skateboarding is war". Of course you lose every now and then, but when you win it is a feeling that makes you forget all the pain ;)

What do you enjoy doing with your free time when you are not pursuing your biggest passion?

I draw and tattoo on the side and of course I spend a lot of time with my girlfriend.

Since when do you skate and what inspired you to do so?

I started skating when I was 12 or 13. I got Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 for Christmas. A part of the game was that you got these little clips as a reward for unlocking a new character. Like real skate clips. For example from Eric Koston and Co. They really flashed me back then and I bought a board. From then on it was all about one thing...

What is your favourite trick / favourite motive and why?

I don't have the one favourite trick, but every kind of kickflips and Nollie K's are definitely always satisfying.

What is your favorite spot and what makes it special?

Good floors, round rails, some marble curbs, the right homies and I am happy.

Are you goofy or regular?

Goofy

Which other sponsors do you have?

Marijuth Clan, Favorite Skateboards, Shrn (most dangerous skateshop in the world!!!), Nike Sb, Ecko Unlimited
