If you’re unfamiliar with Norman Plante we’re about to change that. Norm has been absolutely shredding the scene in the Northeast this season and doesn’t plan on holding anything back going forward from what we’ve seen. He continually goes H.A.M. (for those of you not in the know, that’s Hard As a Motherf…well you get the point) in Stretch House Media edits with fellow Team Mids rider Eric Roth and has been killing it in competitions all over. We decided to snag 6 quick questions with Norm to learn a bit about him and his beard as well as show off two new videos he did for sponsors Eastern Boarder skate shop and Cult Wheels. You can also see him in at least a couple of our edits on YouTube, as well.
Skate The East: Who are you, who do you ride for, how long have you been riding, where are you from — that standard stuff.
Norman Plante: My name is Norman Plante I live in Holliston Massachusetts, have been skating about 3 years now and ride for Cult wheels, Eden racing and Comet skateboards
STE: So you recently joined the Cult Wheels uh…team, or is it cult? Congrats either way! How and when did that happen?
NP: Thanks man! Matt K referred my name to them after seeing me skating at the I love DH slide jam.
They had apparently seen a few of my videos too and decided to offer me a spot on the team. Super mega stoked on it.
STE: What’s been the highlight of the season for you so far?
NP: I couldn’t choose just one, but going to the Ithaca slide jam in NY and showing Ed Garner and Dan Fontz from Maryland around Mass to shred have been two exceptionally rad things to happen so far this season for sure.
STE: What are you looking forward to most for the rest of the season?
NP: Right now I’m really stoked for this years Central Mass race and slide jam in Harvard. Going to be huge, so many crazy shredders from all over the place all at one event. I’m also possibly more stoked to be going to college at the university of Redlands in socal come late august. Don’t feel like I need to explain why I’m excited for that one.
STE: Tell us about the beard.
NP: Color: Brown/Grey
Weight: 91 kilos
But I recently shaved it because im a bitch
Should be back to it’s former glory in about a week or two.
STE: What would you do for a Klondike Bar?
