Skateboarding is blood and sweat. Some people really don't know the meaning of skating at all. They think about being in the videos or making a career out of it. They land a couple hard tricks with no style, and then they expect to be a sponsored am. Five years later they realize their dreams were dreams, they quit skating, and they moved on to the next cool thing. Then one day, they'll see someone skating--and all of a sudden they again will have the urge to skate. They will approach the skater and try to act all cool, like, "I used to skate. Can I try your board out?" What are you trying to prove? If they were the real deal, they'd respect the skater and know not to ask them to try their board out. Who gives a shit that this guy used to skate? Almost everybody has skated at one point in their lives. Skaters used to bond, and now they look the other direction when they pass one another. One thing that did not change besides Thrasher mag is that, no matter what, you are going to have fun when you skate. Shout out to Duane Peters, the best skateboarder in history.
