Mark Suciu began to gain exposure just over 8 years ago when Habitat’s Origins was released. His quick-footed prowess and precision was easy on the eyes, and when subsequent Suciu parts dropped it became clear that he was a master of a very specific, soothing style of skating—call it “rapid fire ambience.”

Then, around the time of adidas’ Away Days, he kinda dropped out of the limelight. This period, influenced by a mixture af higher learning obligations and an unfortunate bout of appendicitis, turned out to be critically necessary for Suciu; he became rejuvenated and refreshed, and now… he’s back. Route One UK have been big fans of this quick-feet master since they saw his first fakie crook fakie flip out, and they were well-equipped to ask Suciu the probing questions. 

Here, Suciu explains the effect that his time off has had on his skating:

*Skating is so much more fun now, and I nerd out over it really hard. I don’t feel like the relationship with skating is as fickle as before. *
