Sometimes, for a reason I can’t come up with, I think about what it means to be a “skateboarder.” You know, when someone asks what you like to do and you say, “I’m a skateboarder.” The word skateboarder carries more of a powerful meaning behind it rather than just saying skater. But that’s just my opinion.
I was going to go into what it was to be skateboarder. It’s just so hard to put into words. Like most things in skating, it’s all feeling. Sure, someone could say they did a kickflip backside tailslide. And that’s what you see. But how does it feel? As for me, it doesn’t matter what trick I do or don’t, I love that feeling. And the fact that I can do whatever I want when I want, gives me so much freedom. I don’t have to get the ball through the basket or stay within a certain boundary.
I’m going to keep this one short. It’s already almost 3am and I have a decently long day tomorrow.
