Cody McEntire Interview

Cody McEntire Interview: Lone Catfish Becomes Overnight Sensation and Grinds to this Day

Cody McEntire, Cody “Mac”, or “Catfish” as he’s often called, is the quintessential skate rat. Although he is now one of the biggest pro skateboarders, he keeps it humble and mellow, taking nothing for granted and thinking about nothing else but skating from the moment he wakes up to the moment he…well, wakes up.  “When I’m hanging out with my girlfriend, it feels like I’m cheating on wife; skateboarding.”

Cody McEntire wins Tampa Am 2006 and is now pro for Blind skateboards, Silver trucks, and Vox shoes. His new shoe ‘The Ranger’ is available now. He did X Games Real Street but his first huge part was Digital Smoke and Mirrors. Goes to Make a Wish every year and just finished a crazy Sunday Funday at the Santa Monica Courthouse.
