Introduction by Arthur Novikov 
Edit by Orest Kovalchuk with Arthur Novikov

Name: Orest Kovalchuk

Age: 19

Hometown: Odessa, Ukraine

Occupation: Student

Best lines-spot you know: At Dumskaya square in Odessa are a lot of cool ledges variation. Gaps, stairs etc. So it’s a pretty good choice for everyday skating

Worst encounter while drawing some lines: Never happend to me personally but there were some occasions where kids ran into a buddies way

Best moment in rolling… ever: I like contests. I think every contest is the best moment in rolling because you skate with different-skilled bladers and you feel warmed-up and juiced and perform crazier tricks than usual

If you had a time machine, when and where would you travel? I would go to England in the Middle Ages because, in my opinion, that must have been pretty trashy. I’d kill a horrible dragon and marry the beautiful princess!

Favorite kitchen utensil and why: A fork, because it makes 4 holes. Comes in handy…

What would you do for $10,000? I would buy new camera, a tripod, a few lenses

Weirdest thing you’ve ever seen: Every weekend I see the weirdest things at the parties around here

Worst date you’ve ever been on: I don’t remember

Top 3 places you want to visit next: In Ukraine I want to go to Yalta, Berlin in Germany and Barcelona, Spain

What do you don’t like about yourself? Alcoholism

Your plans for the future: I want to become a video director
