Mike Mastroni – Then & Now

There’s a rad little read on the Volume site with Mike Mastroni comparing himself to what he was like 5 years ago. While some things have changed, a lot remains the same. Hit the photo for the full interview.

“What can honestly be said about Mike Mastroni that hasn’t been said in the last year or so, he’s done a ton of press on our ‘The Finer Things’ video than most riders do in a lifetime. It’s always a slippery slope when a filmer is also a badass rider but prefers to film his friends/ team instead of focusing all the attention on himself. We finally got Mike to sit down and write down a quick THEN (past 5yrs) and NOW for your reading pleasure.”

Motivation in BMX
Then: Make things happen.
Now: Make better things happen.

What gets you pumped to film
Then: New Spots, the right trick, the right song, making it look good, and using our urban environment in ways that are invisible to most people.
Now: The exact same really. I definitely analyze filming a lot more thoroughly now though and strive to get better at what I do. These days it’s all much more of an artistic pursuit for me vs just filming something to “get the trick.”
