Foundation Welcome..... Dan Murphy


Let's get to the point, People want to know why you made the switch to Foundation?
The economy has been effecting businesses everywhere, and this was working against my dreams. I was ready for change, I received an opportunity, and I decided to take a new direction with a company I believe in..

Wasn't your first board a Foundation?

Yeah, it was a Josh Beagle.. My mom bought it for me at Slacker's in Portsmouth, NH.. who'd a thought i'd start over where I started.

You moved back to the East Coast last month, what’s up with the sudden change of coasts?
I had to get back to my roots, my school, my family, my friends, my skate spots,  and the support that launched my career in the first place..

You live in Raleigh, NC and it’s sort of a underground hot spot right now. What are some things people don’t know about Raleigh
We got spots for days… and they're not all blown out.  I got over 200 photos of spots in my iPod within a 20 mile radius.  Not to mention, they got hospitality here, so your less often dealing with an enemy approach.  Theirs a certain amount of respect here, even kick outs are more friendly.
 
You can walk to Campus from your house and I hear the school has you on their wall something about you becoming a pro skateboarder?
Yeah, most big colleges keep a tab on their alumni... they like to see their students succeed in different areas, especially athletically.  I appreciate NC State for recognizing skateboarding athletically and its campus for offering a good variety of skate spots for me to learn on.

How often do you use your college degree?
I don't really pay that much attention, but i'm sure I use a bit of the acquired knowledge unconsciously daily

How's your dog Indy doing?
Indy's flyin high.. he's goin' gray, but never tired.  He ran with me during a line I filmed yesterday like it was 1999. Chill out indy!
 
What’s your plans for 2010.
I did wrote some new year's resolution's

Do you care to share them with the rest of the world?

1) run 3 miles 3 day's a week
2) quit smoking ciggs 
3) skate all that.  (contests, streets, etc)
4) wake up (early)
5) finish cacka spot book
6) write a will
7) rich
8) ride foundation...

and i ain't even done yet...

Not bad..
 
When is your next video part dropping?
My next part is in a video were putting out called "YouGottaGetThat" outta Raleigh, NC feat. a hefty east coast crew.. specifically Gilbert Crockett, Connor Champion, Brett Abramsky, Bob Reynolds, Scotty Moore, Mike Peterson, Kyle Berard, BobbyWorrest, Tyler Tufty, and Ricky Covach.. all I gots to say is one word,  YouGottaGetThat!

Sounds tight, Welcome to the team Murph!

Good on ya man, rep what you love. Def a surprise power move but no matter who Murphy rides for he's always going to be one of the cleanest and smoothest power houses in skateboarding!

what's name of trick in gif?
Posted By: don on January 11th, 2010 at 11:45AM PST
It's good to see skaters going back and supporting their roots. Props to Dan. Angel Ramirez is also good about this aspect as well. Makes skateboarding seem less out of reach and more family. Respect for sure.

shits sicky nick s the man
Posted By: gabe nava on January 12th, 2010 at 10:43PM PST
normally i'd be cool but his very first answer was because of money. this move wasn't about convience or family it was because he wants to be rich. that's a bit disappointing. but if he's happy here he deserves it.

Hell yeah just don't let Tod make you kill yourself over some stupid shit! Keep skating how you do! If Tod knows whats best he wont make you dress all in tight black clothes and make you jump down 15+ stairs a day! Even if Dan did switch companies for money I don't know why some of you are tripping...We all gotta eat and mystery puts forth no effort right now!
Posted By: Dan'o on March 18th, 2010 at 05:05AM PST
he should've stayed on mystery. but tom asta is a good replacement.
