Kate Voynova

  • HOMETOWN:
  • Moscow, Russia

  • DATE OF BIRTH:
  • 26 November, 1997

  • SKATEBOARDING SINCE:
  • 2013

  • STANCE:
  • Goofy

  • FAVORITE TYPE OF SKATEBOARDING:
  • Dancing and freestyle, mixing all styles into one

  • BEST PART OF SKATING:
  • Communication and meeting wonderful people, exploring new places, refreshing your mind. Also, the pleasure when you land a desired trick. Skateboarding can absolutely change your life. Like it happened with me. Everyone should try it.

  • LAMEST PART OF SKATING:
  • Sometimes it hurts.

  • WORST HABIT:
  • I grind my teeth. Only at night and I don't know about it, but my relatives know.

  • BIGGEST PET PEEVE:
  • Noisy, obnoxious people who try to look smart and show their off. Lies and carelessness.

  • WORST ACCIDENT:
  • One day I fell down when I did BS Pivot. Yeah, sounds very stupid. But I hurt my knee so bad that I couldn't walk normal for a long time. And still I sometimes feel pain in my knee when I skate or do some physical exercises, but it won’t stop me.

  • BEST EVENT:
  • China Longboard Carnival with the Paris Truck Co. Team, 2016

  • ONE THING EVERY SKATER SHOULD KNOW:
  • Always skate for fun! I think it's really important to skate for yourself, for your body, your mind, but not for anybody or anything.

  • DREAM SKATE DESTINATION:
  • Korea, America, Spain, France, Japan and a lot of other countries. It's my dream to travel and skate everywhere!

  • THREE FAVORITE SKATERS:
  • I can't pick only three people. I gain my inspiration from a lot of different guys and girls and usually it happens when I meet them in real life. I get a lot of motivation when I see how highly skilled skaters skate near me! And it doesn't matter who is it: somebody from the Paris Team or maybe a famous skater.
    P.S. Timur is without a rival 😉

  • FAVORITE TRICK:
  • Armpossible

  • FAVORITE BAND:
  • Bring Me The Horizon

  • BEST CONCERT YOU HAVE ATTENDED:
  • It was my first concert. My boyfriend gave me two tickets to BMTH for my 18th birthday, it was unforgettable! Just by accident we stood in the front row and jumped and shouted the whole concert!

  • FAVORITE MOVIE:
  • It’s really hard to choose. Something without blood, viscera, meat and anxiety

  • FAVORITE SKATE VIDEO:
  • No definite. Paris in Beijing.:)

  • FAVORITE FOOD:
  • Chinese food. If you ask me about sweets - tiramisu forever! 🙂

  • FAVORITE ACTIVITY OUTSIDE OF SKATING:
  • Drawing and computer graphics

  • FAVORITE BEER/ DRINK OF CHOICE:
  • Funny, but I have never had any alcohol drinks. I'm real fan of different berry lemonades though.

  • WHO ELSE HELPS YOU OUT?
  • Pepper Boards from Russia
    Sony Action Cam
    Long City Life - The Moscow longboard community
    And of course my parents and Timur
