"You know who else skated the bowl?  Friggin John Cardiel!  Today, three years after he was paralyzed and told he was never gonna
walk again, he took Dustin's board and dropped into the bowl and carved around.  His first drop in since it happened, congratulations!"-Patrick O'Dell of Epiclylaterd.

fuck, i love remembering about this dude. not like his injury and progressive return, i just mean not seeing or really thinking about his skating for a while, and then you randomly see a photo or video or whatever, its like instantly get pysched on skating.
