Simon: What is your favorite trick?
Jereme Rogers: I don't know. I like the basics to the hard stuff, nothing really gets old in skateboarding. A kickflip is going to stay exciting, no matter how long you do it. Tricks don't get old.

Simon: What is your favorite moment of your career?
Jereme Rogers: Getting a shoe in my name or Rookie of the Year when I first turned pro, that was very cool, I was definitely psyched on that.

Simon: When people see the tattoos and jewelry, are they surprised to hear you are a religious guy?
Jereme Rogers: Yeah, I mean people have their preconceived ideas or notions.

Simon: How and when did you develop your strong faith?
Jereme Rogers: From 19 until now. Before that, I had never been to church or was introduced to it, I didn't grow up around it. So from 19 to now, I'm 23. There was no specific one night.

Simon: Is it true you are interested in going into the ministry when your career is over?
Jereme Rogers: It's definitely a possible idea, but I can't really say what will be in store afterwards.

Simon: When your not on your skateboard what do you like to do on your free time?
Jereme Rogers: Hang out with my girl, watch movies and do basic stuff.

Simon: What is your training routine like in the offseason?
Jereme Rogers: I don't do any training. I just go skating, go have fun. I just try to make sure I skate at least five times a week. I don't have a specific training regiment, I just go out and skate.

Simon: Last year you placed 15th in the Dew Tour you placed 15th. Are you on a mission to get in the top 10 this year?
Jereme Rogers: Yeah, last year I just didn't do well, you know it happens. I don't know what to say, I can't really call it out, but I'm definitely shooting for the top spot.

Simon: As for the rest of your career goes, what do you want to accomplish?
Jereme Rogers: I just want to branch out and do different things, do business things too. Do books and different stuff. It depends what doors open and what you choose to do and what you act on.

Simon: Any advice to kids who want to follow in your footsteps as a pro skateboarder?
Jereme Rogers: Just believe in yourself. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter who does. And if you do, it doesn't really matter who doesn't. Believe in yourself, get through the rough days, don't quit and don't give up.
