One Star World Tourers – Jerome Campbell
While Converse Cons’s impressive One Star World Tour is currently taking a break before checking off Asia and Latin America, the next continents on the list, we jumped upon the opportunity to undergo some travel Q&A with some of the enrolled skate jet-setters.
Hey Jerome, would you tell us where and when you were born?
I was born in Sheffield on the 5th of August 1987.
And your full name is:
Full really haha, Jerome Campbell Martino Ashely.
How much of the world have you toured on the One Star World Tour?
I actually only went on the UK leg, London and Manchester.
Your newest latest accomplishment:
Delegation, to a certain extent.
As in trick or in life haha, 360 flips, salmon teriyaki.
… 360 flips, salmon teriyaki
Your style of skating:
I love going fast, I’m not fussed about technical shit anymore I just want to see powerful tricks done properly.
House or apartment:
Now apartment, later house.
Car or bike?
Car, bikes are cool but gnarly, plus no chick really digs the rain.
Suitcase or duffel bag?
Suitcase, as I got older this shit became surprisingly important to me.
Most expensive piece of clothing?
I have a pretty expensive wallet that work bought me for my birthday, I think they truly disapproved of my £3 museum gift shop piece.
Luxury item on the the tour?
Strangely I think it has to be the bus, it was slow as fuck but totally comfortable, plus good company.
Favourite food on tour?
Pizza East in London is always great.
When not skating on tour I…
…work like crazy to make things look as good as they possibly can.
Who’s the star on the One Star world tour?
Aaron is always great on these things, charging everyday day no matter the terrain.
One star your skating was most influenced by:
Jake (Johnson), he has the physical power to turn any head when he skates.
Aaron (Herrington) with a doubt, just for his sheer skill level alone, there is no one better.
Sheffield or London?
Impossible question, they both have their perks and flaws. Sheffield.
What’s been playing on your ipod/phone on tour?
I’m really into Spotify radio, so its often pretty random. Fetty Wap – Mac Demarco.
Flight of the Navigator.
Last skate clip you watched?
CORE with my boy The Beast in.
Photo or video?
Footy: on the pitch or on memory card?
Certainly on the pitch, I love nothing more than that 10:30 wet kick off.

Will we ever get to see One Stars with studs?
I should put a request in really.
Quickest feet in the game?
Marcelo, or if we’re talking skating Dom Henry.
Mongolia or Malmö?
Pontus aint going to like this but Mongolia, it’s just a little more exotic.
Gucci-P or Klez?
Gucci- P standard.
Polar or Blueprint?
Polar, Blueprint was fun great but Polar is something really special.
Please charge or pretty chill?
There’s always time for both.
