Tonguing stuff for a living
« on: December 16, 2016, 02:05:41 PM »
How do people like Brink and Erica Yary have successful careers as skate journalists? I get Tim O because he had a decent skate career and he's great on the mic for contests. Dyrdek makes sense too he founded SLS. The others though... I just assume they have a degree in journalism and start their own site like Jenkem trying to crowbar money out of the industry?

god damn it Tracer! Just when you seem not so bad, you start shit like this.

Are you that fucking bored? Can't you find a roller hockey pick up game or something?

Because you don't legally have to have had a professional career to love/be knowledgable on/be able to eloquently write about something
