Tim's Top 5 Comments That Have Gotten Him Into Predicaments:
1. Telling a bunch of hoods "f–k you" when I was far away from my friends. I got nice and beat up.
2. Almost everything I say.
3. Yelling at people out of a car window and then hitting a red light. I just lock the doors and laugh hysterically, 'cause angry people are funny people.
4. Telling a girl I love her and want to buy her a diet cola. Then finding out I'm standing right next to her boyfriend.
5. Answering my cell phone drunk and saying, "This is Tim O'Connor, I'm wasted and at a strip club." It ended up being my girlfriend who was calling me.
Tim started skating at the age of 10.
Tim's sponsors include Habitat skateboards, Adidas shoes, Venture trucks, Liberty Boardshop, and Quiksilver clothing.
Tim: (his advice to everyone) Drink your own urine at least once. And poo in public while making eye contact with a stranger.
Tim: (about a fight he was in) I got jumped by a bunch of hoods in S.F. And got wacked over the head with my own pro model skateboard. But I did throw one guy on a car in the middle of the road with people in. Then some girl that was with them was talking 'ish so I told her " shut the fuck up you wench!". Then a fat kid punched me in the eye and I left. It was a good time. I got out of the mix basically unscathed even though there was about 8 of them. I got my board back and got to call a girl a wench to her face. I'm glad it happened.
Tim: (when asked his favorite travel story) Probably the time when I let a deer lick my right testicle and then a couple of minutes later that same deer beat the shit out of Ryan Gee.
Tim: (when asked his skateing influences) Mike Carroll, the original plan b line up. Guy Mariano, Natas, Brian Lotti. Most of my friends growing up and my friends now that are good and I guess....influential.
Tim: (about his favorite time in skating) Before skateboarders were ever rich and everybody was a dirt. Before skaters cared what car they drove. Pretty much in the real early 90's.
Tim: (when asked if he gets extra attention from women after he skated on MTV in a thong) Jumpin' Jehosafats yeah! Ever since that thing aired on the T.V., when I drive down the street I have to put on my windshield wipers to swat off the women throwing their delicious bodies at my car.
Tim: (about how he stays fit) Is it a combination of rigorous stretching and training, or do you just eat lots of fiber to stay loose. I have sex with naked ladies to keep the muscles away from atrophy.
Tim (about when asked his New Year's resolution) Yeah it was to make fun of everyone else's New Year's resolutions.
Tim: (about an injury) My other brother threw a full soda can at my face, and the rim of it hit me in the upper lip. Got some more stitches for that one. I also tried to ride my brother's Gator board and clocked myself in the bottom lip with it. The cut went all the way into my mouth and I got stitches again.
Tim: (about an injury) I fell at a Canadian skatepark ramp and slit open my arm on the edge of the metal at the bottom. Got a couple moose hair stitches to seal up that gash on my limb.
Tim: (about an injury) While attempting a back Smith on a miniramp, I fractured my lower right prepubescent arm to where the bone popped out of my skin. My arm looked like a f**kin' whammy bar. Right after I did it, my friend's dog jumped on me and was trying to lick the bone marrow sauce out of my bone. That's not a lie.
Tim: (talking about his injury) I have sprained my left ankle so many times I've lost count. I think I sprained it Pi times. Anybody who knows me knows that I can sprain my ankle just by staring at the mo' fo'. That joint is chronically merked.
