Werner Herzog effortlessly seems to understand culture better than most people his age. When he's not hanging out with Grogu, the decorated documentarian keeps busy with myriad projects. And as it turns out, he may have just been a skateboarder in a previous life.

JENKEM magazine got Herzog on a video call to discuss skateboarding and watch some skate clips. He marvels at the resilience skaters show as they try to perfect a trick and also approves of Mark Gonzales skating in an art gallery. In the end, JENKEM approves Herzog as an honorary skater.
