he realized early on that being badly paid to wreck your body before you're 30 years old wasn't a good idea, found a job, got a house and a family and skates on the weekends, way better.

once you kickflip over an upright basketball hoop, you win skateboarding, they give you a trophy and then make you leave.
Hopefully not a kook, but if so, fuck it.

don't care if he was a berrics skater, he had a good style and some of the best flip tricks down big gaps. Think he came at the tail end of the era he would have succeeded in.

kind of crazy how some dudes will just coast and rip at flow level for decades, then there's guys like this that are on such a steep trajectory up, then just drop off completely.

I liked this part and that he used a good Blur song didn't hurt.

He bowed out super super early, I think if he had been 5 years older he would’ve been able to stick it out longer based on what was popular in skating/the way things headed industry and trend wise.

Would be dope if he still skates for fun.

Dude was undoubtedly good, but just kooked it on many levels.

He didn't fit in with a lot of people that rode for companies he did. At some point he went on a DVS trip and bluntly asked torey pudwill how much he got paid monthly from them. He wanted skateboarding to be a career and the sheltered way of his upbringing just didn't allow him to have the social aspects needed at that time in skateboarding.

Either way i heard he's killing it now and I'm stoked for him. Skateboarding should never be looked at as a career path.

Josiah “bury me in a y-shaped coffin” Gatlyn.
Or should that be Yo.

Hopefully he’s alive yes. Probably has better health insurance than Gabriel Summers.

it was deawon but still pretty fried. it took him a while to gain certain social ques for sure. he’s from the middle of nowhere north carolina and then got thrown into berra’s hell without much life experience outside of the bible belt at that time. he’s married and owns his own business now. pretty sure it’s graphic design or something. seen him skating random parks in florida recently and he’s still got it

you should always disclose your salary to co-workers, especially if the company policy prohibits it

What if my coworker sucks.. and I know they make less.. and I also know that if I tell them my wage they’ll go whine about it, souring my relationship with those who grant raises?
