Description. The emphasis in freestyle is technical flat ground skateboarding. Often a freestyler will need little more than a board and a smooth, flat surface. Music and choreography have always been an essential part of the professional freestyle routine. 

 

A bit about the owner of Mode Skateboards, Terry Synnott.

Terry runs MODE Skateboards with his wife, Jenna. She handles most of the graphic design while he does all the screen printing of the decks. Terry performed as a skateboarder for four seasons in a Cirque du Soleil show at the theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The show premiered in late 2007 and ended its run in early 2011. 

 

It was a good experience. I skated for four seasons in a seasonal show called “Wintuk” at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Casey Rigney and I were the first skateboarders they ever used. The first year, we were there for what they call the creation of the show. We spent a few months in Montreal, participating in the development of the show and then training for the show. 

 

I came into Cirque from working a desk job. I was a copy editor at a newspaper. So joining Cirque was interesting to see how all these different people made their livings. There were a lot of gymnasts and power track people, dancers, rope skippers, contortionists, etc.

Skate for your own enjoyment and it will never let you down. Skateboarding has provided me with endless hours of challenges and fun for 27 years, and I can’t imagine ever stopping.

Maybe also to cast a wide net in terms of watching other skaters to find things that inspire you. As you begin, take the elements that you like and find ways to make them your own.
