FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Skateboarding is forever. There is no denying the impact that a piece of wood with wheels on it leaves us. And this doesn’t just go for us that skateboard each and everyday, but for those as well who “used” to skate. Even those who once skated have a changed visual perspective of the world around them. It doesn’t just leave you. You are forever engraved by skate perception in which stairs, rails, and curbs in front of buildings become skate obstacles in your mind. You can’t help but to envision yourself or a skateboarder shredding the obstacle. For those of us that never quit and adopt skateboarding as our lifestyle the world around us is our playground. Or a blank canvas if you will. One in which we can paint any color in as many variations as we want. Forget that competitions exist in the world of skateboarding. Bring it back to the basics , to the originality, and to the no rule do it yourself attitude that it started as. These are our roots! To do what we want however we want whenever we want. The truth is for some its an escape from their daily jobs or routine and for some lucky few its a job. But in the end whatever the scenario we all do it because we love to skateboard. It is our passion and what we want to have as our everything wether that is realistically possible or not. A true love / hate relationship and an addiction / ailment of sorts. It is all of these things bound up into one ball of energy. It keeps us young at heart there is no denying that. Skateboarding is the real fountain of youth.
From the fresh new toddler grom to the seasoned veteran bowl shredder to your local hometown street skateboarding hero we all share the same common bond. It doesn’t matter what you like to skate specifically because uniqueness is everything. The fact that we can all skate so differently and with varying styles is an absolutely beautiful thing. And nothing is more important that having fun. Is it wrong for me to be having more fun and skateboarding better than I ever have in my entire life now that I am well into my 30’s? Of course not! Skateboarding is meant for anyone that needs it. Anyone that wants it. It will always accept you and don’t need anyone else to do it. So pick up your board and get out there. Shred the streets or go to your local skatepark whatever you choose remember to take a moment to stand back and appreciate your time on your board. Not everyone in life finds something as great as we have. Many go lifetimes without finding something they love or are passionate about. We are true artists, all in our own world with individual ideas and visions of how we utilize the same object but just in our own unique way.Your skateboard is a paintbrush.
