Demon Seed welcomes Steven Piñeiro

Steven and Juan Piñeiro were discovered By Dave Duncan in The 2009 Florida Bowl Riders Cup. After that, he invited them to continue the WCS tour... Both of them like to say that Dave Duncan is “like our God Father in SkateBoarding he introduced us to the big leagues!!” And in the big leagues theyare. Steven was sponsored by Embassy last year but just changed a couple of months ago (in August 2011) to Demon Seed. Juan was on the Amateur Combi Pool Classic roster but could’nt make it. A couple of days before the Bowl-A-Rama contests in Wellington and Bondi, it was time to ask Steven again about the main thing in his life ”his wrist” LOL!

Steven Pineiro What happened to your wrist? Steven Pineiro: NO COMPRENDO!! LOL!! I believe you are referring to my brother Juan who broke his wrist last month. When did he break it? Steven Pineiro: My brother Juan broke it about six weeks ago, was doing a back blunt to disaster on a 10' wall and paid the price.

isTia.Tv: Did he have surgery? Steven Pineiro: No he did Not need surgery, however & ironically, it has helped Juan on improving & learning new tricks that requires the use of his left hand.

isTia.Tv:Did he have a cast? Steven Pineiro: He had one, and for the record Juan is a beast he is skating harder than ever with his cast on Juan is amazing I learn so much from him I'm his biggest fan!! Back to you, you broke your wrist in Bondi last year. How are you now? Steven Pineiro: Well back to me, my wrist that I broke in Bondi,Australia last year is okay now; however, it still bothers me at times when I'm doing tricks that requires some tork on it Do you plan to break another bone before the Protec Combi? Steven Pineiro: Hopefully I won't break anything ever again. But skating on concrete you never know....on and at the level of tricks that I'm trying or doing, even with pads it's very dangerous.

isTia.Tv: Talking about Bondi, are you going to Wellington and / or Bondi this year? Steven Pineiro: Bondi, my budget limits me only for one or two events in Australia. We are schedule to leave mid-Febuary and will stay probably a little over a week

isTia: How are you doing with schoolwork? Steven Pineiro: I'm avoiding homeschooling. I believe in having a normal life as possible, so I'm negotiating work with my teachers and doing make-up work when I come back.

isTia.Tv What's the story behind the awesome Penny clip (see above)? Are you sponsored by Penny? Steven Pineiro: Not exactly, I was skating at Atlantic Beach Rotary Skate Park one day and there was a boy who was riding a penny, I got some crazy ideas and asked if i could use it for a bit and it ended up being awesome, so my friend Connor Cornell filmed and put together the Penny Video and it came out soooo sick. What happened to the Ams contest at the Combi? You were not there to support... Steven Pineiro: I was going with my brother Juan but he was forced to cancel do to so many injuries this past year. He just came back from a knee injury that kept him out for 3 months to go on and break
