I’ve been recently discovering the fact that downhill skateboarding has been healing me. I gave myself some severe bone bruising and back pain after my last big air competition, and after attempting to take it easy and rest, my symptoms seemed only to get worse. However now that I am back on my board, the pain disappears during the session and for longer periods of time afterwards. I’ve been getting better, stronger, every day since.
When I don’t skate, I hurt. When I do skate, I hurt less.
Food for thought.
Old and new. Still cheesin’ like a youngster.
Okay real talk for a second.
I’m planning on starting an LLC in a couple months to help manage and promote my lifestyle, creations, and ideas. It’s going to be simply a way for me to buy and sell merchandise, as well as promote myself professionally to reach a larger audience.
The downhill skateboarding world is a niche that I love so dearly, and I feel like it deserves more credit than it is receiving as of right now. I have a few years of architectural education under my belt, which I plan to incorporate into all of my projects and designs. My goal is to spread my passion of downhill skateboarding through inspiration and design.
However, I want to avoid any egotistical business strategies here. Although I plan on incorporating my nickname into the LLC, it will not be brandished all over everything. I want to provide products that any skater would appreciate, understand, and derive stoke from. Whether you’re a kid who watches videos and skates once a week, or if you’re one of my homies who I see at every event. We are all skaters at heart, and I want to study, discover, and encourage that passion throughout my designs.
Products, goodies, freebees, high fives, and good times to come.
As Johnny Tsunami once said, it’s time to go big or go home.
Any support, stoke, and positive vibes are greatly appreciated.
