Ayemric Tonin swings a big baguette and beats on poor little mountains with it. We randomly crossed paths with him last season in the hills of bumblefuck nowhere in Greece and slashed up the steep and deep tzatziki side by side. This summer we sat down with this French heavy hitter to see what he has been up to, how well the ankle he mangled is glueing itself back together, and we also asked what's up with the Homies crew and what's on the horizon for him personally.
Salut, Aymeric, what time is it right now where you are?
11 AM en mi casa!
How is the ankle feeling? Tell us how it happened and what you had to do to fix it.
Yes, my ankle is feeling better but it takes time. I did a lot of physio sessions and worked out especially hard at the gym. I broke my ankle hitting a big gap. It was a pretty sketchy session, with very little snow and really high temps. Basically, I landed on rocks...How was the Sonar festival in Barcelona this summer?
Amazing, I had never gone to a festival that big before and I was surprised to hear the electro sounds. It's not really my style but the Barcelona atmosphere made me change my mind, I had a lot of fun.
Tell us about your experience feta shredding experience in Greece?
I went there with the Nitro team, I never thought I would someday snowboard in Greece. There was a lot of snow, the scenery is beautiful and the Greeks are super friendly.What is the last thing you ate?
It was just before getting on a plane at 4:00 in the morning so I was drunk, and I ate a delicious fresh Greek yogurt. That stuff is my guilty pleasure.
What was the most ridiculous shit the Protest Joker game made you do last season?
That is easy to answer. The dumbest thing I've ever done in my life is jumping into Lake Geneva in -20℃. I was pretty scared when I lost the game and pretty happy I survived!
When was the last time you actually ran?
I ran 30 minutes ago... (Ed. note: See what we did there?)When is an appropriate time to use the French expression, "et bim"?
When I see a photo of me published in Method Mag!
What kind of hip hop still gets your head bobbing hard these days?
Here's 2 tracks, Ice Cube - "It Was A Good Day" & The Pharcyde - "Runnin'".
