Good things come to those who skate
Home    Info
About: With this blog I wish to pass on the enjoyment, random experiences, cultures and the love of sport, while living a life of travel as a professional skateboarder.
As stories pile up, I wish to share them as a resource to others as a smile or inspiration.

#DMG private gallery from #maryhillFOS finals 2014. See how the faces change from relaxed to narrow eyes and low chins mentally preparing on the start line ready to race.

Day 1 @angiescurves riding clean lines at 102.7km/h = 63.8mph and not psyching myself out like last year. One more day of practice makes a world of difference to ramp up confidence. Thanks @sector9 & @louispilloni and props to @micah.green for the spot on the poster!
