This is a photo of me with my first skateboard, a VISION Mark "GATOR" Rogowski signature model, circa 1984. I had to purchase it myself at 14, with a job I got with a work permit as a golfball retreiver. I got hit by rich assholes for a month before I had the money for that skate. I quit the next day. I was mock quoted by all my friends who didn't skate " Where's my skateboard? Where's my skateboard? " because I never left home without it.
