这是你第一次来中国么?感觉怎么样?

Yanick Nolet:It’s my first time coming to Asia actually,it is an amazing trip,especially in Shanghai.We went to Beijing first,it was a little bit too busy and noisy but a great history lesson. i really like Shanghai it’s more international i suppose.

其实这是我第一次来到亚洲,这是一次非常美妙的旅行,特别是在上海。我们先是到了北京,一开始给我的感觉有点忙碌还有点吵,也许是刚到不适应的原因吧,不过那儿的历史文化确实让我印象深刻。而上海则是更具有国际气息的城市,这里给人感觉很自由。

Skatehere:How is the skate scene in Montreal? You used to have a shop too right?

蒙特利尔的滑板发展如何?你以前自己也开过店吧?

Yanick Nolet:It’s doing well,not too big,but ok.Me and my good friend opened a shop in a small city called Trois-Rivières for 2years and now it’s out.because it was a small city, not really many people skating and there were two other big shops in the city too.So we stopped it and went back to Montreal.

蒙特利尔的滑板发展还蛮不错,不过也没有那么多的人每天滑板。那个滑板店是我和我的好朋友一起开的,大概干了有两年的时间,然后就不得不停下来了。因为那个店是在Trois-Rivières这个比较小的城市开的,那里并没有特别多人滑板,而且还有两个比较大的店铺在那里。所以我们就决定停了店回到蒙特利尔。

Skatehere:You opened a skate themed beer company now,how is that going?and how do you come up with the idea?

你开了个滑板主题的啤酒公司,现在这个公司运行的如何?你是怎么有这么个想法的?

Yanick Nolet:It looks like a skateshop,but it doesnt sell hard goods.It’s a small shop,but  it has a good vibe. i designed the whole shop and i wanted to bring people this kinda of beer and skate feeling together,because i think drinking  beer is every skaters second favourite hobby .

这个店看起来像是滑板店,但却不卖滑板产品。现在还不是很大,但却是有很好的氛围。我设计了整个的店铺,我想讲滑板和啤酒结合到一起。因为我感觉啤酒可能是所有滑板人的第二爱好吧。

—————————————

Skatehere:What’s your favorite beer?

那你最喜欢喝什么啤酒?

Yanick Nolet:IPA(India Pale Ale),because it’s more hoppy and bitter

我喜欢India Pale Ale,更有啤酒花味,而且也有点小苦

我和Girl,Underworld还有很多滑板店一起合作过,Father skateboards现在运营的还不错,但我已经离开了公司,因为我开始了这个啤酒的生意么不是。我也与蒙特利尔的滑板杂志Expose 滑板杂志合作过很多东西。
