I have always had an affinity toward Skater's.
I suppose it's because it is the concrete version of shredding a wave. It has always been about connecting to something bigger, something larger in life. A spiritual movement, a think less, live more kind of lifestyle, where freedom lies in the road ahead of you, and where there is no looking back in that moment. It's a way to move on and to move through. I have always admired the dedication with which skaters ride, they do it for the love. It's the love the moves, that paves the way.
That is where and in the magic lies. That, and the joy of the ride. When it is all said and done, isn't that the secret to life as well? -tM
