A short little tale to go along with a not so short photo.

The search for the unknown, the search for truth, the search for the moments that keep the heart racing, that’s what lets the good vibes loose. We skateboard because we know the path of life that most choose to take is boring. We don’t wanna put on fancy clothes and parade around flaunting the money we have, the fancy cars we drive, or the power we have acquired. We just wanna push, fall, get dirty in the streets, and kick it in peace. Unfortunately this free flowing lifestyle causes resentment. People want to stop what lives free. They want to contain it, to chain it up, to control it. Luckily for us we know skateboarding can’t be controlled. It’s a force to be reckoned with. Never stop. No matter how many times it sends you shooting to the ground.
