Skateboarding is about opportunites. It is about creativity. It is about being creative enough to take your opportunities and make the best of them. Create fun. Create havoc. Create something new and original. Skateboarding is about looking at an object and seeing it in a completely different light than 99% of the people on this planet. It‘s about taking that object and adapting to it; applying a brand new technique to it. Skateboarding is about grabbing those opportunities. About skating that bank that‘s usually a bust except for the 15 minutes between 5:30 pm and 5:45 pm when the guards change shifts. It‘s about seeing opportunities where none had existed before. It‘s about creating those opportunities when none are apparent. Skateboarding can be about pain. Skate- boarding can invariably be about joy…all kinds of successes and achieving goals.
But you get out of it what you put into it. You‘ll find your skills improve with practice; your techniques improve over time. Your judgment even improves along with all of that eventually. Skateboarding is about frustration. The inability to land that trick. The inability for your parents or teachers to understand your obsession with a „useless piece of wood.“ Skateboarding mirrors real life like a charm. Success, setbacks, downfalls, disappointments, victories, defeats, slams, lands, learning and forgetting. Around the next corner could be a cop or a brand new slick ledge you‘ve never seen before. You may get harassed or assaulted. But there‘s only one way to find out. Don‘t be afraid. Give it a good push and see what happens next. If you‘re scared, push just a little harder. Oh yeah. I‘m not talking about skateboarding anymore. I‘m talking about life. But for a skateboarder it‘s the same thing.
