Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for your support, and not beating up on a 28 yr old dude trying to finally play out some of the skate fulfilled fantasies in my head
It is 25 days in, just a bit less than half way through and....well, I wasn't sure at all how I was going to feel even at this pt in time. I am truly humbled by some of the talents I've come across and have humbled myself by dedicating the main portion of my day just for the HOPES of learning the tricks these kids make seem menial. So much talent, and so much passion being channeled in a positive light is what I feel when I'm around some of these guys. Just like music became for me-which is now the reason I can survive, eat, etc-- These kids are putting in the same soul. And whether they end up going somewhere with it, or just applying the passion they developed from it to a next walk of life is a beautiful thing.

This will be my last post in this topic but I encourage you to keep following. I was lucky enough to run into Dylan Witkin's (up and coming skater, check em out if you haven't already) older brother whose employed by goskate.com We got to talking, as he noticed my intensity for learning was a not ormal lol. Once I told him what I was trying to do, he asked me to show what ive got so far. When I did a kick flip and a few others, he asked if I could heelflip. Well, I said no, cuz I had never tried one. told me I could and to try and I just mucked. told him I was scared of getting nutted and I didn't wanna learn this trick..long story short, he made me keep trying despite the scared nuts and I landed a perfect 'bolts' 3rd try.
he said 'told ya so' and actually offered to take me under his wing at no charge..which was just super incredible of him to do and offer. Anybody in the Chicago area looking for lessons I highly recommend. I got him landing a kickflip backside tailslide on a rail 3rd try, 1st try while cm recording.
but for real,
month 2 I'm GONNA FUCK SHIT UP.
