When the Bones Wheels team rolled through Florida a few months back, they did a demo at P(a)yne Skatepark in Sarasota and tore the place up.

Most of the Bones Wheels “Pool” Team, consisting of Jimmy “The Greek” Marcus, Kevin Kowlaski, Brad McLain, Steven Reeves, and Ben Hatchell rolled through Florida last month on a backyard pool skating/ filming mission. The whole trip was organized by Miami local Seth Levy. Seth apparently is relocating out of the Miami area and had a list of a bunch of backyard pools that he wanted to skate before leaving. Earlier this year at the Florida Bowlriders Cup, Seth was talking with Rob Washburn, the brand manager at Bones Wheels about his “list” and Rob thought it would be cool if the Bones Wheels “Pool Division” made a trip out of it. Just a short couple of months later, that trip became a reality. Check out this video with an interview with Seth Levy, backyard pool skating footage, Circus Bowl footage, and even some cool time-lapse footage of a complete emptying/cleaning of a Florida backyard pool! Look for more footage in the upcoming Bones video!

I just recently met Tillman and I caught up with him yesterday @ the Ghetto Skate Facility to shoot photos and do this interview. Tillman just turned 15 recently, but rips with the speed, style, and finesse of a professional that has been doing it for years! Not to mention, he is also a really cool kid. He is wise beyond his years and has already sworn off people that have bad attitudes and trash-talk. He knows that there is no time for that crap, Tillman just wants to skate and have fun…attitude-free. Keep an eye out for Tillman, because his skating will blow your mind!

Who are your current sponsors?
I’m on Ghetto Skateboards, Ion clothing, and I’m (flow) for Bones wheels!
What is your current board set-up?
I ride a 7.75 Ghetto deck with Mob Grip, 139 Independent trucks of course, they’re the best, and 56 mm Jimmy The Greek Bones wheels with Bones Reds bearings!!
So, you are a really talented transition skater, do you skate street as well?
Well, I never really skated anything until I moved here and was sitting in Sonny’s BBQ eating ribs and saw an ad for The Ghetto Skate Facility and begged my mom to take me. Once I was there I loved it and I was there every time I got the chance. So, yes, I’m very talented at transition, but lately I have been skating more and more street but my true passion still is with transition!
Do you ever skate the vert ramp @ SPoT?
I do go to SPoT almost every Tuesday and play on the vert a little, but not much. I will be starting to skate it more though as soon as I make it out to one of the vert jams that have been going down there.
Have you skated in a lot of contests? Do like contests?
No, I don’t tend to skate too many contest. So far a total of like 6 and I do well in them, but i definitely don’t like them. I feel that there are always too many people who come to them their bad attitudes, which really bums me out and makes me want to not even skate.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Well that depends on if I’m skating or not. If I am skating I like to listen to fast heavy music like Slayer or Iron Maiden. If I’m not skating I’ll tend to listen to Lil Wayne.

Who are your skateboarding influences?
Oooohh man one person and one person only Chris Lehman. He kills it when he is skating any ramp of any size he is great!! I tend to get told i skate like him which really makes me feel good about my skating!
Do you have any plans for the future?
Well not really, I do plan on going to college no matter what happens, but I do want to take my skating as far as possible.
