One of the most stylish skateboarder slash surfers out there today is Hawaiian Evan Mock. He hangs with all the cool skaters, travels the world with all the cool guy surfers, takes pictures of the most stylish girls, rides for all the coolest brands, and has the skills to back it all up. Recently the artist Tom Sachs took a video of Evan skating the North Shore for his friend Frank, who had a similar pink do at the time. Frank – the one and only Frank Ocean – then posted the clip to his followers and all hell broke loose. Tyler the Creator even swooped into Evan’s DMs. Wild stuff that Evan details in the interview.

Sample:

Right, so first off: your hair. It’s pink. You just did that so you could get the Frank Ocean Instagram shoutout, yeah?

Yeah, that’s such a crazy deal. So that all came about when I was with my friend, Tom Sachs. He was in Hawaii with my boss at Hurley, Pat Towersey, staying at the house across from the skatepark. He went to watch Pipe, and I went to the park and we met there later. Tom said, ‘Hey dude! That’s so rad, my friend Frank has the same hair right now. He’d love it if you said, “What up!” to him.’ He puts his phone in my face and I was like, ‘Uhhh, well…’ and whatever else it was I said in the video. Not knowing that it was Frank fucking Ocean he was talking about.

I wake the next morning to 15,000 new followers and Frank Ocean follows me and all these Frank Ocean fan accounts are blowing me the fuck up and it was a weird ordeal. And it’s still happening! It’s been days since that happened and I’m still getting traction. People are just going nuts. Tyler, The Creator sent me a DM. He slid into my DMs! It’s ridiculous. Such a random deal, and funny that that’s all that it takes. You can see how much influence those guys have once you share their spotlight a bit.
