I got started late in life. Almost 14 when I got my first board. It was a cheap swap meet deck, but from the start I was hooked.
My family was not well off so most of my boards i bought used from other guys in the neighborhood. My first pro board was a beat up old bones Tommy Guerrero. It was so beat that there was no nose to it.
Through the years these boards were the the ones that made me a batter skatet
