FRMTB: When you find a new line or set yourself a new trick goal, how do you go about it?
Fuzail : I love pushing myself harder until I’m completely tired for the day! Off late, I haven’t done any major trick or line but great things are on the way.
FRMTB: What kind of issues do you face while sessioning at certain city spots?
Fuzail : Practicing an unrecognized sport in India gets no support from anyone. Cops and land owners always spoil a good session but I never giving up!
