The lord told me in a dream that in order to take over the world I had to skateboard. He's an asshole.

I was into fingerboarding and then when I saw that they made big fingerboards that I could stand on I just about crapped my Cross Colors.

Moved to another country and the first person in school who talked to me and became my friend was a skater. I went to the local spot with him a couple of times and got hooked almost instantly.

I can't be sure. I know I did it in elementary school but don't consider pre-ollie times. It wasn't until 7th or 8th grade when I learned to ollie that I would consider myself a skater. By then I was already 'skating' so I can't remember.

The thought of one day becoming pro and getting gold in the xgames. Winning every single dew tour. And having my own show on mtv.

All the ho's.
And the money.
And the cars.

And yet, even though I got none of that, I still skate.

Punk rock. Punk kind of went away but skateboarding never did. Now, it's just part of me, I guess...

Seeing an older dude in my hood pushing down the street.  He had all the cool gear (nts airwalk, blind jeans) and floppy tony hawk hair that fell into his face.  Tons of serious tude man.  Even taught me that style develops AFTER you learn the tricks.  I guess I was trying too hard.....
