Top gun.

As of the fourth of November, I was officially graduated as a United States sailor. Not just any sailor, but a sailor who appreciates and lives for the art of the whole skateboard industry I love to skate, and when I found out that if I were to get hurt at all while skateboarding I would be court-martialed for damaging government property, I was downright, full-throttle, raging pissed. But after I had finished reading the adventures of the King of the Road ultimate road trip, it made me realize that there are prices to pay when you fall. You hurt your team as well as yourself, but there is not much else to do but say, "Fuck you, I do what I want," and take it like a champ. Face the consequences, keep doing what you love, and in the end, whether you win or lose there is always room to shotgun a beer and party while everything works itself out. Thank you very much, Thrasher, for keeping skateboarding raw and real, as well as being a hella gnar magazine. Engage the enemy, skate or die. Live the life of luxury with a skateboard in hand.

Hella gnar is right.--T-ed
