It's just something you did, period.


I’m a coastal Southern California Native ... I don’t know what got me into skating, it’s just something you did, period.

I do know being poor in a upper middle class neighborhood sucks. My first board was a Banzai ... think a Gator knockoff? K-Mart too maybe even? Ugh! My first real new deck was a Fishstix. I loved it... until my first Jeff Kendall.

My wife is 40, from Indonesia. She got got her first board last year... a Carlos Ribeiro Pendleton Zoo. Lol.

Thanks for sharing your story with us. I bet you’ll get some killer ones!

Have a lovely Holiday. Merry Christmas! May we all survive in the New Year...
